"Through it all"

When you use a camera, not as a machine but as an extension of your heart, you become one with your subject. -Anonymous

Skee's been absent quite a lot in the past couple of weeks, so here's a big apology.

I have been quite tied up on various projects both photographic and of course design related, so it's good to be back with a "stonker" for a Monday's shot.

My journey over the past couple of years has been quite exciting, when I think were I've been, the place were I'm at now, and the places were I know I will go, I thank God, that each obstacle I pass, boundaries I cross, have continuously strengthened me.

I've titled today's shot simply: "Through it all", and  no matter what drama we go through prayers really do change things.

About my work

I make no apologies for the lack or rather the absence of colour in many of my shots. There's something about artistic photography that leaves it void of colour. For me, this composition losses a lot of it's impact as a colour composition.

For anyone interested in "Low light" photography, get some "decent glass" I normally use a f1.4  50mm or a F1.2L 85mm primes but  all the rest of my equipment is f2.8's and I shoot at mostly iso 1600.

how bout the 50mmf/1.8?
is that decent glass?

this pic is great!
Mr Skee: The 50mmf1.8 is a very good choice especially if ure on a budget...it's worth every penny.
For the extra stops the 50mm f1.4 and now the 50mm f1.2L might be "luxury" lenses but they definately pull their weight in the DOF catergory

Beautiful shot. And your choice of black and white really does add to the impact of the shot. Dont tell me you were shooting in church wink
Mr Skee: Lol, thanks...church yes, service no, we had a concert over the weekend smile, I do lots of photography for my church, mostly concerts smile

This photo was shot through two people standing in my front, which has become one of my fav techniques that I have adopted for shooting in crowded venues smile
great angle, use of light and intent.
Mr Skee: thanks for dropping by and for this comment smile

I like the proverb at the beginning, it's true, Photography is matter of heart and sensibility long time before technical management...

Thanks for your comment
I adore this shot. Another moment in time is captured, and you have summed it up admirably. My heart did a double-pump when I saw this image, it's strong, and full of emotion. Beautiful work.
