Tonight I was just playing around with some sunset photography. These photos were taken with my Sony A7R3 and my new Sigma 12-24 lens. The starburst effect you see on the sun was created by using a small f-stop... in this case it was shot at f/16 I believe. Kinda cool, eh? The low angle of this shot helps to add impact to this sunset photo.

Today I did something a little different... I photographed a family portrait session. The weather was fantastic and it was great to create a family photograph for them again... it had been a number of years since the last time. What a great memory this will be for them, in a year that has been mostly forgettable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
