    Andrew was so wonderful and patient lol. He had three of us older gals who barely had knowledge of our cameras. He being a Canon user we expected he couldn?t help us with settings on our Nikons- but he knew them! He was a wealth of information and the group being small, we really got a great start on using our cameras. We signed up for the Dec class when he said he should be teaching it!

    Me and a good buddy of mine went down to Gates of the Mountains for a scheduled boat tour on the Missouri River. I brought my Canon Rebel T6i with me and had a lot of fun shooting! I took this shot while on the boat ride and made some edits to make it pop a little bit! Overall, this is one of my favorite photos I've took! I really wish I could go back there! It's a hidden gem!!

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    This photo captures a serene moment in my front yard, where I lay on a blanket beneath a amazing tree. The weather was ideal, prompting me to grab my micro lens and focus on this exquisite dandelion.

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
