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.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park Little River in Black and White
This photo was taken with my 6x7 Pentax using a tripod. Fuji chrome 50 film was used with a 50mm lens set at f-22 with a exposure of 2 seconds. With this camera I always had to lock up the mirror in order to keep the image sharp. I scanned the transparence then used photoshop to convert the image to a black and white by using only the green channel. I then converted the image back to RGB so I could add a warm red tint to the image. The 6 x 7 format made it possible to go very large on prints. This image was displayed at Deer Park Inn for about a year and was sold at galleries in Asheville North Carolina.
