Carl Smorenburg is known for his incredible landscape images of the Drakensberg. He has recently completed a trip to Kubu Island, Botswana, to shoot the baobabs and the salt plains. He will share his experiences and landscape photos. He will also give us a technical talk on how to shoot the Milky Way, and edit the photos. 

Not to be missed. All welcome, please invite your friends and family!

2.  Set Subject - August - Textures

Texture Photography can sometimes be challenging, since composition, light and depth work differently than in, for example, landscape photography. In texture photography, it's all about patterns, colours and depth, and every single detail of a texture plays a significant role in the overall perception of the photograph.

The closer the better. Get in close to the subject. and the texture will be more detailed and clearer to see. Use depth of field to draw attention to areas of the texture. 

Look for something different, and experiment with different styles of shooting. Although there is lots of texture around us, creating an interesting and appealing photograph takes care and time.
