    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!

    One of my friends said to me when taking photographs don't choose the obvious. Don't opt for what is directly in front of you. Look back. Look to the side. Look up! Hence the different perspective.The image is also full of my favourites go to's, line, reflection and contrast. I was very fortunate that the weather was overcast that day. Otherwise some of the elements might have been lost in the bright sunshine.

    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having
