Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.

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 […]

Rare Photos of Tribe Spur Urgent Pleas to Protect It

When The World Goes Low…

What Is True Joy? Doing well and doing good not only go together, but are among the secret ingredients of true joy. Not the joy that comes from graduating from college, landing your first job, getting married, having a child, buying your dream car or home, or retirement. Those things are joyful, but they are also fleeting. Their elation will last for a time and will undoubtedly be interrupted by life’s unfortunate circumstances. However, true joy gives us the strength to look […]

When Does An “Ad” Subtract? When It Divides Instead Of Multiplies Of Course…

I cannot remember a time when the culture of advertising was truly inclusive (or the media for that matter). You would think that advertisers selling a product or service would want to appeal to the largest possible audience of potential customers. “Not just the perfect ones.” If I am selling soap, why would I only want to sell it to people who looked or acted like me? When advertisers choose certain “types” of people to represent their product and intentionally exclude others, […]

The World According To The World. A Frightening Look.

Whatever belief system you subscribe to, I think most of us can agree that civilization is becoming increasingly self-destructive. I suppose we may have been more barbaric in the distant past (and that may be debatable). Yet, has man’s creation of increasingly complex systems including government, finance & economics, health & medicine, organized religion, education, agriculture, commerce, technology, science, communications, media, and transportation, promoted progress for the human race? Is progress leaving anyone behind? Are we eradicating sickness and poverty; improving the quality, […]

The Beauty Is In The Details; Not The Devil

We are in constant pursuit of the fountain of youth and all things new. When something gets old enough, we discard, retire, or replace it. When something gets worn enough, we polish, enhance, or renovate it. My concern is that we may be losing an appreciation for the precious relics of this earth and moreover, the beauty and richness that resides in age itself. Photographer Beth Moon successfully uses special techniques to accentuate the age of the world’s oldest trees. One such technique involves […]

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.

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 […]
