David Leaser is using new technology and special techniques to capture God’s amazing handiwork embedded in all of nature. His images draw us closer to the detail and color we often miss for many reasons. Without a doubt, with the right intent, innovation and technology can enhance our appreciation for God’s creation.
It’s one thing to use a macro lens on a camera to capture the smallest details of flora and fauna.
Then there’s what David Leaser does, which is less like photography than it is like an MRI image. It’s called focus stacking and involves an array of photographic equipment that far exceeds the usual single-lens reflex camera equipped with a macro lens.
“I wanted to elevate these little tiny flowers into significance, give people a different perspective,” he said.”
And that he does. He also seeks to “have his works lower viewers’ blood pressure and cause them to smile.” I believe that this is exactly why God created such natural beauty on this earth. I pray we all seek ways to draw closer to God’s creation. The result – We draw closer to God.
