Symmetrical Trees

20181201-dscf8886There is a cluster of trees near the Tennessee River on Route 60 that always catches my eye.  The trees are perfectly aligned and symmetrical.  As you can see, ‘trees’ are a regularly subject that I enjoy shooting.  Fuji XH1 | ƒ/4 | 1/60 | 20.1mm | ISO200 | Project 1:Black & White |

Tree Island

20190101-dscf1322On New Year’s Day, we went for a hike at Fall Creek Falls State Park.  I switched the camera so that I only saw and shot photos in black and white.  In doing so, I found myself drawn to textures and contrasts rather than colors.  I got this great image of ‘tree island’ along the way.  Fuji XH1 | ƒ/18 | 1/80 | 20.1mm | ISO400 | Project 1: Black & White |




The Entrance

20181224-DSCF0439Happy New Year!  Many months ago, I committed myself to completing quarterly projects in 2019 (Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sept, Oct-Dec).  First up (Project 1) is a focus on black and white photography with the goal of learning about and shooting in black and white.  Here’s a photo from the entrance to a park near where I live.  Fuji XH1 | ƒ/4.5 | 1/10 | 36.6mm | ISO1000 | Project 1 – black & white |
