This week’s Fan Photo comes from Tim Thurman of Whitmore Lake, Michigan. He tells us:
I wanted more than the sunset setting on the Lighthouse, I needed something to add a little bit of composition. I walked a few trails and found this old dead tree trunk. After a few shots, I found the foreground too dark and background too light. I ran back to my Jeep to get the SpeedLites. I played with many different off camera shots. Firing both on and off camera flashes produced this shot.

Lens: Sigma 10-20mm 1:4-5:6 DC HSM

I have always had a passion photography. I have had my share of Polaroid cameras when I was a child and Point and Shoots up to a few years ago. I finally broke down and bought my first DSLR 3 years now I own three!. It is mainly a hobby. First and foremost I have fun. And in the end, for me, that is what it is all about. I am 41, I live in Whitmore Lake, MI. I am a divorced father of two beautiful girls, who are always welcome to pose for me and use any of my gear. I have a wonderful Fiancé who also enjoys shooting pictures. We plan most everything we do to involve some type of photography.
