The Slow Spring

The Slow Spring

I don’t know about you, but this almost feels like we’re going to have a year without a summer!  The flowers and blooms though are trying to come out and enjoy the sun.  Just a quick shot from the yard in the fading spring light this weekend.  These flowers are very graceful for a day at most, then they get twisted, and lose a lot of their appeal.  So if I want a shot of them, I need to photograph them as soon as they open.  So the lesson of the day is to take the shot now, because you never know if it will be there tomorrow.

Good lesson for life as well.

P.S. Fuji X-E1 with 60mm close up lens.  (This is not a true macro as it will only do 2:1, not the full 1:1 a traditional macro will obtain)

Less is more.

Color and Chrome

Out at Old Car City not all is lost in terms of color!  I wanted to combine the chrome and color for a few shots, and this was my favorite if the bunch.  This is one of the few I set up that was not HDR.   The image just came out better is way.   Lesson for the day is that sometimes less is more!

I think that was an important part for me to digest last night at the movie.  God really does give us what we need for anything he expects of us. While we may always want more skills, riches, or luck….he equipped us with just what we need. So just work with it and trust in him!

Ok I’ll admit I’m working on the last part myself! That is my cross to bear.

A quick post for today.  I love photojournalism.  In this genre I find that the key to a photo to to capture the story and emotion in one frame.

It is a great challenge to have!

If you want to see some great photojournalism check my friend Fran Ruchalski out!  He is a great artist and photojournalist!  Here is his webpage!  Fran Ruchalski

Well this is my son at the closing concert of an orchestra one day intensive.  He was intense as they played their patriotic songs and those of God’s glorious nature!

The shot was as captured in camera.  One advantage of my Fujifilm camera is that the film simulation modes have some easy customization features.  As a result putting a curve into the photo, and then using EV compensation eyeballed through the Electronic Viewfinder shortens my time in post on most family shots…and many jobs.

God’s Not Dead!

If you have not yet seen the movie, I suggest you do!

It lets you know you are not alone in your faith and love for God.  In today’s day and age, that is a message we all need to hear whenever possible.

The Holy Spirit sent a message, and the movie makers did their best to let God’s word sing.

Do to subject matter I would take your children high school and up.  It would be a great conversation starter, so they can understand what challenges awaits their faith outside your home’s protective bubble (well maybe they are facing it is in public school already…)

Here is a link to the website so you can find out more, and a movie house playing it!   God’s Not Dead
