    It was fantastic! Had a great time walking through downtown Little Rock and seeing how others view things. I learned quite a bit.
    very useful. I learned a lot. Thanks Ken.
    Great class - Ken was friendly and knowledgeable.

    The beginner meetup was well worth it. Having the opportunity to learn the concepts and then immediately put them into practice, as well as honest criticism and personalized advice from a pro is something you certainly can't get from YouTube. Ken has a great teaching style and is super approachable for those like myself who are breaking into the hobby. Also just a fun dude to be around. 10/10 would recommend.

    This class was great! I really appreciated the individualized camera support received. I loved the small group, the location and timing. Ken was so knowledgeable and kind. I would highly recommend this class to anyone.
    Had a wonderful hands on experience with Ken. He was very helpful and patient with explaining things to me. Can't wait to see what the other classes entail.

    It was a good time, learned some techniques from Ken.
    It was very informative and I learned a lot from ken. He's a very good instructor and the information is invaluable.
    I learned a lot during this lesson; it was an excellent value for the money. The instructor was very knowledgeable, and the small group size enabled him to spend a lot of time working with us individually. He introduced concepts effectively and customized parts of the lesson based on each student's interests. I feel much more confident working with my camera now than I did before attending.

    Title or Location: South Point, Kona - Hawaii
    South Point is the Southernmost point of the Hawaiian Islands and the United States. Beautiful panoramic views provided the backdrop of this gold sunset. The sun was going down fast and, the battery in the camera was depleting fast as well. It showed at 1. While I had a spare battery in my pocket, I did not want to lose valuable 10 seconds changing it with a 200-6000mm lens hung around my neck. I was able to take about 8-9 series of sunset shots and this one was the last one, and the battery fi

    Title or Location: Night-time at Portland Bill lighthouse
    The weather forecast for the night Friday the 3rd May looked very good and because the last time I went to Portland Bill I didn't manage to get home with anything good, I thought of giving it another go. Even though it was a 4 hour drive from my house, I'm over the moon I went there because I haven't seen the sky so nice and clean in a very, very long time, it was just perfect.I took quite a few photos and this one is the first that I want to show you because I love it to bits.As always, I

    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

    I went on a hike in Yosemite Valley and unexpectedly found this tree that had a heart shaped hole in the trunk. I stayed until dusk and used my red light on my headlamp to cast the red glow inside the heart. I was inspired by my then girlfriend. I love LOVE!

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    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

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    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.
