"So I have a legit question. Assuming this is your photo. Did you just stand up and take if during mass? Or are churches asking you to photograph services?
Because the first one I kind of have a problem with."
"I snapped this picture during a homily at a weekday mass: https://www.dropbox.com/s/s1sy1ti3b3kebay/web-RHP_7509.jpg and later, after post, I emailed it to the priest as a little gift. He wrote back his thanks, and that he never noticed anyone taking the picture.
It helped that I was in nearly the last pew with nobody behind me, using the camera on quiet mode, dressed like everyone else (no safari hat), etc.
Still, I felt a little ambivalent about doing it."
So the question is, what parameters do you have for photographing religious services?
BUT - no flash. I do not even like using it when a priest says it is okay, which is rare anyway. Better to use a monopod to steady a shot, IMO.
Well, I did not bring my camera to the Vigil mass for a few reasons this year, but I did snap a couple quick pix with my phone. Naturally, this is not a high performance device, so they had to be farted (fine-arted, thank you, Stephanie) up to be presentable at all.
- The world is a massive sacrament of God's love for us
- I want to show the beautiful in things that we otherwise pass by
- You know how your kids are beautiful? You are too. I like to show all that off.
- Freedom isn't an end in itself. The purpose of freedom is to make us capable of love and capable of entering into a communion of love with love's Author.
- The way to find God is to search for truth, beauty, and goodness. This search will always lead us closer to Him whose image and handiwork are painted with those sacred hues and tints. They are his fingerprints.
How I want to be remembered after I die: a strong man, and gentle, who loved God and whomever God put across his path, who learned from the best and thought for himself, who spoke judiciously even if volubly, who encouraged the weak, who warned those in danger, and who never crushed a bruised reed, and who laughed a great deal.
I'm not there, yet.
