I decided to make our trip to the grocery store more entertaining by taking head shots of Gridley representing the seven deadly sins.

A tribute to Corey Bienert.

I'm expecting some criticism for this. I don't know how you did it, man! I guess my white balance was off.

Thanks Billy for letting me take a million pictures of you.

Made way too much pasta.

Got a chance to take some pictures in the studio of Corey and Margaret. These guys are great friends and I'm glad to have them in my life.

It's funny how Corey is usually the one taking pictures of me, but now the roles have been reversed. I know he'll be critiquing these pictures extra closely.

I still have a lot to learn about lighting... it's hard when your subjects move!

There is a new URL for this blog so hopefully that doesn't confuse any of my devoted followers...

Tried out this tilt photography effect on photoshop of. I didn't take the picture, just pulled it off of google, but I definitely want to do this more.

These are pictures of my model from critique today. The project was to explore the idea of terminating space in "wall" through the formal concept of spine.

7 February

(itunes: Hillsong United- From the Inside Out)

I went on the mens retreat this weekend. It's amazing to see the Spirit just tear down walls. I didn't really want to go due to a ton of homework assigned over the weekend, but I knew it was something God wanted me to be at. The message was about mainly about where we find our identity; whether in physical appearance, performance, prosperity, popularity, or pain; and how that those things are not our true identity in Christ. God really moved me to give up my hold on my worldly identity, and strengthen my relationship with him so that I can change my mindset of who I am. I also had an opportunity to pray over a few people, something I've never done before. It was probably one of the most intimate experiences I've had with the Holy Spirit. There are so many ways to worship that I've just chosen not to do because they seem too extreme for my western christianity upbringing. I'm changing that because God deserves more than my weak idea of praise.

I've lost two days of sleep over my portfolio, but it's finally done. I thought it was going to turn out terrible because I couldn't get the blacks of my images to match the background black in indesign. Basically the only thing I could do was pray... God is good. It turned out soooo much better than I thought possible.
