Credit Where It Is Due

Credit Where It is Due

I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.

Mother and Sons

A friend asked me to do some work for her. 
I spent a couple of hours at her place, visiting and snapping the shutter.
This was one of the images, which I have posted with her permission.

Joy, you captured pure human joy here Dimple. Great shot.

The reason I used AdoramaPix in the first place is because they got the best reviews. Then again I already had an Adorama account. The sale is a good one. $8.99 for a $23.95 (or maybe it was $24.95 book is a steal). The sale price expires 8/10.

The hardest part of making a book is choosing and formatting the photos. LOL

SING A SONG OF SHADOWS

Sing a song of shadows
Taller than a tree!
Sing a song of shadows
Wider than the sea!
Sing a song of shadows
Dancing in the sun!
Sing a song of shadows—
Day is almost done!

This is a beautiful portrait - the B&W is wonderful as it is so evocative, with such feeling. I see members of a family together in a spirit of true love, and they enjoy the time together. A wonderful post!

There is something so appealing about black & white photography.

You snapped this just at the right moment!

Spontaneity off the scale!

Awesome family shot. Well done.

DUTA said...

This picture is warming one's heart. The three look like happy friends enjoying some gadget.

Genie said...

I have only done this onetime, and I really did feel the pressure to at least come up with one good shot. Think I need a lot more practice before I try it again. Your family shot is beautiful. The expressions you were able to capture on their faces are wonderful. i know your friend must have been very pleased. G

EG Wow said...

You captured the look on their faces very well! They seem pleased to be looking at what I assume is a photo. :)

knitwit said...

What a beautiful, happy photo! This is why I've never taken my family for one of those portraits at Sears. They could never capture us as well as a less formal "real-life" shot like this could.

It portrays family life and the union between sons with their mother. Beautifully caught.
