    I went to the event to push my boundaries and expand the scope of what I was doing. David fulfilled that for me, encouraging me to move away from automatic settings and try things in landscape photography that I had not done before. I appreciated that leading and will be better at my craft because of that class.

    Title or Location: Align Pilates Studio
    Gear used: Sony a7iii, Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8. 2 Godox AD200, 2 MagGrids and 2 MagSphere's. I wanted to give an edgy look to this photo. I decided to go with split lighting but place 2 lights for both subjects. In order to close down the light spill I used a MagGrid on each Flash system. I also wanted to lessen the specular light so I diffused the flashes with the Magspheres.

    Title or Location: Huntington Beach Pier
    I had recently purchased the Canon RF 28-70 lens. It was my thinking that the 28mm would be wide enough even with the APSC sensor of the Canon R7 camera - even with the 1.6 crop (making the focal length 44.8mm). I was initially discouraged upon arriving onsite and realizing that the sun was setting too far north to allow for the pier to serve as a foreground structure to be backlit by the sun itself - so I used a lifeguard tower instead. Fortunately there were people to offer their silhouettes -

    Title or Location: Columbus Airport, OH
    While on a trip to Ohio, I couldn't help but look at this isolated phone. "Push for help. Emergency." I wondered how many safety nets we have all around us that seldom get used but are there for a purpose, just in case. But then this old phone stood out and felt out of place in this day and age where cell phones are being used for everything.it looked like a good contrast between the old and the new, and how the old seems more and more isolated ... and obsolete.

    Photo was taken in August of 2023 near the San Juan Islands north west of Seattle. We were following a family of Orca who we believe were teaching their young how to hunt. This photo was of an orca in pursuit of a porpoise. I actually have two other photos of the live pursuit with the orca tracking down and catching the porpoise. I would be happy to provide those as well if you?d like.
