Keenon: Blog http://pauljkeenon.zenfolio.com/blog 90 120 Bad photos corrected http://pauljkeenon.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/10/bad-photos-corrected Many people want to know why a photo is so expensive which is taken by a professional photographer.

Well, you can take the same image, but will you get it correct? Will it be tilted, will the heads or feet be cut off in a portrait, will the color be correct (sun and light bulbs are not all the some or your flash)? How big do you want the photo to be when you develop or print it on your home table top printer?....

I have traveled the world and have visited every continental state and Hawaii to obtain photos of life and history. It is expensive and time consuming. No amount of money could pay what I have invested in my time and travel to obtain the photos you see here. But, you don't have to expend the money, just the cost of my time.

My camera, lens and flash units cost over $10,000 (and for a pro-equipment this is cheap), My cameras will take hundreds of thousands of photos ( ..and I can replace the shutter releases) then I can print almost any size up to 16"X20"...and some even larger. Cameras do have only so many shudder releases (photos to be taken). If you purchase a camera at Target or Sam's it will probably get 50,000 shutter releases really cheap ones only 4,000, if that, and you will be lucky to get 8"X10" printed photos out of it. I need to have several lenses for different orientations and distances. One more thing, my printer will print photos that are guaranteed not to fade and I can print large format photos.

Next is the equipment I have to correct for lighting situations and color correction, orientation etc. Yes, you may be able to get the same programs and equipment but do you know how to use it effectively or do you take the time. For weddings we take upwards of 800 shots, then pick out the best and still have to work on them.

Here are a couple of examples of photos I took to day. I thought that the leaves looked dull in the Arboretum, but all I needed to do is get rid of the haze and sun and color correction.

Why "Covenant Eyes Photography"? http://pauljkeenon.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/1/why-covenant-eyes-photography Today I was asked, "why is your company called 'Covenant Eyes Photography"? I wondered when someone would ask! I think it is evident by the "ABOUT" section of my web page that I am a man who believes that the Lord and Creator of this world is my Hero and the one that I follow to eternity. He is my all and all.
 

 

If we look at the dictionary definition it means things like; promise, contract, agreement and pledge. Then if we continue with that thread of reflection I have made a "pledge" with my eyes. That pledge is to photograph only things that edify people positively and will not in any way detract from my faith and our God.  So with that in mind look at Job 31:1,  “I Have made a covenant with my eyes; How then could I gaze at a virgin? (NASB)." This means not to lust for woman. But, we can lust for many things and I do not want to cause anyone to fall from grace because of my images. I have had my faults with lust for ungodly things as everyone has. I can't promise to not be tempted again, but I can promise not to cause temptation for someone else....That is what "Covenant Eyes Photography" stands for.....PJ Keenon

BEGENNINGS http://pauljkeenon.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/12/begennings I have been a recorder of people, places, and things that strike me as having a unique existence in the creation of this place where we live, Earth, for more than 35 years. The Creator of the Earth is my Lord and Savior with His Father and the Holy Spirit.
 

These photos are meant to edify people and to please your sense of sight and your nostalgia. That being said, I need to eat, so I need to charge for the use of my work and art.
 

I am available for Family and corporate portraits, weddings, corporate events, family events and anything else you can think of!
