    I took this photo in my driveway on March 30, 2004 after the rain cleared. Got out of my car and saw this just laying there and thought "That's pretty cool". I liked that I could see the reflection of the clouds in the water and the multi layers of the elements.

    ITS TAKEN ME YEARS TO PERFECT THE ART OF SHOOTING UP AND INTO FLOWERS. MY FAVORITE FLOWER TO DO THIS TO IS THE CA POPPY. I USE A SMALL SONY POCKET CAMERA FOR THESE SHOTS, SADLY OUR LARGER BULKIER DSLR ARE NOT ABLE TO GET INTO SUCH TIGHT SPOTS. DURING THE SPRING BLOOMS, DIAMOND VALLEY LAKE IS A GREAT PLACE TO ENJOY SO MANY WILDFLOWERS. THIS YEAR UNFORTUNATELY THERE WASN'T MUCH TO SEE AT DVL.

    Was walking the area next to the bay and I can't remember if it was on someone else's property or not but I was like this would be a great shot if you just sat there and look off in that direction. I liked it bc the sun was setting and it had this beautiful glow that interacted with her skin tone and the way the flowers had shadows on the wall. I was like I got to get this shot!

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
