Tingley Beach - 10am - 2 Hours
Albuquerque Photography Group
Donovan Noelle Swann
Join this session for tips on how to use your camera settings to creatively capture nature in a visually interesting way. We will be looking at composition, focus, and colour.

Many professional offices and places of business have large prints gracing their wall space of things such as fields of flowers, a butterfly perched on a leaf, and a single dew drop on a rose petal. These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

Title or Location: Quiet Desperation
This painting/illustration was created for my Art Therapy course taken at Edinboro University. The directive was to create a picture with words that described both sadness and hope. Watercolors seemed a fluid medium to use in expression of sad emotions. While the lettering of calligraphy showed hope. The quote from Henry David Thoreau about quiet desperation and verses from Amy Grant's Everybody Needs a Helping a Hand seemed a perfect balance. This is one of my favorite Art Therapy projects.

I live in Edgewood. This was an early morning watercolor practice working on layering and depth. I have a view of the mountain from my porch. However, the view is not "realistic", as I have excluded unwanted objects. Thanks for wanting to use it!

Title or Location: The photo which is referenced in this watercolor was taken at Aoraki/ Mt Cook National Park by Kavan Chay which made the cut for the 2024 Milky Way Photographer of the Year international competition.
I have always loved watching the milky way, its the brightest out at sea. I have never been able to capture it with a camera. I had this idea in my head about painting a red house on a lonely hill with the milky way above it showing how small we are compared to the universe. Then I came across this shot taken out at Aoraki/ Mt Cook National Park by Kavan Chay and it was like the universe had heard me and given me a reference photo. the watercolor looks nothing like the original photo but I love
