    This course was really informative for me having never done long exposure photography before. Toby took the time to set up my camera and explain what settings I needed to use for long exposure photography. He also let me play around with the settings to get the photo I wanted but was on hand if I needed any help. Toby was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this course.

    A January sundown, after the starlings had done their thing, I wandered along Brighton's seafront as the sunset was turning into a real stunner. Among the silhouetted figures peppering the shore, I noticed the cyclist, paused for a moment with friends. Shot on Canon 90D, with a touch of shadow lifting and luminance smoothing.

    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
