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.

Ice and Snow Covered Trees at Night
The other night after a dusting of snow and light rain I decided to walk the dog before bed time. As I walked the dog I noticed these delicate white lines of snow outlining every tree limb in sight. I decided to put my camera on a tripod and use a strobe off the camera to light the interesting patterns. I set my camera for a 30 second exposure and my lens at f-8. During the 30 second exposure I walked around with my flash in hand pointing and flashing 5 times at different angles to light the tree limbs. The white balance was set on daylight which helped enhance the warm light of the porch. LynnFreeny.com
