I took this photo for my sermon on Sunday. It would have been better had I done an exposure stack, but I still like how it turned out. I most appreciate this photo is it shows off the fantastic pencil support of Lightroom CC on iOS. Everything indoors, save the illuminated bricks, on the floor was nothing but shadow in the unedited image. I used an adjustment brush to increase the exposure of all the dark areas in the frame, which gives it a fascinating look. The one portion which vexed me was the spot right above the door frame, it was so dark bringing out any details created too many problems to make it worth the effort.

I’m a fan of doorways in general, but photographs like this one are not my typical way of capturing them. From the outside doorways hint at the possibility of a hidden world opposite the portal. From the inside, however, an open door reveals the reality of a different world, inviting the viewer to head through and explore.

    I love it, but it’s not invite the worlds in but going out to meet the world with Jesus.
