    I really enjoyed the spot we went to as I?d never been there before. So much bird life and beauty in the water and surrounding bushland. It took me a while to familiarise myself with aperture, shutter speed and IOS..in fact I?m still not so sure I get that. But I guess like anything, it just takes a bit of playing around and experimenting with the camera and my different lenses to get a better understanding of these things. Craig was extremely patient and attentive, answering any questions. To be fair, I could have stayed there all day and played around with my camera, I already feel better equipped to take better quality photographs. Thank you.

    It was my first workshop so I wasn't sure what to expect. Craig gave us all a few pointers. He invested a bit more time with people who were more beginner end of the scale but made sure that he checked in with each person, had a look at what they were shooting and suggesting tweaks that might help. It was an enjoyable morning. Nice group of people as well.

    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.

    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    Last February, I left Sydney with my friends at 6pm to capture the first Milky Way view of 2024. I was very anxious because I saw a lot of clouds on the way, but I was really happy to see clear skies as I passed Newcastle. When we arrived at the lighthouse, fortunately we were the only ones in the group, so we were able to take photos without any disturbance. The lighthouse light, which was not too bright, was very helpful in filming.
