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.
I shot this during Halloween. I wanted to get a picture of Dorothy as she moved down the sidewalk along with the surrounding neighborhood. I decided to use a small pop up flash on the camera to stop the action of the walking girl but used a long exposure to capture the houses. I set the camera on manual. I used an f-stop of 5.6 with an exposure of 1 second with a 15 mm lens. The houses are showing the motion of me holding the camera for 1 second. The flash lite the girl that was in a very dark area. This is not in the manual on how to use a camera. In other words braking the rules can be fun.
