World Vison

World Vision is an organization that helps children all over the world. They joined with Jememy Camp on a US music tour. I happened to be at that concert this past weekend.


Way FM sponsored the groups to come to Denver


The concert started with Jason Grey. He has some great music but did an amazing job of giving his testimony about how he started sponsoring a child with World Vision.


Jason has a stutter and has overcome it in almost all situations. He even made a joke about punching the person who named a stutter a stutter because it is tough to say.

The following 2 bands were CHASEN and The Afters. Both played great music.



I thought this picture was great but I need to work on the post processing. It looks choppy in the darker colors.

And finally the star of the show.

I thought that there was no way I could take a good picture of the moon but here it is. Better and better every time.

Areas for improvement... focus. The moon is not in sharp focus. To remedy this I will try to use live view on a tripod and manual focus. I hope to try that later this week.

Family Christmas

Christmas in 2009 was a portrait shoot for my sisters family and dinner at my parents house.

I later found out that the camera I bought had some major focusing problems but the pictures came out ok. Hopefully the replacement will be spot on!
