    Enjoyed the workshop. I have been exposed to composition before but it is great to re-visit and improve my composition. Donovan did a great job on the workshop.
    Lots of fun, learned a lot!
    Some Black and White ideas.

    Donovan was knowledgeable and friendly. She had a good plan for the class and helped each of us in an easy going manner.
    Enjoyable! Leader was friendly and helpful. I liked her ideas for shooting but could use more instruction on settings. Next time I?ll try to ask more questions. I would definitely do another one. I?m hoping to find more like minded photographers.
    Nice to be a little challenged. Good outing.

    I walked away with a better understanding of composition and other things. Calvin showed an interest in helping us all improve not only technique but the presentation of an image which is the true art of photography.
    Fun getting out and taking pictures.

    Title or Location: San Juan Islands-Washington State
    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.

    Title or Location: Los Poblanos in the fall
    One of my favorite places to take pictures is at, Los Poblanos. I absolutely love the architecture and the vegetation here. It gives me a sense of peace when visiting. I took several pictures this day, some of which were leaves that had fallen into the pool that came out beautifully.

    A friend gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers...and the very same day my new set of Lume Cubes arrived. The setup was a simple one. Soft afternoon light through the kitchen blinds, one cube off to the side on medium power, and my Tamron 90mm macro lens on a Nikon D7100. Settings: ISO100, 90mm, f3.5, 160 sec on a tripod.

    Title or Location: Murchison Falls, northwest Uganda
    I?m was born and raised in San Francisco and now live in Uganda, working as a professional photographer and safari guide. This lioness is one of the most beautiful creatures I have ever encountered. She was resting high up in a tree at Murchison Falls, in the northwest region. Before taking this photo, she roared at me, baring her sharp canines. It was a simple warning not to overstep her boundaries. The lioness had some cubs located at the base of the tree so she was protective of them. Th
