    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Steven Edger
    Steven has been taking pictures for nearly 5 decades. He started taking pictures with a film camera made by Kodak, and after mowing what seemed like thousands of yards he saved enough money to purchase his first Nikon. He served on his high schools year yearbook staff as a photographer.
    His companion throughout his life has been a camera.

    He has traveled to numerous countries, and lived in several more. In 2005 after meeting a Ukrainian girl at University of Kentucky, he ended the semester and packed his bags and headed overseas to explore and visit someplace new.

    After Ukraine, he traveled to Thailand and lived there for 3 years. He loves traveling and meeting new people and cultures - it is one of life's greatest gifts.

    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
