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.
Over the weekend I started walking around my yard with my camera in tow. The sun was too bright to take pictures. The colors seemed to be washed out. I decided to get shots of the harsh sunlight through the flower making the bloom a kind of light souce. Even in bad light don't give up. Look for dfferent angles of view.
I love tall glass building because they are shinny and flashy. Well what I am really trying to said is how wonderful glass reflects. Moving in very close to this structure at a low angle I was able to show the extreme height as it reached toward the sky like a tree trying to find the sun . Distortion is what I was trying to get by moving in close.
Somtimes the light is just right. This image of a chocolate lab had the help of a cloudy sky. On a cloudy day the sun becomes this wonderful large light source that creates light that looks very much like studio lighting. With this even light the shadow details are incredable. I found this dog in the back of a truck on Gay Street in Downtown Knoxville. Notice the catch light (white refletion) in the dog 's eye. This same lighting can be duplicated in a studio using one large soft box overhead .
