    Mark was good-humoured and helpful throughout a rainy street photography workshop. He'd prepared well with a great variety of different locations and gave me a good insight into the mechanics of photos in such conditions. Best of all he has enthused me to just get out there more regularly to practice - which I've just done this morning. Thanks, Mark - will definitely sign up for other workshops!

    Me and my family went for a lovely family walk with our two dogs on a chilly winter morning. I decided to take my camera out to capture some lovely images of a local area to us. I took some time to set up and get the right angel and shot of Castle Howard. I am very pleased with how this image was captured with a very light edit in lightroom to pick our the tones and highlights.Camera deails:Canon EOS 5D Mark IVF-stop - f/4Exposure time - 1/250secISO Speed - ISO-100Focal Length 85M

    The photo was taken on December 20 2023 at 7.38am while walking from my house to the train station. I noticed that the colors of the sky were beautiful and that I could make an interesting composition. I put my Samsung phone A14 5G in night mode and took the photo. I started walking towards the station again while enhancing the photo with the snapseed app on my phone. We don't always need good cameras and complex photo editing programs to make interesting photos.Data: f/1.8 ? 1/14 ? 3.

    Title or Location: Water Droplet
    My first attempt at water droplet photography , I've always asumed I couldn't do it and you needed expensive equipment to do it. Well I have a Canon 750D, Tamron 18-270 lens , remote shutter release, a couple of tripods and a Modus 600RT remote flash unit. The flash was set up about 1m to the left of shot above the height of the cup. The camera was set up on full manual mode at 70mm F16 ISO 200 1/200 sec. To set the focus I used a screw placed on the rim of the cup and focused on that , I the

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
