    I've had my DSLR for years but had never used it much. I would get too frustrated trying to figure out how to use it, and it felt like a waste of time fiddling with all the buttons and stuff. My images were almost never exposed right. David helped me learn what some of those 'gizmos' do, what they mean, etc. By the end of class, my images were much improved. I still need to practice more, which I'm looking forward to doing, but the class really helped a lot. I've already signed up for a couple more classes because I know I'll be well taught!

    My wife and I were having dinner at the Firefly Restaurant on top of the Hotel. I came back later and was allowed to go to the balcony just to take pictures. No matter what corner of the building I was, It was a great shot. It was hard to get a good photograph in focus that high on a building because the building keeps swaying back and forth.

    Thank you for the consideration.Background to this photo.A couple of years ago on our local community page I saw a photo of a tree covered in bioluminescent fungi saying it was found in Gerroa, 5 minutes drive from me. Wow how amazing, so I set out to find it and photography it too. Since then I developed an interest in fungi and look forward to Autumn when there is plenty about. To enable me to photograph ghost fungi ( omphalotus nidiformis) I go for a bush walk during the day mostly

    Mesa Arch is about a 25 minute walk from the parking lot in Canyonland National Park. At night, it's the darkest sky I've ever seen. This photo represents 20 stacked images of the Milky Way combined together in Starry Landscape Stacker. The result required the scene to be slightly brightened in post to bring out the foreground.

    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 ??
