Photos of the Week

We are calling 2021The Year of Education.

"Why?" you might ask.

This year, my goal is to help you learn something new by showing you how each artist created their photo. I hope 2021 will be a year of learning and growing for us all!

Chelsea Marrin created this image nearly by accident. "Happy accidents! Sometimes it's fun to experiment and think outside of the box. Try new techniques! You may learn a new style or trick."

  • Camera Body - Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Lens - Lensbaby Sweet 50
  • Shutter - 1/2
  • ISO - 100
