For my birthday on Wednesday, I decided to go photograph at Hornsby Bend in Austin since I hadn’t had the opportunity to photograph many dragonflies lately.  While species diversity were down and the cooler temperatures got things off to a later start, I still found a few nice subjects.  The melanistic Red-Eared Sliders are my favorite shot of the day, although I wish I had used a higher f/stop so I could have increased my depth-of-field a bit.  If you are in the Austin area, Hornsby is a great place to photograph all kinds of critters.

Welcome to Lee Hoy Photography!

Hello everyone and welcome to my website!  I want to take a minute and introduce you to the website/blog and let you know what you can expect from me.  This website will be focused on introducing people to the world of wildlife photography, macro photography (specifically focusing on dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies), and landscape photography.  While I enjoy all three, photographing birds and dragonflies tends to occupy my interest most often.

In addition. I use Adobe Lightroom 5.0 for all of my digital editing and I will be offering tips, tricks and techniques when it comes to editing your photographs.  I am located in Georgetown, Texas and while most of my photography occurs in this great state, I do, on occasion, get to travel to other destinations to photograph.  Many of us often wonder where are some great spots to photograph and I will be sharing locations as well with my reviews and recommendations.

If you are a beginner, all the better.  I love to teach folks how to make the most out of their time photographing.  I will be offering private lessons, group workshops and classes as well so stay tuned for my schedule of events beginning January 2014.  If you have any topics you would like me to address, please don’t hesitate to contact me and ask.
