    I enjoyed the class, learned some techniques for capturing motion blur in photos
    Andrew was knowledgable and flexible, but we were not shooting at a great time of day or in a prime motion blur location. He offered clear instructions with hands-on assistance, and he demonstrated in addition to observing. Very good combo. Nice small group with interesting participants.

    Nikon Z9 70-200mm at f8 with 4-10sec exposuresThree separate pictures were taken and stitched together in photoshop to create this panoramic. Stitching photographs is surprisingly easy with longer lenses. Try it on landscapes with nothing moving. I'm surprised this one worked with so many variablesKeep creating content :)

    We spent time experimenting with long exposures, capturing the light trails of the planes as they crossed the night sky. The park, usually busy during the day, had a quieter, more serene vibe at night. We enjoyed the simple pleasure of good food and the company of friends while observing the planes overhead.Nikon D3400 Nikkor 18-140mm lensf5.6 100 ISO 25s shutter mounted on tripod

    I converted my bonus room into a tea party theme and bought a bubble maker. My friend let me photograph her daughter Lyra, who was turning 2. Lyra was a natural in front of the camera. Was so excited to capture this moment of her being a child.

    Title or Location: Washington National Cathedral
    Went on a photo walk and three miles later ended up at the Washington National Cathedral. While on the Cathdral's observation level, I turned a corner and spotted a lengthy hallway with a man at the end of it. Had to move quickly to grab the photo as the guy seemed to only be glancing out of the window. Several other photos were also taken during this shoot, each with the mindset of showing how incredible human-made creations can be when we have a purpose.

    Title or Location: Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square PA
    Hi all! Last weekend I was looking for a brief getaway from the DC area, and I decided to head up to beautiful Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square PA. Beautiful place to walk around, and while I was in the woodlands area this majestic bird flew up to a branch near me. The lighting was perfect, and I am glad that I was able to capture a brief moment like this.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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
