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.

Man Reading Newspaper in Sculpture Garden at Market Square Knoxville
One of the best ways to simplify a subject is by using shallow depth of field. In this image of the newspaper reader I used a 200 mm lens set at f-2.8. Notice how the out of focus background helps the subject to stand out from a complex background. I also used a tripod to steady the camera to obtain a sharp image. Note: I will be teaching another class in digital photography. Here is a link for details on this class.LINK FOR CLASS.LynnFreeny.com
