This is a photo blog of self expression. All the images I post are self assignments driven by the need for more creativity in my life. This is my escape from the everyday shooting as a professional photographer.

Appalachian Dulcimer Maker
The Appalachian Mountains have a rich tradition in music. I wanted to capture the color of autumn along with the long tradition of craftsmanship in the Southern Appalachians. Porch light is very similar to window light. The nice even light gives detail to the dulcimer and the player. This is important because this is Mike Clemmerof Townsend Tennessee one of the world's best mountain dulcimer makers. His instruments are played all over the world because of the beautiful tones they produce along with unmatched workmanship. The reflecting fall colors seem to match the hue of the dulcimer in Mike's lap.LynnFreeny.com
