Buildings And Institutions Will Not Shape Your Child’s True Potential

At What Cost Does Our Current System Of Education Come? The developed world spends billions of dollars on education and is continuously moving the goal post on what is expected from our children. Absolutely, we should challenge our children’s potential. God created us with expandable capabilities, skills, and talents. So, we need to be all that we can be (As individuals, and not machines of course). But, have we stopped to think “at what cost” does this investment come? We […]

Beauty Is In The Eyes Of The Creator. Not The Beholder.

“The color of beauty is light.” -Greg Pai Without light, there is no way to literally see beauty and there is certainly no need for photographs or photography. Light represents the fullness of all colors, visible and invisible, in the spectrum. So, why is this important? Because the “Voice of the World” wants you to believe that certain colors are more “beautiful” than others. Moreover, advertisers use our natural response to colors to shape the way we think about them […]

Even A Broken Clock Is Right Twice A Day

It is fascinating to see how people from developed societies transform physically during the course of a 24 hour day. I promise this is not the case in underdeveloped parts of the world. This a a great project and the photographer has done a great job capturing this phenomenon. Beyond the novel and creative however, maybe a deeper look should inspire us to look at the effort we budget for physical transformation and that which we set aside for spiritual. Just […]

Maya Barnes Phone Home… Not!

Maya is a 14-year-old, somewhat typical, high school student. What possibly makes her less typical is her willingness to disconnect from the digital madness that has consumed our world. Well – at least long enough to understand what she might have been missing.

I Want A Feeling

The Pinhole Photography of a Filmmaker. “What matters most to me as a photographer is not just capturing the beauty of a thing or person, but also conveying a particular feeling.” says photographer Steven Dempsey. Indeed, his mind is in the advanced stages of the creative process. “A pretty… The Pinhole Photography of a Filmmaker – The Phoblographer (blog) thumbnail courtesy of thephoblographer.com

You Have A “Whole” In Your Head

This photo is called “Gimme A Kiss” and it depicts man’s fascination with art. So – Not all of us are a natural-born Picasso. However, God did give all of us an amazing gift to create and be creative. Let your creative juices flow in all that you do. Don’t be satisfied leading just a “left brain” life. Even if that is your strength. God gave you a right side too. And for a reason. To support your creativity, imagination, intuition, artistic […]

Extra! Extra! Did you read the news?
God’s world is a world of infinite views;
In a contest,
I promise,
not one would lose;
But the one from above, is the one that I choose.

Engaging With Culture = More Distinct Photos

Tips from a travel photographer: Engage with the culture to capture more creative, distinctive photos. Your camera is bored, says Boston Globe columnist Christopher Muther. A lot of people take the same “dime-a-dozen” views of landmarks and scenery around the world, he continues.

Beirut’s Geometric Beauty

Going Forward From The Past

Every new year comes with the anticipation of things to come. Often, the anticipation consumes us where we forget about the prior year from which we came. Surely your life was blessed in so many ways in 2015. Surely the year had it’s challenges and trials as well. How easy it is for those painful moments and events to consume us and cause us to forget what we had and still have. Each evening during the last months of last year, […]

Where Is The City Of True Love?

Cities are such marvelous expressions of man’s ability to create. God gives us amazing gifts of engineering, craftsmanship, design, and vision. Above the enormous complexity of any city however, is its personality which comes to life when you add people and culture to the architecture. People always ask, “where is the best place you have ever traveled?” My typical response is “Everywhere!” That said, I do have different take-aways from each city and can often understand why a certain city […]

Don’t Make Waves. Photograph Them!

What were you doing when you were 25 years old? Well, I was making waves and not really observing them. However, when I got a chance to go to the ocean’s edge, I can remember the crashing sounds yielded by each wave’s immense force. Yet, I was missing the visual brilliance each wave displays as it’s individual fingerprint on the world. The shape; the spectrum of color; the reflections and diffraction of light. When we absorb photographs of these ocean phenomena, we can see the power that […]

All Children Are Born With Talents From God

So You Want To Photograph The Universe Do You…

Particularly for those of us living in light polluted cities, the universe is simply not observable in the fullness of its glory. So we must rely on others to combine their ideal locations with the necessary technical skills so we too can enjoy God’s amazing creation as if we were there ourselves. If you are one of those most fortunate, here are some tips enhance your potential. How to Photograph the Milky Way “If you live in a remote area with dark […]

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 […]

One Of God’s Greatest Gifts

Human doll. Perfect smile. Porcelain cheeks. A Beautiful child. Eyes of glass. A halo above. Made by God. Made with love.  

Always Thank God…

Using a camera is a great way to capture the awesomeness of God’s creation. But let us never forget that God’s creation extends infinitely beyond the frame of an image.

Is Life Really Better Under The Sea?

Not likely unless you are a fish. However, this recent photo contest makes a compelling case for the world down under. Most of us will never come face to face with these forms of life except through the lens of these brave photographers (who also happen to be divers).

Can A Photograph Heal?

Photography as a Healing Art Photographs have power. Creative photography allows us to see the world in new ways, to drop preconceptions, and to find focus in a busy, chaotic world. For some, photography is an art; for others, a job or a hobby. But there’s another, rapidly expanding avenue for camera work – photography as therapy. “Photography is a tool for meditation, mindfulness and creative living. Now the emerging field of phototherapy embraces the power of making and viewing […]

Only God!

Culture Diversity of culture is God’s gift to humanity. It is just one of the many magnificent threads of God’s tapestry called Creation.

We Don’t Want to Tell People…

God gave us a brilliant mind to think for ourselves and not simply follow a system by default. But that requires time, effort, and most of all, God’s wisdom. Thinking, discovering, and creating are the three worst things to outsource, and doing so is a fatal mistake.

Have You Seen Nature’s Waterfall Of Colors?

“The Aurora Borealis , or Northern Lights, is one of nature’s most spectacular light displays. Ever changing, they will intrigue anyone who is lucky to catch them night after night. At no other time of year can we drive through city and country alike and feel the warmth that lights add to our lives. No matter how awesome our light displays are though, nothing can compare with one of the most amazing shows nature has to offer; the Aurora Borealis, or […]

All Are Welcome Here

While so many in the world seek out reasons to divide, hate and war against one another, a group of brave people, from different faiths, yet with similar hearts, are seeking to coexist. Not only peacefully, but cooperatively. “A mosque, a church and a synagogue go up on the site of an old Jewish country club. It sounds like the setup to a joke — but it’s not. It’s actually happening in Omaha, Neb. The Tri-Faith Initiative may be the first place […]
