What does a photographer’s eye teach us about seeing God more? Can a greater understanding of the nature of the camera’s lens help un-shutter and focus our vision?
“Seeing, in the finest and broadest sense, means using your senses, your intellect and your emotions. It means encountering your subject matter with your whole being. It means looking beyond the label of things and discovering the remarkable world around you.”
Canadian Photographer Freeman Patterson, Page 7, Photography and the Art of Seeing
“My whole being will exclaim, "Who is like you, O LORD?”
Psalm 35:20, NIV
“Letting go of self is an essential precondition to real seeing. When you let go of yourself, you abandon any preconceptions about the subject matter that might cramp you into photographing in a certain, predetermined way. As long as you are worried about whether or not you will be able to make good pictures, or are concerned about enjoying yourself, you are unlikely either to make the best photographs you can or to experience the joy of photography to the fullest.”
Freeman Patterson, Page 9, Photography and the Art of Seeing
“Teach me your way, O LORD,
and I will walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear your name.”
Psalm 86:11, NIV
