I enjoyed thinking about this project and semi preparing for it. I decided to try to illustrate Matthew 4:4 with the theme of bread. I tried to get it looking as 1st century as I knew how. The bread is a recipe I found called focaccia bread which originated around the 5th or 6th century A. D. . It’s not the 1st century, but its kind of close. 🙂 My younger brother and I went rock hunting in our creek for a nice flat rock plater. It was fun. I’m curious to hear what you think.June 27, 2020 at 4:00 pm #51558
I enjoyed this photo assignment. I recently learned that roses have the fibonacci numbers incorporated into their design, which I find incredible. I also learned during this assignment just how little I really know about my camera.
I was having a hard time getting the flower to be tack sharp and the background to be a smooth blur. My Camera is a Canon Rebel T6, so I think there must be some way to get it go below F4.5, but I haven’t figured it out yet. The lens I used said, “Macro 0.25m/0.8ft”, but I couldn’t get the Aperture needle to go below F4.5.April 21, 2020 at 5:29 pm #50259
I think I was pleased with the photos I took overall, but I am not sure what to do about the shadows in the background. Pretty much all of our morning sun comes through the trees, so I’m not sure what I would have done other wise. I am interested to hear what you think and if you have some suggestions or tips.
I also had a question concerning how many photos to take in a typical Lenspiration assignment. I know the amount of photos from a photo shoot will change considerably depending on the subject. In the past I have taken a very large quantity of photos and then deleted most of the photos choosing somewhere from 2 to 10 photos as my product. About how many photos should I take for a typical Lenspiration assignment, before narrowing down and choosing the few I want to keep? Thank you again for teaching photography!April 21, 2020 at 5:06 pm #50244
I have always enjoyed the the beauty of the light of the morning sun. Being outside, surrounded with the morning sun, and photographing honey was so much fun. I really enjoyed this assignment. It seems to me that the element of transparency and yet evident density of honey is what illustrates the seeming purity of the honey. The Word of God is so comprehensible and yet so unmeasurably profound. It feeds our hungry souls and lightens our eyes such as Jonathan experienced with physical honey in 1 Samuel 14:27-29.

I really enjoyed shooting this assignment. I had some trouble with making the silver look pure. I seems a bit more black than silver. What should I have done to make it more silvery?February 4, 2020 at 5:25 pm #48534February 4, 2020 at 5:20 pm #48532
When I went out to take this photo shoot, I had my little brothers with me and it was 15 degrees, so I didm’t take as much time as I might have otherwise. It was in the morning, and I had a hard time with deep shadows and glaring sun. Do you have any tips with how to deal with sharp/deep shadows outdoors?December 2, 2019 at 7:31 pm #47014December 2, 2019 at 7:28 pm #47012August 10, 2019 at 10:10 pm #42860
