Right now I have primarily fine art nature photographs but I plan on branching out soon.
Upcoming projects (hopefully): lomography, vintage editing, wood block transfers, ttv (through the viewfinder) photography
"Through the Viewfinder" might sound like a dumb way of saying "plain photography" because most every camera has a viewfinder. But this is actually the practise of taking a picture through TWO viewfinders. An older, vintage camera (often with a large viewfinder accessed from the top of the camera) is used to compose the desired image and when the image is set up, the photographer aims his/her primary camera (often digital camera) so that he/she can see the first viewfinder (and all that is sees) in the second one. This is a faster and economical way of getting your vintage prints online. The image ends up with a rough look (depending on how grimy the lens on the vintage camera is) and it can be cropped to leave a nice black border on the photo.

Photography has been a hobby since my sister got me my first camera. I didn't have a whole lot of success with it but it was fun! I can't remember actively thinking about it until I had the opportunity to take the course in high school and it fascinated me. I remember wondering how some people could try and fit photography, or art for that matter, in a box. The 'traditionalist' photographers said it had to be done one way and only one way. Portraits were a big deal. But didn't God create everything in beauty? As far as I'm concerned, you can't do one thing in this world without it being classified as an art. Construction, mining, teaching, you name it and then research it. You will find there is something beautiful in absolutely everything. God painted it, He sculpted it, He dotted the "i's" and crossed the "t's" The photographer simply puts it in a frame.

radio and prepared the way. The following are some stories of what just
one radio can do in the hands of a Mighty God:
Galcom radios in Haiti fix-tuned to 4VEH Christian radio in Cape
Haitian as part of Operation Saturation Haiti. During a recent trip to Haiti
they decided to follow the steps of just one radio to access the results of
the Galcom Go-Ye radio outreach. Here is what was reported by Gene
Bertolet, OpSat Prayer Coordinator:
Men for Missions group was to follow the steps of one radio which had
been given to an EE technician, who in turn had given the solar
powered radio to her father. After listening to Radio 4VEH for about
three months, her father accepted Jesus as his Savior. He then gave
the radio to his friend, a witch doctor. The witch doctor, too, accepted
home of her father, about 45 minutes away. As the father gave
his clear testimony others gathered around. After two hours 17
more people had accepted the Lord.

his home, there was a white cloth covered table with a Galcom solar-
powered radio in the middle of it.
his guests. Once again they heard a clear testimony of salvation. He said,
'No one comes to me as a witch doctor anymore, for they know I have
accepted Jesus.' Twelve of his thirteen children had accepted Christ,
but not his wife. As people gathered around, one of our team walked
over to the witch doctor's wife who was shelling corn. In a caring
manner he talked to her and others nearby. At the close of their time
together, five more had accepted the Lord, including the witch doctor's
wife. "One of the team members said, 'As I think about Operation
Saturation - from this one radio, 36 people accepted the Lord. What
an investment.' And this all happened within the space of four months. "
