Get Your Photo Questions Answered By a Pro: Scott Kelby Offers His Advice & Knowledge

Kelby’s back to answer your tough photo questions. 🙂 Get Your Photo Questions Answered By a Pro: Scott Kelby Offers His Advice & Knowledge Q. Re: your answer to the question about solving noise problems in the writer’s wedding shots in the February 2017 issue. You mentioned Photoshop, Lightroom, and Nik for noise reduction, but left out the best noise reduction software I’ve ever used—DxO’s OpticsPro 11. I had great night shots of lava… Link to the full Shutterbug Magazine […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Wasting Away In Consumerville

The waste generated by consumer electronics, or e-waste (primarily computers and peripherals, audio and video equipment, telephone and wireless devices, most office machines, and video game consoles), is a serious problem as you may know or will learn from the images and statistics in the Guardian article below. However, the waste is one problem and the cause of the waste is yet another. More specifically, we have allowed ourselves to become a major part of a destructive “throw-away” economy. The E-waste problem is […]

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, […]

Have A Heart

Photos are wonderful tools to force us still and insight an awareness of things we are too busy to acknowledge. God wants us to appreciate these precious little souls whose hearts are or were physically broken, but not nearly as broken God’s own for all His creation. What may appear to be a photo of scars, is really a reminder of hope. Photo of Babies With Chest Scars From Open-Heart Surgeries | POPSUGAR Moms A strong mom is using one photo to take […]

Get Hitched…

Hitch yourself to God’s purpose for your life and you will not get lost or rust.

Time For Peace

Let us acknowledge photographers who have promoted peace through their work. The world longs for peace but seems to have a bit of trouble finding it. We need more great captures like Mr. Rodwell’s to touch our hearts and encourage us to seek peace, inspire peace, and photograph peace so that it is continuously in our vision. Meet the photographer who took Time for Peace photograph – Belfast Newsletter “This photograph remains a poignant and memorable image of Northern Ireland’s fractured past. The […]

What Is Wisdom?

God knows everything and is the source of all knowledge worth having. One very important avenue to God’s wisdom is the process of discovery and exploration. Unfortunately, we have outsourced and streamlined our search for knowledge. Our schools teach us to memorize facts and not to seek them. Recorded history is fraught with biases and twisted perspectives. Our professions have little tolerance for inexperience and “on-the-job-learning” And now “the age of information” has given us a false sense of knowledge […]

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 […]

If Not For The Valleys

by Greg Pai Featured Photo Credit: highlights6 (Wood Lanes, UK) If not for the valleys I often descend I could not see the mountains o’er horizon’s bend The glory of God His Majestic style Awe filled landscape A miracle mile So far in the distance While feeling so close The landscape before me I anticipate most These dips are in God’s grips All these lands are in His hands Descents and ascents are the intent of His plans Shaping and […]

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 […]

Only God!

Peace On Earth

Thank You God For The Miracle Of Life!

There isn’t a single phase of this process that just doesn’t drop your jaw to the floor. I can remember all four of my miracles and while all were very different journeys, all equally amazing. From the moment you learn you will be a mother or father; To the preparation for the new arrival; Then comes the day God sends this little spirit down to earth and into your arms… And finally, the blessing of family. “This is the miracle […]

Up Close and Personal With Flowers

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 […]

Even If You Didn’t Sneeze…

Unfortunately, overused and under-appreciated. One way we can share God is to share Him by name in the form of a blessing. Nearly every culture, language, and faith holds such a prayer in the highest regard. But somehow, we have reduced this glorious expression of love to a reflex in response to a sneeze. I pray we all share God every day through this expression, even if someone doesn’t sneeze.

A Handwritten Note…

I have to believe that typing shortcuts into a device or simply dictating a message loses so much of the potential to communicate. Three aspects of communication are under attack  by technology. The first aspect is time. Time allows us to fully contemplate and complete our thoughts increasing the probability that our audience will understand what we are trying to communicate. Technology is an enemy of time because the more time something takes, the less effective the technology. The second […]

Yes Demi! There Is A God!

We don’t need to understand God’s plan. We just need to participate in it and put our full trust in Him. It occurred to me that if we did understand or had full knowledge of it, we would likely get in the way. Sometimes I really don't understand God's plan. I guess that's when you need to trust him the most. — Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) December 7, 2015

I Am Africa

I Am Africa (by Emone Emmanuel; Photo Credit: Greg Pai) I am Africa the brave As strong as the earth The thickness of black Is my gift from God I am Africa the wise The well of knowledge The fountain of wisdom The home of sages I am Africa the beautiful My color is my pride I am the beauty of nature I am a shining star I am Africa the black I am the home of man The first […]

Our Version Of Truth…

“Justice” should never be “Just-For-Us.” It should be for all. But it can’t be if truth is not sought. I’m afraid the function of the judicial system is to favor the “one who gets the most marbles” rather than pursing, presenting, and prosecuting the facts. If the latter were the case, why would we need two sides? Wouldn’t we all be on the same side? The side of truth?
