We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

    Adeyemi Salako
    I, Adeyemi, am a storyteller behind the camera, capturing moments in digital form. The world as I see it is visually told through my photographic journey, from the subtle movement of light to the spectacular tapestry of hues. My lens has passionately captured a variety of landscapes, raw emotions, and the poetry inherent in ordinary life over a period of 5 years. Every picture is a canvas on which feelings are captured in a moment in time.

    My art aims to arouse feelings, stimulate the mind, and highlight the beauty in the commonplace. By utilizing composition and perspective in a unique way, I encourage viewers to go on a visual journey and uncover narratives within every picture. Come along with me as we examine the visual symphony of life, click by click.
    Muniba Tariq
    As an architect specialising in architectural and landscape and Urban photography, my work center on capturing the essence of structures and natural landscapes through visual storytelling. I strive to highlight the interplay between design, environment, and human interaction. Photography is my passion. after studying photography for a year I would consider my self as an all rounder. Which means I'm equally confident in capturing human portraits. Each area offers its own unique challenges and rewards, but my experience enables me to navigate them all.
    My areas of expertise include Landscape, photography, architectural photography, and general photography.

    I knew in my mind, the type of shot I wanted from the tiger. The weather was cold & miserable and I would be happy with getting the shot & going straight home, but no, the shot took 5 hours!! The tiger was either pacing up and down or facing the wrong way. Eventually, he shifted & was facing me and it wasn?t long before he gave the bestest, longest yawn & I shot away. After the moment, I looked at the screen & looked at my shots with a big smile & rushed back home to get warm.

    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
