    Loved it?more please! James did a great job of putting us at ease with the up close environment between photographer and model. He also made sure to get us in various situations that we will encounter or should look for such as framing, low light, back light etc.

    Learned a lot from this event. James was very hands on and even took time to look at my personal camera and helped me get to know it better. The hands-on exercises also helped understand the settings and how it affects the photos. Overall great experience!

    I enjoyed the event. I have never really delved into street photography and this was an informative way to try and get started. The teacher was informative and helped guide me to see a lot of shots I wouldn't have previously thought of.

    I really enjoyed this photo session. It was my first time shooting in studio, and John was really good at explaining everything such as light, light metering and backdrops... The models were also great to work with. The equipment used, lights, backdrops, etc... was first grade professional too.

    John was great when it came to my canon. He answered every question I had and more. I have been practicing a lot in the manual mode. I am quite happy with this course. I think there should be a one on one shooting.

    In the bustling rhythm of everyday life, passions often wait patiently for their moment to shine. For me, that moment arrived with the sun's gentle retreat behind the moon's graceful arc, painting the sky with the ethereal glow of a solar eclipse.With childhood memories of squinting at an eclipse sans proper gear, I couldn't resist the call to action when the celestial event graced Halifax's skies. Armed with nothing but my fervor for photography and a borrowed telephoto lens from a close frie

    Who doesn't love a visit to Peggy's Cove, particularly with an oncoming change in weather. This photo was taken in late afternoon as the clouds rolled in to replace the blue sky. At the moment I captured this photo, it seemed to be just me, one other photographer (captured in the scene), the sea, rocks, sky and Peggy's Cove Lighthouse. Shot on Canon R6mkII, RF 15-35 f2.8, 24mm, F/11, Shutter Speed 1/1600 sec. Edited in LRC and Photoshop.

    This was my first attempt at astrophotography in Brisbane and was a trial shot more than anything. I went looking for an eastern facing foreground knowing that the Milky Way core would be rising at around 10pm from the east, leaving me few options where light pollution wouldn't be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too harsh at vic point. I loved the foreground and the lightning in the distance on the horizon, and the satellite creaping in was another unexpected surprise with th

    This photo was taken a few years ago. I waited a long time for the right light and atmosphere. I was already cold when this picture appeared. I was very happy that my efforts were so generously rewarded.

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I
