    Brad was very patient. He presented shutter speed, aperture and depth of field f-stops and ISO in a way that I finally understood them. The class size was small which made for very personal instruction. Hands on assignments during the class helped to reinforce the concepts. I am very pleased that I chose this class.

    Instructor (Brad?) was excellent. My teen daughter was in the class and I stayed to keep her company/observe. Brad was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He was clear in his teaching and allowed the students opportunities to practice the skills he introduced. He was very willing to answer questions and to help students practice skills to get them closer to their specific goals. I'd definitely bring my daughter to another class!

    We were recently in Florence, and it was unusually hot that day, in the mid-upper 80s. My wife and I decided to hike up to Piazalle Michelangelo overlooking the city. We fortunately took water with us. As can be seen by this picture, it was worth the climb.

    My wife and I are on an Italy tour and arrived at our hotel late at night in Vietri sul Mare so we didn't see much of the area. The next morning we were greeted with a beautiful sunrise. As can be seen, this picture was taken about 30 minutes before sunrise. Our hotel was high on a hill overlooking the main part of Vietri sul Mare, and Salerno in the distance.

    I grew up on Lake Erie and knew I could find a good spot to shoot the Eclipse there. Fortunately some old friends offered a spot near their lake house on the bluffs overlooking the shore. It was awe inspiring to witness and I?m happy my equipment plan produced a great set of image! Gear: Canon R7/RF400mm f2.8 L IS USMFilter: Thousand Oaks OpticalSettings: 1/250, f10, ISO500

    Title or Location: Sunny Sands, Folkestone
    This morning was not very promising, but still I was determined to get out and take pictures! Headed to Sunny Sands and found these two rocks in the sand that caught my interest. The tide was rising and the sun started glowing in the sky! "Perfect moment", and the a wave caught me by surprise and made my feet soaking wet! Apparently sign of good luck, and maybe so, it's one of my best images and was definitely worth it!

    Title or Location: McGee Creek, eastern Sierra Nevada
    I had been out of photography for a few years, and was just getting back into it when my brother and I took a trip to the eastern Sierra for fall colors in October 2017. We had been out all day when we returned to McGee Creek during the late afternoon. A had set up my camera and tripod to get a long exposure shot of leaves on a rock in the creek, when I looked to my right and saw another great image. I realized that my "eye" had returned, and I was exhilarated! Rock with aspen leaf, McGee Cr

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?
