    Title or Location: Leatherhead Theatre
    I am a professional theatre photographer. This was taken during the dress rehearsal for a dance show for a local dance company. The lighting was set and I had no control over it. I had to set the camera to suit the conditions. There was no flash and it was all set in the camera. I set the camera to F4 250th iso5000. I have a decent camera so I wasn't worried about the high iso. I followed the dancer and when she went for the move I was set to capture it.

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    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
