Watch your back(ground)! For many beginners and those just getting to grips with manual camera settings spending time selecting the correct aperture and shutter speed to perfectly expose the subject is, rightly, essential.

But it is very easy to be so focused (no pun intended!) on this that other elements receive less attention. One of these often-overlooked elements is the background, and this meetup will be an opportunity to learn how to improve composition by, simply, considering the background. We'll be exploring colour, light, pattern, blur, etc and how to use the environment / context to really show off the subject.

    The course was just what I needed to get me started with a new passion. The instructor Stacey was great to work with. Stacey was clear, helpful and had a lot of knowledge. We had a good morning at Shearwater Lake and touched on the creative side of Photography as well as the some of the technical side. I would highly recommend Stacey as an instructor and the course for anyone who wants to take there pictures to another level. All I need to do now is practice.

At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.

    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having
