Photography 101

| 1:14 MIN READ |

Everybody’s a photographer in today’s world. The development and proliferation of smartphones give us all opportunities to capture memorable moments.

There’s a big difference, however, in photography and outstanding photography. Anyone can take a picture, but it takes skill, practice, and artwork to create something inspirational. Good photographers know and practice some things that others often do not.

Two key parts of photography are frame and focus. A sharp photo is well-framed and adequately focused. When time and attention is given to these steps, an image has a higher possibility of communicating its story.

Frame and focus are critical parts of life too. To have a strong, impactful life, you need a clear spiritual and mental frame of reference. You need to think the right way and value the right things. You also need proper focus. This refers to the attention you give to the right priorities.

Jesus spoke of the kind of life that is properly framed and focused in Matthew 6:33 (NLT) “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

What adjustments do you need to make to your frame and focus? Make them now, and your life will improve!
