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.

Soup and Pumpkin Party
I think the reason you learn the rules of photography is so you can find ways to break those rule in order to produce interesting images. The way I broke the rules on this image was by moving the camera during the exposure. I used an exposure of 2 seconds to capture the light from the candles in the jack-o-lantern as I moved the camera. I did not use a flash but let the other parents taking pictures help light my image with their flashes. Exposure information- f-stop 5.6 shutter speed 2 seconds White Balance Day Light at ISO 400 with flash provided by other cameras on the scene.
