Photographs do not always convey the truth, although we often like to think they do. It is becoming increasingly easy to manipulate photographs in our digital world. To find the truth we must question what we see.

“Discover for yourselves the reality of things, and strive to assimilate the methods by which noble-mindedness and glory are attained among the nations and people of the world.

No man should follow blindly his ancestors and forefathers. Nay, each must see with his own eyes, hear with his own ears and investigate independently in order that he may find the truth. The religion of forefathers and ancestors is based upon blind imitation. Man should investigate reality.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 24)

Chad was initiated into the world of digital SLRs in 2007 and he continues to be amazed by the photographic opportunities that are presented to him.

He loves sharp lenses, time-lapse videos, and exercising his powers of observation. His portfolio is here and his Flickr page is here.
