View Camera

While I was getting my degree in photography I had to take a class that focused on the view camera. I have to admit at first I absolutely dreaded it. The 4x5 view camera was a heavy camera, not just in bulk but it's mechanisms were clumsy. I don't think I had a moment with the view camera that did not result in bruises. I also was frustrated with the film holders and the complicated process in the developing of the film. You get the point... complain complain. Through the frustration of the view camera emerged a new love of photography. I discovered a new world amongst the tilt shifting lenses and bellows of the beast.

I discovered an artist named Keith Carter, His images looked like something that had been locked inside of a dream and just waiting to be released.

I hope to post more of my view camera images.

Stay tuned...

Baptism - A new life

On a chilly day in April 2009, over 200 people were baptized in the murky little pond that sits quietly behind Southland Christian Church off of Harrodsburg Rd in Lexington. I felt privileged to sit in the grass on that sunny Kentucky afternoon, basking in the sun and witnessing this life changing event.

Southland is continuing with the popular pond baptisms this year on April 4, 2010. Here is the link for more information,

"Jesus answered, 'Truly, truly, I say to you,
Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
(John 3:5)

"Therefore go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"
(Mat 28:19)
