    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.

    This the Hurst waterfall. It is not a naturally occurring waterfall, but is a controlled flow of water pumped from Cove Springs which is just a hundred yards away. There is a viewing platform for the springs as well.

    I had never gotten to see the cherry blossoms at the lexington cemetery before, even for as long as I've lived here. As I decided to visit my grandmother's grave and other ancesters, I sat down on a bench and took in the nature around me. I always feel at peace here.

    Photo was taken on March 14, 2024. The sky was filled with any clouds, and also included a number of contrails, causing a very unique and beautiful piece of art in the sky. It was shot before sunrise as the sun was still not to the horizon, but the colors And light from the sun were showing on the horizon and also reflecting up on the clouds and the contrails. The photo was taken with an iPhone 15 Pro Max.

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    This photo captures a serene moment in my front yard, where I lay on a blanket beneath a amazing tree. The weather was ideal, prompting me to grab my micro lens and focus on this exquisite dandelion.

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
