Maple Tree // Days of Autumn 2

I'm always so amazed at all the beauty around us.

Grateful too, that God continued to make the world beautiful even after we rebelled against Him in the garden. After rebelling against our very creator, we certainly don't deserve it, yet every year, without fail the trees burst into a fireworks display of color!
It speaks to His great riches towards us, doesn't it?  =)

"For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse."   ~Romans 1:20

I'm so thankful for Autumn colors . . .

"Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
    let the sea roar, and all that fills it;   
  let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy   
  before the Lord, for he comes,
    for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
    and the peoples in his faithfulness." 
~Psalm 96: 11-13

God Bless!

Meadowland Designs and Mamba Bars // Open house

 Product photography.

I haven't really done much in this area of photography, but now that I've had the chance to play around with it at the open house my sister hosted to sell her jewelry. I look forward to doing more of it! My 1.8-50mm lens is ideal for this kind of photography, when you need mostly close ups, and the ability to shoot with a large aperture is greatly appreciated in the low light setting.

When photographing the jewelry from Meadowland Designs, I got to play with color, shapes, and light in the display of the jewelry. Not to mention the bokeh-licous sparkle of the crystals in many of her designs! Fun, fun, fun. 

We also invited our friend Rachel, who lives on a hobby farm, to come and sell the goatsmilk soap that she makes.

When photographing the soaps from Mamba Bars, I really enjoyed playing with the repeating elements of the labels, pumps, and, the bars themselves. It's really too bad pictures can't convey scent as well, but I can tell you that they smelled amazing!

Both of these entrepreneurs have worked hard at developing their businesses and have done a great job with their products, so you might mosey along to their sites and find out more about them. =)

God Bless!
