Many professional offices and places of business have large prints gracing their wall space of things such as fields of flowers, a butterfly perched on a leaf, and a single dew drop on a rose petal. These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

    I was sitting at home watching the sun set develop and decided to go to South Gare quick, which is only a few miles from my home. A very well photographed area with many honeypot shots available, I always try to find something a little different, be it picking out details on boats, grasses or other coastal artefacts rather than the usual "Paddy's Hole", fishermen's huts, lighthouse or boats. There is always a stack of lobster pots so decided to use these as foreground interest/ leading line towa

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
