Background July in Memphis, Tennessee it is hot. It doesn’t ever seem to cool down. The days a long the sun rises early and sets late. The humidity is feels like it is 100%, but in actuality it is about 80%. So hot and humid in fact, my lens instantly has condensation on it after coming from the air conditioning at home and car into the outside. I think there is a lesson to learn there about keeping your camera in the environment you will be shooting in a bit ahead of the shoot, but that is a different story for a different time. I am ready to capture images of these Memphis Sunflowers. Memphis has hundreds of acres public parks and space. There are a few area that are filled with Sunflowers that are there for the public to enjoy, taking pictures of, etc. Amateur and professional photographers are usually all over the fields taking portraits first thing in the morning and from 5 PM until there is no more light. All of these are planned and staged shots.
