People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography.

The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

    I shot this on tripod, 3 shot bracket, with my D600 and a Tokina 11-20mm @17mm. I used Photo Pills to nail down exactly where the sun would set and setup hoping for some magic. Nature can be a cruel mistress to landscape photographers but that night she was kind and blessed me with several great shots. I did, however, have to freeze to get them. Totally worth it though

    I setup under the bridge Saturday about an hour before sunset hoping I would get some good colors as the sun dipped down. It was about 30 degrees out and rather cold down by the water but I was determined to get a good shot if nature cooperated. As the last bits of light faded away it happened the sky started to transition from reds to the deeper purples of evening. The image is a 3 shot bracket on tripod merged into a HDR. Shot with:Nikon D600, Tokina 11-20 @17mm. Post process was don

    Wasn't terribly hopeful about finding anything good that morning, went out a bit later than I should've. But, I stumbled upon this small group of deer looking for food each other. Tried to get just a bit closer but I got greedy and scared them off after just a few shots unfortunately.Camera - Canon R6 Mark IILens - Canon 800mm f5.6

Even though it was a 4 hour drive from my house, I'm over the moon I went there because I haven't seen the sky so nice and clean in a very, very long time, it was just perfect.I took quite a few photos and this one is the first that I want to show you because I love it to bits.As always, I

    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
