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.

Jellyfish in the Mountains?
This is not the normal wildlife of the Southern Appalachian, but that is where I found these strange creatures. Before you call the University of Tennessee to report a new species in the mountains, I must confess I got this picture at Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg Tennessee. I set the camera at 400 ISO to take advantage of the existing light. When shooting through glass it is always better to avoid flash photography. Setting the camera on a higher ISO enabled me to set a fast enough shutter speed to stop the movement of the jellyfish. LynnFreeny.com
