    Annie Nguyen
    Annie was born & raised in AL. She first developed her love for photography as a kid early on through her father who would often shoot film. She was completely enamored with this art growing up using her cousin's video camera to capture stills, learning Android/IPhone photography, & anything she could get her hands on to practice more including her dad's digital camera in middle school until she got her first (film) camera in high school. She enjoyed learning how to shoot with film as it was completely different from shooting with digital! It was also during this time when her father instilled more basic principles, such as composition & lighting, to help in her learning/practice as she quickly formed her own style having shoots with friends in high school. Even now, her love still continues for this art as capturing special moments is both a lifelong passion & joy of hers! She graduated from U.A.B. with a bachelor's in public health as helping others is another strong pursuit of hers.

    Annie Nguyen is available for private bookings

    Available most Sundays from 8AM until 12PM.
    Private tutoring, weddings, portraits, & events.

    My family and I were taking a walk one late afternoon in March when I saw this beautiful and unique piece of driftwood that had washed up on the beach. As I started walking closer to it, I envisioned the sunset peeking through the middle. I wanted to get close enough to see the details of the driftwood, get the sunset coming through, while still ensuring I got the beautiful clouds and seascape. Once I found the exact angle and composition I wanted, I snapped the picture! It turned out exactl

    I was lucky enough to happen to be in the right spot at the right time to capture this image! It was a gloomy day, but sometimes those days bring out the most amazing aspects and details of nature. It is rare to get the right amount of light, combined with the fog and the beauty of its surroundings! It is definitely one of my favorite photos!

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    This photo captures a serene moment in my front yard, where I lay on a blanket beneath a amazing tree. The weather was ideal, prompting me to grab my micro lens and focus on this exquisite dandelion.

    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.
