Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see."
My husband, Danny, is passionate about photography. Everywhere we travel, his camera comes with us. Because, as Danny says, "I never want to see the perfect shot and not be prepared to capture it."
But, taking that "perfect" shot doesn't mean Danny won't tweak it using Photo Shop, an essential tool for any serious photographer. He has such an eye for color, contrast, cropping, and composition. Even a so-so photo can breathe new life under his direction. It's an amazing process to witness!
Recently, Danny adds a program called Photomatix which allows him to merge three images of different exposures. The end result? I'll let the following before and after shots speak for themselves . . .
Wow! What a difference!
When Danny posts the new and improved sock photo to the Facebook page of a photography group he has joined, one person leaves this comment: "It's so amazing to take the ordinary view of socks, of all things, and turn it into art."
Danny's response? "God made the art. I simply noticed."
Are you noticing God's artwork in the world around you?
Will you pray with me?
Open the eyes of our hearts, Father, that we might see Your mighty hand in all Your works. Give us pause each day to notice Your miracles all around us. Bless all those who use their gifts and talents to Your honor and glory. Amen.
