Is Photography A Distraction During Devotions? Here’s What To Do About It

Is photography sometimes a distraction during your devotions?

If you’re like me, you like to have your devotions outside…you know, on the porch or in the woods or in some quiet spot around your house. Especially when it’s a warm, summer morning when it’s still early and the sun is just getting’ up? Ahh! A very special time to meet personally with the Creator.

Problem is, that’s the ideal time for pictures too. Too many times I’ve started on a prayer walk only to see a sunrise that was just so beautiful that I had to run inside, grab my camera, and shoot away until it was too late to realize all my time for devotions had disappeared. Does this mean I should promise myself NEVER to take a picture again during my devotions?! Well, not necessarily…

In the latest Photography Moment on Episode on Sharpening Character’s Episode #65, we take a look at this fix we photographers get ourselves into, and provide some practical tips that I hope will help us all be able to more successfully harmonize photography with our devotions.
