    Stefano Cavallini
    Stefano's love for photography started in 2011 when he tried his friend's DSLR, none of them knew how to use it in a mode other than the auto back at that time, but he could see the big difference with a compact camera or a smartphone. He decided to buy his first DSLR camera and to learn how to use it in manual mode.

    After 5 years, his love and knowledge for photography increased and he managed to upgrade to professional equipment and to open his own business.

    He mainly works in the wedding industry but he loves different kinds of photography, like landscapes and animals.

    It was dull day in February and snapped this image with my trust canon 5dmk111 and a Sigma 12-24. I love photo manipulation along with Wildlife Photography so decided to beef it up a bit so ran it through a Mirror software on my computer that creates bubbles similar to Raindrops.It certainly gives it a "Wow" look so ended up being an interesting image that started quite dull.

    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
