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.

Battle Reenactment at Fort Loudon Tennessee
Reenactments are the closest thing to a time machine especially when shooting with a camera. I used a 300mm lens to get a close portrait of this soldier with his vintage spectacle. A close crop with the camera along with shallow depth of field (putting the background out of focus) helped to simplify the composition. Simplifying an image helps the viewer focus on the subject.
