“He gave me life when I gave him mine...”, “ toward the Lord I lift my eyes up....” , and “Satan creeping around, probably peeping me now...”, are just a few of the lines from “I Get This Feeling” by Fred Lane The Revelator a Philadelphia Christian Hip Hop Artist that decided to get his message out for everyone to hear and "The Lift was" born! 

Along with Charlie “K”, Philadelphia Christian Hip Hop artist, and hosted Thomas "Konscience" Finney who also helped organized this event and deciding to take a stand against the inner city violence that plagues Philadelphia and the surrounding community. Along with a group of other socially conscious hip hop artist that included: Samuel Delaghetto who brought is spoken word poem "Enough is Enough.

iPhone-ography Images


I wanted to show that "it's the eye behind the camera" that makes the photo. You have to have vision,artistic talent, and know a bit of photography.

I decided to post a few images I took with my iPhone along with a bit of tweeting using different photo apps. I think the smart phone camera can help to develop composition and creativity in some and will never replace a DSLR when it come to professional photography.

Palmyra Cove Nature Park NJ

Went out today and captured images of the insects that frequent the many types of flowers at Palmyra Cove Nature Park
I was joined by fellow photographers from the Maple Shade-Moorestown Camera Club. It started to rain but soon the sun came out and so did the butterflies and other insects.

Thanks for viewing. Comments are welcomed and please follow me on Twitter and Facebook

KHARMA TRAIN

      I have been following the band Kharma Train for a few months now and like their shows. The band covers a wide variety of songs from classic rock to todays current hits and can be found at many venues around South Jersey and Delaware and you can click on their name to find more show  dates. Kharma Train includes: Lindsay Guarino, lead vocals; Ed Cleary, lead guitar; Vince Cuomo, percussions; John Keli, bass guitar and Fuzzyman, rhythm guitar. When they are in your area, you have to attend, you will have a great time.
       I have taken a few photos of the band using my iPhone and the app Instagram but this night I decided to bring out the "big guns" and use my Canon 5D Mark II and used two of my favorite lenses, the Canon 50mm "L" f/1.2 and Canon 100mm 2.8 L
        The venue was The Jug Handle Inn, in Cinnaminson New Jersey, has awesome wings by the way, is were the group performed. It was bit dark and I didn't want to annoy the guest by using a flash, so I decided to use available light. I used an ISO range of 2500 to 4000 and yes I didn't always use manual settings nor did I use automatic. I was very happy with how the 50mm preformed in such low light. I also photographed the entire show using the RAW file format which was a big help when editing with Lightroom. I was using the monochrome setting but when I imported into Lightroom, the images converted back to color, no worries, I just changed them back. I have uploaded a few here and comments are welcomed and hope to see you at the next show and thanks for viewing.
