Here’s a little bit of a cooler image for you during the warm months.


Logan Mystery

I enjoy visiting the Temple Grounds at night. These structures and the lighting involved is inspiring. Sometimes exposure is difficult to set at night due to the extreme contrast and difference in light temperatures between light sources. So take a lot of different brackets and be sure to shoot in raw so you can adjust the white balance to achieve the desired result.

Logan Utah Temple – In Every Footstep

In Every Footstep
Logan Utah LDS Temple

I am amazed by the pioneer temples. When I think about the dedication of time and materials it would have taken to build something like this magnificent building, I’m humbled by the relative easiness I live and breath and stay warm. These buildings truly stand as a witness to the faith of those early pioneers and their love for their savior.

I feel the peaceful serenity of this day when I enjoy this image. The soft sky floating above, the air outside just slightly warm, a gentle breeze touching the bright green leaves in the trees.

Stand in Holy Places - New Image – Logan Utah LDS Temple

Stand in Holy Places

I’m excited to release this image! Finally I’ve finished another image of the Logan Utah LDS Temple. Logan is quite a bit further away for me and I don’t have a lot of business up in that area so I don’t find myself wandering around the grounds there as much as I’d like. I captured this image on a very very cold day. (Seems to be cold every time I’ve been in Logan) I love how simple and clean this image is. The pioneers who sacrifices so much to build this magnificent building are honored by it’s beauty and endurance all these years. Click the image to see it larger in a new window.

Salt Lake LDS Temple Billboards are up!

DSC02155

Hello everyone!
I have some exciting news! First the back story. I was at work one day and I got an email from my contact page on my website. It was from a Bonneville Communications. The company that takes care of the broadcasting of conference and I'm sure a lot of other things for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He told me they were interested in licensing one of my images for church use on a billboard along I-15. We were able to agree on the terms and it all came together quite quickly. Those folks over at Bonneville Communications run a class act and do a fantastic job. Not only that, they are very considerate of the people they work with, Like me. For instance today, (The day I'm writing this) just to make sure everything went well for me and to let me know the billboard is now up.

I was curious how they would utilize this image on a billboard. It being a vertical tall shot. I think they did a wonderful job and it's not something I've seen done before with something like this.

This image of the Salt Lake Temple I think conveys many of the things I try to communicate through my images. There are a lot of amazing images and paintings of the temples, especially the Salt Lake Temple. It's a major icon of the LDS Church. What I'm looking for when capturing the images isn't just a clean capture, a great shot. I'm hoping that whoever sees my images can feel something, something of the joy of the eternities, or the peace that comes with knowing truth, or the glory and majesty of creation. It's the emotional connection that really makes an image work.

I'd like to thank Bonneville Communications, Ken and John over there are wonderful people. I'd also like to thank all of you who read this blog or follow me on social networks. You Rock! So folks get out there and go see the billboard and visit Temple Square, take in the history and be amazed.

Updated Image "Covenant" Timpanogos Temple

20110829-082058.jpg

As an artist your technique, style, and technology changes as you grow and learn in your craft along with the passage of time and what is inspiring you at that point in your life. For a long time I was nervous about posting an image for sale because of worrying I might want to finish it again or change certain things. I have learned that at least in the art photography world this is a common feeling. As an artist I will adjust, tweak, or alter my images as I see fit. I'm not talking about major drastic changes in most cases, maybe just a change is density or sharpness. Also printing tech and software technology marches along at an incredible rate. Very often this technological advancement allows me to produce higher quality and more pleasing images that match my vision of what the artwork should look like. I just wanted to share with you my thoughts on this process and post this image that I have recently tweaked, I feel this image is more polished and pretty than it has ever been before, and I have loved it from the beginning, the symbolism of covenants through the rainbow and temple have a special place in my life. As you look thorough my images or any image, it's what you feel when you view that make or breaks and image. That is why there are so many different styles of art in the world.
Please, look at this image in the gallery and make a post in the guestbook on the site,

Oquirrh Mountain LDS Temple art



20110828-070156.jpg

I have been completely captivated with the wonderful sculpted clouds that have been decorating our skies these last several weeks. This day was like many of these with wonderful clouds up in the air. I have been wanting to shoot Oquirrh Mountain Temple in the evening with the sun behind it for a while. When I setup my tripod I soon realized the clouds were actually going to be somewhat of a problem, they were really moving! Why is this a problem you ask? I am shooting HDR imagery which means you have to take several images back to back with different exposures and then combine them into one. This process is trickier when things are moving such as clouds etc. My Idaho Falls shoot was much the same. On the up side, with the clouds moving so rapidly, you just had to wait five minutes if something wasn't right in the sky to get the next shot.

What's next for me? I have been wanting to get up north to Brigham City, Bountiful, maybe Logan. I'm also planning another walk around the Salt Lake Temple.
Thanks for reading.













Manti LDS Temple Sunrise Shoot

20110827-061952.jpg

Here is my pic of the week. I just love this image. It's an infrared HDR image of the Manti, Utah LDS Temple. I'm sure most of the readers of this blog are familiar with this building and where it's located. As you know it's up on a pretty good sized hill. The north side is currently the entrance but the west side doors were the original main entrance and there used to be a giant set of steps going all the way down the hill. For some reason the west side view is my favorite. Most of the images I see around are the south side of the temple. It's the easiest view to get the temple in the frame as you are standing either right next to the temple shooting up or are down a hill looking up. Some kind of helicopter camera would be nice to get some higher angles.
