Be Prepared

I was chillin with a friend the other night when The Mechanic came on, we hadn’t seen the movie in awhile so we decided to watch it.   I’m not giving anything away for those who haven’t seen the Jason Statham flick, but there’s a gun in the movie that has engraved on the side AMAT VICTORIA CURAM, translated from the Latin means Victory Loves Preparation.

As I thought about the phrase I began to think how well it relates not only to our relationship with Christ but also to the photographic world.

In order to have victory in our relationship with Christ we also need to be prepared.

Always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.

(1 Peter 3:15)

In the same way, if we are to have victory in our photography we need to be prepared.

How you prepare is the question.  

In Christ, thankfully we have the Holy Spirit to guide us through the process of conforming ourselves to the image of God (Sanctification).

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

(Romans 12:2 ESV)

As a photographer, we may not have the spirit of Ansel Adams in our ear to instruct us, but thanks to the internet there are tons of resources online to learn from to help us on our journey to becoming a master photographer.  For those of you in the San Diego area, we have free photo-classes to help you along the way…

We want to help y’all be prepared.  More prepared you are, more fun you will have, and more photos you take that you will love.  At least that’s the idea…  Come join us on Wednesday nites in Rm 353.  Leave us a comment if you want more info on our classes.
