This week’s theme was close-up or macro. I do not own a macro…yet. It is the next item on my “prioritized purchased list”. But I saw a blog post by one of our own blog circle ladies a little while back about “reverse lens macro” and decided that I wanted to try it out. If you are not familiar with it please check out Jenn’s post on her blog when you get a chance. I also did a little more reading about it on the internet (isn’t internet a wonderful thing!?). It pretty much is as simple as taking off your lens turning it around and while you hand hold it to your camera body you press the shutter. But there are somethings you have to consider. Since you don’t have a lens attached you have no control of the aperture. Some of my images were REALLY bright but I could still control the amount of light hitting the sensor with my shutter speed and ISO. The other element to watch out for is light leaks. Since your lens is not attached to the camera body the chance for light to get to the sensor is greater…but that might look cool in some instances. Read the rest of this entry »
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
Mom’s are the best. We wouldn’t be who we are without them. Heck, we wouldn’t BE with out them! LOL! I love my mom and wish I had more images with her and I…and my brother and sister. I always strive to capture these moments for others but need to remember take more pictures WITH my boys so that when they are older they will have the images for years to come. So thank you to the families that came out for entrusting your photography to me. It is so important to value these keepsakes not just for you but also for your children!

Okay so this week’s theme was “No Faces”…but hey, if you have no head you have no face right?
So here is my theme shot this week. :)
Now “head” on over (I crack myself up) to my friend Miss Jane’s blog and see how she “faced” the theme this week (I can’t stand it, sorry!). :)
Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
Last year I started a devotion called Prosper: A 40 Day Prayer Journey to Seek God’s Will for Your Photography Business by professional photographer Scarlett Lillian. I finished it but never did complete the very first task it challenged me to do on day one…to write a blog post about my heart for God. So now it is almost a year later and I have decided that I need to revisit it. Since the last time I completed Prosper we have moved to a new state and I am starting my business from scratch again it seems. New locations to find and new clients to photograph…however, being a military family all this starting over is not new to me. So now here I am ready to share my heart. It has been put on my heart as a reminder that it is not only clients that I will be working with but other photographers and vendors. So I have decided to break this up into two parts even though they both deal with the same basic premise, love and serving. This week I really want to speak to my clients and potential clients. Next week I would like the chance to speak to my colleagues. So please feel free to comment below on your thoughts or what maybe is being spoken to your heart after reading this. You can also email me if you would like to keep it more personal.
