Sun Flower in Black & White

Some of my students discovered a garden of sunflowers on our field trip in class. I shot this with a zoom lens with it set on macro. The evening light was perfect because the low angle help create good shadows on the pedals of the flower. I converted to black and white by using the red channel and I added some warm tone after returning the image the an RGB file.

Clouds Over Harden Valley Knoxville

When using long lens you can actually compact visual information. In this image that I took during my Basic Photography Class at Pellissippi State. I used a 200mm telephoto lens. This helped simplify the composition by compacting the information making everything seem closer together. If you want mountains to look taller or even clouds like these to look bigger use a long lens. I also used the red channel to convert from color to B&W which helped produce a dark sky.
