Since I don’t think we’ve ever done a documentary themed assignment before, I got excited when Nature Friend Magazine had the idea to publish photo essays of The Month of March in your corner of the world! A demonstration video had to be filmed before March began, so I chose 7 days near the end […]

My Search for Glowing Scenery Photos
Yes! A landscape photography assignment. My favorite! But the weather put an interesting twist on my plans as I set out to find what I was looking for before the deadline. I had so much fun exploring with the Ferrells. I took pictures of all sorts of random things! Don’t you just love this photo?! […]
Three Photographers on a Photo Challenge!
Months ago, an great idea was suggested. Over the New Year, we acted upon it! I found myself walking down a quaint little street lined with houses headed to a special destination with friends in Connecticut. Golden hour was just around the corner, and the three of us photographers took advantage of the unique opportunity […]
Nothing Short of a Miracle!
I’ve been filming and photographing photo assignments every month for the past 4 years, and what happened while preparing this month’s assignment, the 12th and final one of the year, had never happened before! It was a sort of miracle, you might say, how we were able to photograph it. Let me show you what […]
On Assignment: Communion Bread & Cup
With no grape juice in the refrigerator, can you guess what I used as a substitute? I had a lot of fun with this month’s real-life photo assignment, Communion Bread and Cup! This assignment is a great opportunity to get some practice in still-life photography! The first still-life shots I took were simple items against […]
On Assignment: Training the Next Generation
If you have been doing any of the recent monthly photo assignments, this new one will be quite easy. It’s not too different than some of the recent assignments we’ve done, but with my schedule being packed with so many end-of-convention-season things, I found it quite challenging to find the right situation with suitable subjects […]
On Assignment: Personal Quiet Time
Summertime is such a great time for taking pictures! The warm weather. The lush foliage (depending on where you live ). The abundance of backyard wildlife. The late sunsets. The family vacations. There are so many things to take pictures of! As we enjoy taking pictures of the things we love, let’s take some time […]
On Assignment: Sharing the Gospel
When I found out that this next Lenspiration Shoot to Serve photo assignment was “Sharing the Gospel”, a lot of different ideas for what to shoot started coming to mind! A tract sitting with a tip on a table in a restaurant. A closeup of a Bible on the knee of someone in a living […]
On Assignment: The Intricacy of God’s Creation
There are several ways you can do macro photography on a budget, but for this assignment I explored one way I had never tried before! It’s true that flipping the lens isn’t the sharpest way to create macro photos. For starters, macro photography has such an incredibly shallow depth of field. To hold both the […]
Patriotic Photos…in the Snow?
I was so excited when Pennsylvania State Representative Andrew Lewis said we could do a photo assignment for him! This could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! And as such, not even a snowy day could keep me from shooting (or at least attempting to shoot!) some very specific, 4th-of-July-looking photos! When I got the details for […]
