Shooting the Stars

When people ask me what my favourite type of photography is I never have to think for too long. When I answer, the reaction is pretty much the same majority of the time.

Creating Art with Light in-between the Golden Hours

Motion-blur and High-Key Photography   Most wildlife photographers are under the impression that we can take technically correct photos only during the golden hours just after sunrise and just before sunset.
