Teaching Breaststroke at the University of Tennessee

Breaststroker Brad Craig is surrounded by swimmers' legs at UT. Repeated shapes of legs and lane rope with the effect of a long lens (200mm) compacting information (lane ropes in background seem to be very close together)  helps to make an interesting image.

Swim Photo Stops action

What I like about sports photography is you capture something not seen normally as you watch. In this image high shutter speed stopped the action to reveal a roaring moment.

View From Maryville College Bridge

I used a tripod on this one. It was a 3 second exposure which recorded the taillights and headlights of traffic on Lamar Alexander Parkway. The long exposure captured the light trails while leaving the cars  invisible. The camera's white balance was set on tungsten and the ISO was 200. 

Maryville College Walking Bridge in the Moon Light

In the fall of last year I took my photography class on a field trip through Maryville. This image was made on the Maryville College Bridge over Lamar Alexander Parkway. I used a tripod with a 15 second exposure which gave me enough time to paint the bridge with a flash light. I set the camera at ISO 200 and used the tungsten setting for white balance.

More Ice in Maryville

With tripod umbrella I shot this image with the camera set on f-22 at 30 sec. at ISO 100. I used a flash light to paint light on the ice coated limbs closest to the camera.

Ice Rains Down on Maryville

I shot some ice covered trees tonight lit by the street lights of  Maryville College.I mounted my camera  to a tripod and used an umbrella to stay  dry. I set my white balance using a white sheet of paper.My camera was set on manual. Exposure information - f-9  shutter speed 10 sec. 100 ISO. The circle shaped lens flare in the upper right hand corner was caused by rain drops on the front of the lens (a happy accident).
