    Jason did an excellent job of slowing down the process of HOW to shoot street photography in Manhattan. He watched the way we shot and gave useful feedback to us accordingly. He also took the the time with set ups, camera settings and how to shoot and move in a crowd. I'd be happy to go out with him again. He made it fun!

    My life has been unconventional, needed some time off after High School so I left NJ and went to work for the Forest Service in NH, from there Ski bumming in VT, a summer in the Virgin Islands, another working with the Native Americans in SD and then fishing in Alaska. Time to get back to college so got a A.S. in Bus. from LSC in VT and then a BFA in Photo from RIT. A reluctant move to the Big Apple, for I was a country kid and now I have become a hipster in the heart of Brooklyn. In the interim, marriage, a kid, a few cats, a dog, divorce and a few landlord lawsuits. Doing the photography thing the whole time with the typical up and down success and droughts, have worked with celebrities, corporations, some magazine covers, been on TV met good people, evil people. Work in progress, why don't you become a part of it!

    A few nights before this photo, my buddy Nile?s asked if I want to shoot the full moon on Sunday. I checked a couple of line ups and this one worked. I drove out to NJ, set my tripod up, there were only 2 other people there. 15 minutes before the moon sat on the edge of The Edge, there were about 30 people there taking a similar 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.
