    The event was well done. It's small , congenial size -- 4 photographers and 1 guide -- was perfect. Pike Place Market is obviously a visually loaded environment, so there was no shortage of subjects to photograph. The instructor did a great job of distilling the chaos of the environment so we could focus on learning something about street photography. I'd give it a 5-star rating and would consider doing more events of this kind. In short, it was a positive experience.

    I had a great time! Even though I have "advanced" experience it was good to see how other photographers approach the work - the thinking behind the making of a photograph. Ideas for composition were excellent - A,B,C... and I had never thought of holding my camera at waist level. I got several nice shots doing that. Valentina was great to talk to and it is really apparent she takes great joy in photography and sharing her knowledge with others.

    Kevin recovered well from a last minute location change, necessitated by overcrowding at Golden Gardens due to high heat. The Ballard Locks provided ideal conditions and some really wonderful background. Kevin did a great job explaining all of the elements in ways that a near novice could understand and was super helpful and knowledgeable with the hands on aspects that made the class feel very personal! I look forward taking another class with him!

    Good size, good pace. Kevin offered suggestions for seeing compositions but was not insisting we take specific photos. Allowed autonomy to try things discussed. Kevin shared etiquette and explained the 201csocial rules 201d to keep street photography from becoming adversarial. I really enjoyed the class. Kevin understood my unique challenges as I was the only film photographer in the group.

    Title or Location: Palouse in Spring, photo taken in Steptoe Butte State Park
    I usually go to Steptoe Butte State Park every May to photograph Palouse. This year, I waited for the forecast of Aurora in order to photograph both Palouse and Northern Lights. Fortunately, the Aurora forecast predicted that there would be index 8-9 for May 10-11. So I drove over there photographing Palouse in the late afternoon of May 10, Northern Lights over night, and then again Palouse in the early morning of May 11.

    Lone Joshua tree in the Arizona desert. Captured in Date Creek Ranch just off the Joshua Tree Parkway, north of Wickenburg. It's this city's glow causing the light pollution on the horizon.Wickenburg was once called the "Dude Ranch Capital of the World". It still has several ranches and a decidedly western vibe. It's a great place to check out if you wanna get some old west dust in your lungs. Stack of 4, 15" photos. Sony A7RIV, 14mm F1.8, ISO3200.

    The weather forecast for the night Friday the 3rd May looked very good and because the last time I went to Portland Bill I didn't manage to get home with anything good, I thought of giving it another go. Even though it was a 4 hour drive from my house, I'm over the moon I went there because I haven't seen the sky so nice and clean in a very, very long time, it was just perfect.I took quite a few photos and this one is the first that I want to show you because I love it to bits.As always, I

    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and
