    I extremely enjoyed the photography class, it was a great outdoor experience. I want to emphasize that Frankie was a great instructor, she answered each of our questions and gave us her full support. In addition to preparing a fairly complete theoretical material. It was a very pleasant experience for me and I would do it again with Frankie. I 100% recommend this photography class.

    Frankie was very detailed in her presentation and packet provided for us to keep and refer back to at a later date when needed. What I appreciate the most is that she's kept in contact with me to follow up and also provide feedback on a couple different photo shoots completed and made great recommendations. Thank you Frankie. I'll be back soon!!

    This is the view that greets you as you enter downtown Modesto, California. I've always loved this sign, and was thrilled to capture it in this shot. The day I took this was May the 4th, during a celebration of all things Star Wars. I'm proud to be from Modesto, and I hope George Lucas is too!

    I try to visit Yosemite once a month to take photos as the views are always spectacular and ever changing. This shot was taken in April from the Cook's Meadow Loop Trail not far from the Northside Road. The photo was taken on my tripod and is a bracketed shot of three photos, merged together in Lightroom creating this HDR image.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

    Photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) taken on New Brighton promenade on Friday 10th May 2024 (around 11:53pm) - the night when the Northern Lights was visible from much of the UK.I'd be thinking of heading out to try and catch a photo of the Northern Lights for the past few weeks as had seen notifications on various apps and on Facebook that there might be a chance of seeing them. I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha

    I started taking my son to RIAT in 2008 when he was just six years old. He had to follow Dad, and would be seen armed with my old Canon 350D. I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Title or Location: Near Duluth, Minnesota, USA
    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
