    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.

    Title or Location: Clumber park bridge
    This bridge had been damaged by vandals driving a car onto it and hitting the bridge, damaging the stone pillars on the side, you can see in the photo the lighter coloured stone work which has replaced the damaged pillars. I took photos of this bridge from differentangles, but this one stood out, this was taken mid afternoon on a Olympus omd em10 camera with a 42mm lens hand held.

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    Title or Location: Horseshow Bend in Page, AZ
    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.

    Title or Location: Nene Valley Railway - Wansford
    I was on a leisurely family walk going towards Nene Valley Railway in Wansford when serendipity struck, and I found myself in the perfect spot to capture a captivating moment. The sight of a steam train preparing to depart from the station sparked a rush of excitement and nostalgia. The timeless allure of steam trains and the bustling atmosphere of the railway added a touch of history and charm to my photography experience.

    Title or Location: Halstead Kansas, outside my house
    It was a cloudy day and my cat was up in the tree. he had always had very deep blue, but with all the defused light from the clouds and the contrast from the tree bark, It sent me running for my camera.I shot it on a Nikon D5600, with a 70 - 200mm lens, on January 25, 2024.I shot it raw while in manual mode, the aperture was 4.1, the iso 100, and the shutter speed was 1 over 700.

    Title or Location: Three Cliffs Bay, The Gower, Swansea
    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star
