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.

A Warm Day in January
I went to the Greenbelt Park in Maryville Tennessee today with camera in tow. It was so warm I thought it might be the first day of spring. I started shooting as the sun was getting low in the sky. Everywhere I looked was interesting because of the light. As I was walking through a tunnel I saw this wonderful shadow created by a little girl on a bicycle. These long shadows only happen when the sun is at a low angle close to the horizon line. I am shooting into the sun causing a rim lighting around the subject. I used the tunnel as a gobo to block the sun from the lens eliminating lens flare. LynnFreeny.com
