A Slight Change In Direction and Attitude

Have you watched those Olympic races where the difference between first and second place is a mere fraction of a second? That slight difference is everything.  Similarly, the difference between average and unique is small, as small as a variation in attitude. We all use the same creative intelligence, and how we use it produces a slight distinction between great and average.

It doesn’t matter if we are fast thinkers, or slow thinkers, extroverted or introverted, it seems.  What matters is that we let our thinking land solidly on what we desire for life. Add conviction and the warmth of emotion to our thinking, and the direction we choose for our lives begins to take form.

We have a choice. We have the ability, and right, to take charge of our inner lives.  We can mindfully, and repeatedly dwell upon a vision of something larger, more expressive, and more beautiful than what we experience now.

The Science of Mind teaching challenges the idea that we are controlled only by forces outside of us and encourages us to take into account that we can direct our thinking, adopt new attitudes, and visualize a greater-yet-to-be. Imagine if we no longer accepted the idea that time, age, gender, social status, and forces beyond our control determined our attitude towards life.  

What would it be like if you took time daily to so thoroughly immerse yourself in an image of a good for your life, a good for your family and loved ones, a good for your nation, that it felt as natural to you to accept that image as it is for others to accept the idea that they are trapped and stuck by the way things are.

Inspired by the writings of Dr. Robert H. Bitzer

Fabulous iPhone Food Photos - iPhone Photography

It's not always appropriate, or even nice, to yank up the saturation on photos when editing, but it sure can come in handy making food look delicious.  Here are the before and after photos, tighter crop and bump the saturation up.  Food photograph is fun, like flower photography, it's difficulty to go wrong.

And there are things a photographer can do to help a good photograph be even better.

Fancy Filters for Fun - iPhone Photography

Arrrgh, don't get me started!  Filters on photographs are so much fun and can turn a dull photo into something amazing, and an excellent photo into something surreal.

This was already a wonderful photo of a scene in Ireland, with this fabulously fancy filter, it now looks as magical as the place felt.

Taken with iPhone and edited with DreamScope.

Post Perfect Picture Editing - iPhone Photography

Here I hope you can see the progression of edits, taking a photo I loved, helping the background come alive, and then causing the colors to be more vibrant.  I am still working on the Make You Look Younger edits.  There is an app for that.  Seriously.  More about that later.

I can't remember if I took these on my iPhone 6 plus or on my iPhone S.

Post Perfect Pose Editing - iPhone Photography

This little guy was so patient with me getting the horizon almost horizontal.  In the second photo, I didn't quite get it right.  However, there are ways to edit and fix a photo later.  And it's a lot of fun too.  The trick with photo editing apps is to make sure they save the photo in the same resolution that you took it.  Some will do that only when you buy the full-featured app.

More about editing later.  For now, I'm just enjoying the light on the water and my patient model.

Blinds and Lights

I love catching moments when the light changes up an ordinary scene.  I love how the strands of light through the blinds interact with Kevin's plaid shirt.  I love that he was concentrating so hard that he didn't notice me capturing the moment.

This photo was taken with my iPhone 6+.  Perhaps Santa is bringing me an X.

Today I give up the idea that I need to be inspired to express my greatness. I look within and find that the Infinite Mind of God within me has never ceased providing me with inspiration, ideas, and newness. I consider myself to be highly blessed.
