New Home for EHW
Here is an invite to the new home of EHW Photography!
The new website is the result of several months of discernment on where this photographic and life journey is taking my misson, artistic interests, and business opportunities. So please let me take the opportunity to explain what you see before you!
Last year when I started this business I had big dreams of what I could do with it. I wanted to understand how the real world works for dinner, pay for my photography habit, give my children a workplace example they could participate in as part of homeschooling, and also express my joy in capturing God’s Glory in our daily lives! As you could expect the real job interfered here, general life requirements interfered there, and pretty soon I realized how hard it would be to do anything I dreamed of a few months earlier!
On the really good side I learned people liked my work more than disliked. I just needed to give them a product they could either visualize on their home or use right away. My children did a wonderful job of introducing themselves to potential clients, and helping me with various jobs at the market. One even froze his fingers to the bone helping me get some of this year’s selections! This taught me volumes, volumes I’d never learn standing on the sidelines.. For what it is worth, everything I learned merely made me realize how much more I need to learn in all areas of my craft!
I also learned a lot about the technology and services available to business today. Unfortunately for this part time owner, some the of really great solutions didn’t fit my model. So after a mountain of research and fiddling I came up with a combination of Squarespace, Smugmug, Square Market, and Shootproof to make my work come to life. That is why I will slowly move away from my WordPress site to this new one for all my work.
So EHW Photography is ready and willing to help you. I can help you decorate, learn a few lessons about camera operations, composition, editing photos, and even photograph your car if you’d like! Most of all though I want to help you Capture His Glory in Life!
The new blog is at www.capturinghisglory.com , in a few days www.ehwphotography.com will redirect over to that site as well!
God Bless You!
I am building a new website at www.capturing his glory.com. Please check out the site!
While editing a number of photos recently I noted the overwhelming power of the bright sun to wipe out the micro contrast in a photo. When the contrast is gone because it is to bright, everything becomes smoother. In many cases, if you are aiming for bringing texture into the photo it invites disaster for your goals.
I personally like texture in most of my photos, because it brings out interesting details which often add to the story of the item or person who is your subject. Now I’ll go into high key and low key subjects as well one day, but for now lets look at having a stated goal of texture in the photo…as it relates to life.
I meet many people (including the guy I see in the mirror shaving) who sometimes does not take advantage so such moments. I would tend to say that if you find life a little bland, or too smooth maybe you are glossing over the interesting parts. Maybe you need to take time, like I did in this photo, to add some contrast back in to the midtones.
Instead of texting a quick message to your sister, maybe you should just pick up the phone and talk. Instead of snippets and tweets you could explore the texture of life with heartfelt conversation and sharing of life experiences.
Now imagine if we did the same thing when examining your spiritual life!
Oh riches and textures we would find would number as the stars as we drew closer to the Lord!
P.S. Fujifilm X-T1 with 56mm in Savannah, Georgia.
Quick image from Savannah, Georgia. Weather is getting warm here, but that also means some long lovely evenings to enjoy with a camera!
I am testing a rented Fujifilm X-T1 this week, and one of the premier lenses in the Fujifilm lineup…the 56mm F1.2. Both are really incredible pieces of technology. My first thoughts on the equipment are that the Fujifilm processes information and works faster in every way. As a result the camera does not get in your way as you think and compose. Due to some button placement issues it is not as fast as a true DLSR, but it is quick to work once you create your own customized workflow.
The 56mm, is well really beyond description nice. I’ve shot lovely portraits, detailed photos of architecture, and lovely low light renditions of bright neon displays. Incredible!
OK! Yes if you want to join Fujifilm and had any doubts from a previous experiment with it…you can rest assured this one is the one that will on image quality and responsiveness will fit the bill for about 90-95% of all photographers needs.
Both photos processed in Nik for effect. I’ll have others later!
