    This is of spoken word artist Antony Szmierek at a gig last weekend. I was near the front and there was blue lighting which gave him a nice silhouette although it only worked properly in black and white as the blue lighting was a tad harsh.I wanted to pick out the features of his hair and the microphone as much as I could.

    Magpies are frequent visitors to my garden usually chasing off the smaller birds to fill up with food from the bird table. This one landed on my 'posing post' to eat some of the seeds in the top of it. I used a fast shutter to avoid any blurring and a wide aperture to give a nice soft-focus background.Nikon D610, Sigma 150-600mm 1/800 sec f/6.3 Auto ISO 720

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
