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.

Clouds Over Harden Valley Knoxville
When using long lens you can actually compact visual information. In this image that I took during myBasic Photography Classat 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.
