Keegan’s Best Photos of 2013

2013 was an awesome year for my photography. I had some chances to explore astrophotography, I made some significant modifications to my gear, and I learned a lot about perfecting the light sources for my macro work. Here is a summary of my 20 or so best shots from the year.

All photos taken with my Canon 5dII. Macro shots with my Canon mpe-65 with the mt-24EX flash, and wide angle shots were taken with my Canon 24-70mmL.

Choosing my best and favorite photo from 2013 was tough. Since macro and spiders are my real passion, I had to go with these from my awesome day at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens




The weather of 2013 was largely crappy, so I didn’t get out with my telescopes but a few times. I did manage to snap this photo of M42, the Orion Nebula.

I got a few great photos of the Norfolk Skyline this year as well. Here is my favorite, taken in July.


I spent a weekend at Cumberland Island, one of my favorite places. The trees there are amazing, especially in the early morning sun.


I also started a few studio based macro projects. I’ve only published one, but I have two ideas to work on this winter.

I did a few timelapses as well. Here’s one of a spider building a web at Cumberland Island.

And here’s one of Jupiter, Orion, and Sirius rising from Medoc State Park in NC.

And the rest here are a mixture of my favorites. Enjoy!
