    Great topic. Lisa, our instructor, was perfect for the subject. She created an interactive environment, merging concepts with practical advice. Her experience helped us understand better, the concepts and applications. The actual photo shoot was an unexpected benefit. She showed us real life situations and problem solving.

    The Teacher, Lisa, is just wonderful and she is obviously very talented and knowledgeable in the photography field. Because the weather was bad the other students who had signed up cancelled so I had Lisa all to myself!! I really enjoyed the class with Lisa as my teacher.

    Excellent teacher. Speaks in simple and plain English.Does not use any technical jargon. Very practical. She can help you understand your own camera and how to use it. She transformed my theoretical knowledge of Physics into a practice. She experience with film and digital cameras. She deciphered the alphabets, symbols, numbers and, codes on my camera screen. Highly recommend. Her methods appeared erratic and random, and I realized later, that she has rearranged my thought process for day to day use of your camera. All the new camera enthusiasts should attend her classes.Thanks Lisa.

    Marksburg is a castle which was used to protect the town of Braubach in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, rather than as a residence for royal families. Its construction started in 1117. Of the 40 hill castles between Bingen am Rhein and Koblenz, the Marksburg was one of only two which has never been destroyed and it has never fallen into disrepair. 37mm ISO 100 1/200sec f5.6

    Because of horrendous weather, I took the opportunity to practice some macro photography, which is a challenge because I don't have much space or very good lighting to work with. This was in a 3x6 foot space. My desk lamp was about 2 feet from the setup, and I had a small LED light on the same side about a foot away plus a small ring light on the front of my lens. The setup was on a stepladder covered with black satin and blue colored paper in the background. I couldn't fit my tripod so I shot h

    I've been wanting to try this type of image for so long and finally put my mind to doing it. I think it was worth the wait! The only thing illuminating the scene is the image coming from my tablet. Because of the shape of the lightbulb, you get several reflections, which give somewhat of a ghostly affect. I set up my scene against a black backdrop and covered the table with a black sheet. This was to avoid allowing anything else in the room to be visible due to the light of the tablet.Taken wi

    This photo was taken at the Redford Gardens, located on Gaspe Peninsula, Canada. It was a rainy 50 mile bike ride from Sainte-Flavie to Sainte-Felicite, but we had to stop to see this garden. The overcast day and light rain made the colors of the flowers more vivid!

    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

    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.
