    This was my example of someone coming back from a long hiatus as a much better version of themself. I took a break from photography and I came back to it with a new camera, new shooting knowledge, new editing knowledge, and a renewed drive to become better. I always thought my sunset photos were lacking, so I sought out advice on how to properly shoot and edit them better. This was me pushing myself to be better at something that I felt I couldn't do well and I feel like I've conquered that.

    I had a creative vision in mind to try using a plastic baggie around the edge of my lens to allow for a more "dreamier , soft" vibe. This vision came to life in more ways than I could have expected. There should be no rules for photography. Go out there and create art in your own unique way. Canonr6 canon 35mm 1.4 lens used.

    This was my first attempt at astrophotography in Brisbane and was a trial shot more than anything. I went looking for an eastern facing foreground knowing that the Milky Way core would be rising at around 10pm from the east, leaving me few options where light pollution wouldn't be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too harsh at vic point. I loved the foreground and the lightning in the distance on the horizon, and the satellite creaping in was another unexpected surprise with th

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I
