    I loved being able to have a model there and getting to feel more comfortable with my settings. Rebecca was a great instructor. Made the group very comfortable. Walking around and seeing new areas for photos was also extremely helpful

    Becca is so helpful and easy to talk to. I ask a lot of questions; some of them are very basic, and I?ve asked them a few times as I?m learning. She?s so patient and such a great resource . The whole group was fun to be with. I learned something from everyone.

    was a great learning event -- I now understand how to 'use' the manual settings in a way that makes sense; having the opportunity to have 'hands on' experience in different settings was the key; Becca was wonderful; patient and spent time with everyone as we asked questions; the small group was also great.

    Title or Location: Near the Monches/Merton Ice Age Trail Parking Lot
    I went out in search of a foggy barn scene. By the time I got to the area most of the good photogenic fog had burned off - and I was slightly lost - so I decided to give up and head home. The GPS nav guided me down a road I'd never been on and I came across a bridge covered in heavy graffiti. I intended to shoot this with a CPL filter and drag the shutter a little, but I dropped the CPL filter. You wouldn't think those bounce as well as they do, and it was whisked quickly down stream.

    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.

    Title or Location: Grant park beach, South Milwaukee WI
    We planned on shotting from a high vantage point but the view was blocked by trees so we had to rush to get to the beach before the sun was up.Thankfully this tree trunk was there laying on the beach so I moved it around a few times to help with the composition. The rest is history.

    The weather forecast for the night Friday the 3rd May looked very good and because the last time I went to Portland Bill I didn't manage to get home with anything good, I thought of giving it another go. Even though it was a 4 hour drive from my house, I'm over the moon I went there because I haven't seen the sky so nice and clean in a very, very long time, it was just perfect.I took quite a few photos and this one is the first that I want to show you because I love it to bits.As always, I

    Title or Location: St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park
    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    I went on a hike in Yosemite Valley and unexpectedly found this tree that had a heart shaped hole in the trunk. I stayed until dusk and used my red light on my headlamp to cast the red glow inside the heart. I was inspired by my then girlfriend. I love LOVE!

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
