Good photography is all about the light. You can make stunning photos without color, leading lines or even a well defined subject. Without light, however, we wouldn’t be able to see anything, let alone make photos. A good photographer seeks the best light for the subject. Sometimes that means waiting patiently for the sun to set or rise. Or perhaps it means moving to a different location to capture the light in a more meaningful way.

So it is with the human experience. All light comes from the Creator of the universe. A “good” life is shown in a person who uses the Light given to them to make a vibrant and meaningful picture.

Matthew 4:16 says the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light,
and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.” (ESV). That “great light” is the Son of God, Jesus who died to save the world from their sin. As a photographer, I continually am amazed by God’s creation and the light that he gives us every day.
