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.

Leaf Close up
I was walking through my yard looking for interesting things that were showing the signs of fall. With my Sigma SLR mounted on a tripod with an 80 to 300 zoom lens, I started looking at leaves on the trees. The absence of wind was a plus because it made it possible for 1/2 sec exposure to be made of this leaf. The sky, deep blue didn't hurt either giving me a perfect background. I also positioned my view so sun light would actually shine through the leaf making the leaf like a light source revealing more detail on the surface. LynnFreeny.com
