Street Photography

People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography.

    This was much better than the previous lesson I took with y'all. Crystal had a plan, started with a lesson giving us new ideas & knowledge to practice with & learn. And throughout got lots of good suggestions & feedback. Stopping after each location to look through each others photos helped a ton too, was super educational, lots clicked in my mind. I walked a way with a significant array of architecture photography techniques I didn't have before. So glad I went.

    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.

    Crystal Molina
    I started my photography journey eighteen years ago when my oldest two children, twins, were born. I wanted beautiful pics of my babies but didn't have much of a budget. So I started learning all I possibly could about photography and I fell in love with it. I have done various types of photography. I don't love just one photographic subject but any and all things beautiful. If there's beauty to behold I want to capture it! I don't know it all but will gladly share what I have been blessed to learn.

    Crystal Molina is available for private bookings

    Available for private tutoring, weddings, portraits, and events. Please contact to schedule.

    This rare phenomena (SAR - Stable Aurora Red) occurred during the strong geomagnetic storm last week. Many people thought this was the aurora, but in fact this is something different that only occurs during very intense geomagnetic storms. SARs may look like auroras, but they not the same. While aurorae come from impulsive bursts of energetic particles along high-latitude magnetic field lines (and therefore from distant regions in the magnetosphere), SAR arcs come from a prolonged drainage o

I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
