It was quite convenient that the current real-life Lenspiration Photo Assignment, Made In His Image, landed on the holidays! With Robert & Kendalyn and their family in town, I had ample opportunities to shoot it. However, not every opportunity turned out as I expected…. I really liked that first location. The brown, textured curtains and […]

On Assignment: Autumn Artwork Reference Photo
Had a fun time shooting for the latest Lenspiration assignment, Autumn Artwork Reference Photo. 🙂 And here are my photos from the excursion. Not sure exactly how well they represent the sketches I was supposed to be copying, but hey, at least the pictures turned out kinda nice. 🙂
Pictures from the Photography Field Day in Arkansas!
After most of my photography events were canceled earlier in the year, it was great to get out and do a workshop again in August! The Photography Field Day was held in the Ozark Mountains along the Buffalo River in Arkansas. I wouldn’t have been exploring this part of the country if I hadn’t been […]
Homeschooling Photo Shoot!
If your family already does homeschooling, this month’s photo assignment should be easy! To make it more challenging for me, I focused on lighting and doing what I could to get it just right…. While bounce flash certainly is better than direct flash or no flash at all when photographing not-so-well-lit areas, I feel like […]
Searching for Perfect Order in Nature!
According to the details for the current assignment, perfect order in nature could also mean perfect order in man-made landscapes, so off I went looking for symmetrical gardens and manicured lawns at the closest botanical garden I could find! Oh what a surprise I was in for! It was different being on a time-crunch too. […]

Invisible Enemies Worse Than COVID-19
It’s 2020. The year the world found out how vulnerable it actually was. An invisible enemy has entered our world, and we are all taking extraordinary precaution against it. Suddenly, we are willing to endure incredible sacrifice and inconvenience for the sake of ourselves and others. Who would have thought the handshake would be shunned […]
On Assignment: In The Danger Zone
It’s time to take some pictures for the missionaries in Europe again! This time, we’re going for a spring-time theme. And illustrating Psalm 119:103, “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” If you decide to go out and take pictures of honey bees like I did, beware. […]
More Than Just a Picture of a Blue Bird
I had an idea of what I wanted to take pictures of for this month’s Lenspiration Photo Assignment, but I had to patiently wait for the right timing. It’s interesting how perfectly things worked out! Almost. Now let me show you the photos I took in the video! Keep in mind that these are my […]
When What You’re Looking For Doesn’t Exist
Photographing for the new Lenspiration photo assignment turned out much better than I expected! Isn’t it great that ideas from sources outside of yourself are often what help you find exactly what you could not find by yourself? I think it’s interesting how, without my intending it, this video actually illustrated my own personal pursuit of purity. Every […]
