  1. Hi Jessica, This is so cool. I haven't taken many flower photos, and it's not the best season for outdoor plants yet, but I have a few pictures I thought could fit the brief. I went for a walk at a conservation area over the weekend, and I thought these pictures felt moody. The plants in the first photo are a bit underexposed, but I like the contrast of the darks and lights in the picture. I definitely feel vulnerable with my composition around landscapes and flowers. I feel like I tend to try to stuff the image and fill the frame with the subject, and I would love to practice nature and floral photography more this year πŸ™‚
  2. Hi Jessica, It's nice to meet you! Thanks so much ☺️
  3. Hi Alpha Universe folks, My name is Andrew Neary, and I'm a journalism student in Ontario, Canada. I started taking photos with a DSLR two years ago, and I've loved it ever since. I have so much to learn, but I'm loving the process and discovering the styles and stories I can share. Last month, I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala and work with Indigenous Mayan high school students in mountain communities to share stories important to them and learn together. In Canada, I've done some photojournalism as well as some wedding, corporate event, and birthday photo shoots. I'm excited to be more active here and learn alongside the talented folks on this forum. It's nice to meet you!
  4. That makes a lot of sense. I'm emailing my local conservation authority now! Excellent points. Thank you 😊
  5. What would you say to someone interested in starting conservation photography? Could you speak a bit to the storytelling that may be involved?
  6. I've seen some folks suggest shooting people's reactions to the eclipse rather than shooting the eclipse itself if you don't have a solar filter. How do you feel about unique/alternate approaches to eclipse photography?
  7. This is so cool. Thank you for sharing. I would love to apply to grow a project I was part of in Guatemala last month. Would you have any suggestions for applications that combine conservation and education? From the past eight months of working on the project, I have built relationships with the communities we worked with, which seems like it could help. Are there any suggestions you would have for someone applying in my position?

  13. Hi All, These photos are incredible and inspiring. I'm not sure this is the right feel for this thread, but I took a photo of a duck in Guatemala at golden hour that I loved, and I wanted to share.
