    Really enjoyed the event - Sanro took the time to teach and explain technical stuff over and over. I'm not a number person so always struggled to learn basic photography knowledge. Sanro knows his trade, he's very patient and supportive. Thanks so much Sanro!

    Great portrait photography session run by Sanro this weekend. He was very knowledgeable (including technical aspects e.g. light spectrums behind settings) and gave each of us individualised constructive feedback. I felt I really improved over the session and I have lots to get on a practice with. Sanro was so enthusiastic that the session went on longer than it should! It was great value for money - thank you so much Sanro!

    A black and white edit of the classic dandelion clock. I had to remove some of the seeds to get the look I was after. This was shot with a 105mm macro lens and a Pope Shield macro diffuser to allow for a small aperture to retain the focus of the clock.

    This was a lucky shot. I sprayed this sprig of bluebells a few times with water then took a handheld shot using my new macro diffuser attached to my R7/Sigma 105 combo and Godox flash.It wasn't until I reviewed the image that I noticed the crab spider (Philodromus sp running crab spider).... Initially I worried that I had damaged the spider but she was fine and wandered off while I was shooting.She turned an average shot into something much more interesting..Taken at Beckenham Place Park

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
