    It was a slow start as only two of us attended and no model was available. However the energy and enthusiasm from our tutor was immense. We did manage to find a model who happened to be walking through the Abbey ruins with her own photographer and we asked if we could join them and they agreed. This is where our tutor came into her own, her direction and attention to detail was outstanding . She was keen to view the images we had taken and provide support for further development . I think we were luck to have her presence as a tutor .

    This photo was taken on my Sony Xperia 1 iii smartphone at Virginia Water Pavilion Lake. After a long walk around I managed to be at the perfect spot to capture the golden hour at 18:40 on 5 September 3023. I took this shot to represent happy times with your loved ones. I edited the shot slightly with lightroom to increase the white balance and bring out those gorgeous colours. After a busy period at work this was just what I needed.

    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.
