    This is my second class with Julia. I have nothing but praise for her skill teaching student's with very different experience levels. She is smart, kind, and willing to share her photographic expertise. The course covered what light to shoot in and ways to modify that light, posing, and taking candids of the class and of the people enjoying Forsythe Park. I consider it a bargain at $43.00.

    The course w/Julia was different than I expected; however, it pushed me out of my comfort zone of photography. Julia is a great teacher and was able to get all students into B&W photography settings which really inspired me to stay in monochrome the rest of the day.

    This photo is of a Great Egret in colorful mating plumage. I caught him performing his mating ritual. It was an overcast day, with occasional light rain in early April. Because of the weather I used my Pentax k70 with my 300mm F4 prime lens which has robust weather sealing. Settings were 1/1000th, F4, iso 320

    Title or Location: VIVID Sydney - Sydney Harbour
    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.

Takes me back to my days in the Navy and seeing the jets coming and going from Hickam AFB when I was stationed at Pearl Harbor NSY&IMF and would shoot a round of golf at Hickam AFB's Mamala Bay golf course after working on the submarines. A couple of the holes on that course are near the runway for the base. The surprise sound of a

    This photo is one I took in september 2023. On this night I captured quite a few different photos and perspectives of the milky way over and around the bridge. My goal on this evening was to take full advantage of the position of the milky way as there are very few opportunities that you can photograph the milky way positioned near the bridge during the year. I found this photo with other ones from that night I had not edited. Astro photography needs conditions to be right in relation to moon,
