    This event was very interesting and interesting for me in my first experience. It was very important to see the behavior and expressions of people on the street, especially with the opportunity to look at them in the eye.

    Sophie Corcoran
    My name is Sophie Corcoran and I have been a Photographer for over 4 years now. I specialise in landscape, animal, and portraiture photography. I started to take an interest in photography when I got my first iPod around 2013-14. I then started to take photography more seriously when I did a class during High School in Year 10.

    I hope to offer a place where I can share my creativity and passion for photography with other people, and be able to help them through their journey to becoming a photographer themselves.

    In between rain showers, I caught this Australian King Parrot having a quiet feed. I shot it on a Canon R7 with a Sigma 150-600 mm zoom 1/500 sec at f8 ISO 2500. It was an overcast day but I have found to get a nice sharp bird shot I need at least 1/500 sec and F8 is the sweet spot of the lens. I used to worry about ISO but the R7 and a bit of Topaz magic crushes any noise.

    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
