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.
Light is what photography is all about. Without it nothing can be recorded. The warm daylight seemed to welcome visitors to the old historical Cabin built when Abraham Lincoln was still practicing law. The cabin is located in the Little Greenbriar area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I used a 17mm lens set at f-5.6 with a shutter 1/60.
I love wet weather at night. This was shot during a night field trip with my photography class from Pellissippi State. Rain is ok as long as you are prepared for it. I use a big golf umbrella with my camera mounted to a tripod. This way things stay dry and I get interesting images of reflections caused by the rain. This photo was shot across from the Palace Theater. With my camera on a tripod I was able to use a exposure of 1/2 a second at f-11 at ISO 200. The white balance was set for tungsten light. The one with the little light bulb sympol .
I got a shot through Roy's Record Shop window capturing a cardboard cut out of George Strait with a reflection of the Capitol Theater. I used a tripod with a 8 second exposure on f-11. I used a flashlight during the exposure to paint light on George.
