Several years ago at the Great Smokey Mountain’s Nature Summit I met a nice lady named Madonna Martin.  She later attended some of our workshops and has become a good friend. She was one of my students in the Master Class in the Smokies this past weekend.  I was simply astounded at the quality of her work, her great personality and her kindess to all the other attendees.  She was the “hit” of the event and I learned a great deal from her!  I am introducing her to you guys because she will likely be teaching some classes at F32 in Knoxville in the coming months and I highly recommend you sign up for 0ne!!!  I certainly will.  All the images this blog are hers axcept a few product images and one example at the end!  For now just enjoy these wonderful and diverse images!



This was a Master Class and the students are admitted after a portfolio review, because the reviews are much more complete, you can imagne how often my mouth dropped open when Donna’s images hit the screen!  In fairness, everyone had great stuff, but I felt Donna’s work was somthing special!


I shared with my students that I often shoot images to share with my family, via text, with my iPhone.  Donna shared some iPhone stuff I was not aware of and it was an eye opener!  She uses a really cool bracket that is compatible with Arca Swiss ball heads to hold her iPhone for video or long exposure images!



You can get all these products on Amazon and the bracket is a Sunwayfoto CPC-01 priced at $29.95  The quality is very high!  Lots of adjustments.



This is the CamKix Wireless Bluetooth remote for your iPhone Amazon again and for $7.99.



RAVPower iPhone Flash Drive 64gb 2 in 1 with SD Card Reader, Photo Stick,Touch ID Encrypted, USB External Zip Drives for iPhone

So we had e a great time and I larned some new tricks!  With the new tools I was able to do the shot below with my iPhone!!!!!!


So I taught a workshop and “I” learned a lot!


…..and that’s the way it should be!!!!  Thanks Donna!
