    Colby Kohn
    Hello, I'm Colby, a lifelong photography enthusiast who discovered the magic of capturing moments at a young age. Growing up amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Maine, particularly in Acadia National Park, I fell in love with the art of photography. To me, photography is the art of capturing light, and I believe that it is the interplay of light, shadows, and color that brings depth and soul to each image. With a deep passion for pushing the boundaries of light and colors, I strive to create visuals that transcend the ordinary and evoke emotions in the viewer.

    After pursuing a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing from the University of Maine, I decided to follow my true passion and establish an art studio in the vibrant city of Fort Worth, Texas. From this creative hub, I embark on a journey of visual storytelling, capturing heartfelt portraits and intricate still lifes that celebrate the beauty of everyday objects. I believe that light is the language of photography, and by skillfully manipulating and harnessing light, I aim to create images that are vibrant, dynamic, and filled with life.

    What I love about this photo is how feral it is. Jack is slightly out of focus, moving around, kicking the air, balancing on one foot while falling back, and perfectly strumming out a brilliant tune. This picture exemplifies who he is. He does a little bit of everything everywhere. He writes and produces music for big artist like Taylor Swift, The Chicks, Lorde, and The 1975. He produces major motion picture soundtracks like Minions: The Rise of Gru. All while playing in bands like Fun. and Blea

    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
