Abstract Photography

In this workshop, we will explore the art of creating striking and thought-provoking images through the use of abstraction.

    Attending a workshop is always an exhilarating experience, especially when it provides an opportunity to connect with fellow photography enthusiasts. The Architecture Photo Workshop, led by Meghna, was no exception in this regard. The camaraderie and exchange of ideas among participants were the highlights of this event. From the outset, I was eager to delve deeper into the nuances of architecture photography, a genre I'm not very familiar with. My expectations centered around gaining insights and techniques for architectural photography. While the workshop excelled in offering discussions with other photographers, it fell short of my expectations in terms of content depth. The sessions leaned more towards a casual meetup rather than an informative workshop on architecture photography. Meghna, the workshop leader, was undoubtedly amiable and supportive. Her approachable demeanor fostered a comfortable and engaging environment. However, when it came to imparting specialized knowledge or advanced tips in architecture photography, the workshop did not quite hit the mark. Reflecting on this experience, I wonder if perhaps my expectations were misaligned with the workshop's intended offering. For those seeking a pleasant gathering to meet and converse with fellow photography enthusiasts, this workshop is a perfect fit. However, for me, looking for learning about architecture photography, this workshop didn't meet my hopes.

    This was my first event and I really enjoyed it. Nate was great at explaining and providing direction to open a creative perspective. When I asked questions he answered in a way that was I could follow and understand. I definitely recommend Nashville photography society and the classes they offer. It's a great way to listen and learn from others while furthering your own knowledge be it beginner or advanced. I will definitely take another in the very near future.

Nathan is very knowledgeable and calm and patient with his teaching ... he came up with good examples to explain the various concepts we were learning. Everyone got individual attention and he was willing to answer any of your questions thoroughly and to your satisfaction. Highly recommend this class!

    In 2022, I moved to Nashville and was immediately drawn to the Parthenon replica in Centennial Park. Fascinated by its architecture, I snapped a photo with my phone to remember the moment. It's the only life-size replica of the Parthenon in the world, making it a unique sight to behold in Nashville.

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea
