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.
This image was shot on a grey day with a cold wind coming off the lake. It seemed to be a perfect setting for black and white photography. I used a 15mm lens placed very close to the ground to capture the weather wore rocks with large cracks pointing the direction of the walkers.
I decided to go out in my back yard to get some snow pictures in the dark. I just shot these a few min. ago. Here is how I set my camera : manual at ISO 1000 1 second f-3.5 with the on camera flash on. The flash was set at rear shutter which means the flash go off at the end of the exposure. Also the white balance was set on auto. The orange sky is from the street lights. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Out of all of the Christmas programs to see this is at the top of my list of can not miss! It is also a great opportunity to capture images of dancers. The lighting and overall production is second to none in the Knoxville area. I sat on the front row to one side in order to get this angle. The camera was on maual with the white balance set on tugsten. I used a 100mm lens at f-2.8 at 1/4 with ISO 200. The slower shutter speed eabled me to capture the motion of the dancers.
