No “Gear”-riority Complex Here!

Unfortunately, I own a lot of high-end camera gear. Why “unfortunately?” Well – I have concluded that a substantial portion of my energy is spent on selecting and fussing with equipment. Which camera body? What lens? What settings? And then there is whatever is left for actually shooting. It just doesn’t seem to make sense sometimes. Yes – there are both advantages and fascinations associated with certain equipment. However, if at the end of the day the result of all […]

Images That Force Us To Look Into The Mirror

Selfies, advertising, and other staged photography all too often portray a false or fabricated depiction of our society. It is a no wonder that we don’t necessarily feel the immediate pressure to radically change our increasingly violent identity. Yet, images from around the world tell the true story of what we are becoming – Desensitized to violence. Understandably, who doesn’t want to live in “wonderland” like Alice, where we can shut this painful darkness out from our daily lives. However, the […]

Sibling Harmony

Too many of us have a lost or strained relationship with one or more of our siblings. These photos should inspire us to rebuild bridges of love with those whom God intentionally enjoined us with to form our family. A sibling is like an arm or a leg. They have a purpose in our lives and we need to have a relationship with them in order to find our what that purpose is. Brothers and sisters are not dispensable. God wastes nothing. […]

Photography Provides A Portal To Many Realities For Most Of Us

The power of photography extends far past simply being an extraordinary visual art. For nearly all of us, it provides the only access to the glory or horror of the many concurrent world events we would otherwise have no way to witness. I believe that more than words or film, photos can freeze a particular moment, impress it into our present conscience, and move us emotionally as no other stimuli can. The use of photography during the Civil Rights Era, the Holocaust, the many […]

Put Your Shovels Away and Let It Snow!

We can get up close and personal with the snowflake through the work of Alexey Kljatov. Get ready to be amazed! Photographer Alexey Kljatov uses quick bursts of […]
