    Hello I didn't know that I booked 2 places until Mark asked where my friend was. Then I was told if I was the only person I would of got cancelled. This wouldn't have suited me as I am going away next week. Anyway, I have a good understanding of manual photo taking. Mark was extremely patient and helped me. I was able to understand my camera better and now know what some of the features were and how to use them. I would be glad to have Mark again. I also learned that I will need a zoom lens and I plan to buy this next year before my trip to America. My lens is a basic lens, which is ok for the time being. My friend put me onto your lessons as her husband had attended a class previously.

    I was driving back from Victor Harbour in the early hours of the morning, I turned onto the wrong road I was just gobsmacked by the light shining through the trees. To make matters better a bunch of kangaroos started hopping out onto the road. I stopped, got my camera out and just started snapping, perfect timing as a roo jumped out as i was taking the photo.

    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

    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.
