Thinking

Thinking

God is the only audience of your thoughts.

Thoughts are, in one sense, a message to God.

I probably have 2000 photos that would work here, but I just selected a few collections, and chose these, for the story “Thinking.”

Photographer with Shaky Hands

Photographer with Shaky Hands

dscf0385

How can I possibly be a pro photographer with these trembling hands?

Everyone has a tremor, even if it isn’t visible.

So, I just do what any good photographer does: keep an eye on my shutter speed and lens length, use a tripod and remote where possible, and stabilize my body as best as possible when a tripod is not possible.

But, if I want to blur the photo, I’ve got a great hand tremor that complements a 1/60s exposure!
