Life in a ranch

Life in a ranch,

This past July me and my family got an opportunity to experience Life in a ranch. My lovely spouse, myself and my two hyper-active wonderful children headed down south to Ocala Florida. We got the experience of a lifetime that will remain locked in our special memory bank. The invitation came from my wife family who absolutely love the city of Ocala. They showed us around the city and took us on some neat nearby attractions. We did all sort of adventurous activities, such as swimming in the chilled clear water in Rainbow Springs Park, or riding down the hills and rocks of Santos Trails on our mountain bikes, and ending it with some delicious homemade southern dishes.

Throughout our time visiting I manage to capture some very eye opening images that I have decided to share with you all. This fellow was very shy and seem to not want to interact with anyone, but he sure stayed still for this photo. We also got the opportunity to fly the DJI Phantom 3 drone above the 50 plus acres of land while capturing the spectacular view of the horses galloping across the fields.

This photo was taken a the right moment. This is the same horse that was very timid and ended up being our model for the day. This photo really got me to see a horse in a different way I have never seen them. This creature is a beauty to humanity and has been used for many centuries as our means of transportation.

Laughter defeats anger

Ken

We have forgotten to laugh! We have forgotten to be at peace, to be happy, and to be free. Nowadays, our days are filled with plans about our careers, goals, achievements, and even how to pay the debts that we got our self into. And while all of these are very important we cannot allow them consume us. It is essential to stop and breath, to pause and meditate, to press on the breaks and laugh! On our journey to reach these goals we run into all sort of moments: happy, sad, accomplishments, disappointing, and even angry moments. I have a secret tool to overcome these moments.  When this occurs let’s release the secret weapon, “Laughter.” According to Health Guide laughter is “the best medicine” that we can have to be able to face day to day challenges. It helps with stressed moments.

Kenny & Sophia 2I have noticed throughout the past four years, while working in Property Management,s that we can easily fall into “Auto Pilot” or “Tunnel Vision.” We get so caught up with what the world wants from us and the things we need to do that we forget what’s most important – to laugh! So let us heal, let us be at peace, let us be happy, let us laugh!

My family is my success, my foundation, my treasure, my very own bundle of joy. Without them in my life, their would be less laughter.  – Jeancarlo Gomez

-Below are my 5 reasons why laughing is important

  1. Laughing changes the atmosphere in a hostile environment
  2. Laughter helps reduce stress
  3. Laughter helps you forget about your problems
  4. Laughing is good for the heart
  5. Laughing creates memorable friendship

Chronicles of a Photographer: Words from an Expert

Kenneth

Well, I believe that as you continue to grow and sharpen your skills in photography, you may dislike some of your photos and may even tell yourself that you could have done a better job. But, don’t let yourself discourage you! This is what I like to call your biggest competitor – yourself. The truth is that blasting your previous work and/or comparing your work, that is already magnificent, with other professionals or amateur artists could be quite saddening and heartbreaking. So, learn to recognize the work of others and possibly be inspired by it, and use it in a healthy manner, try not to compare your work to others in a way that diminishes what you do. It is always great practice to be open to learn from others while understanding that you are not the other person and our personalities, though processes, and ways of shooting are different. You were given a gift, a gift to enjoy, to capture art, people, music, action, nature, and anything that crosses your path.  Don’t fall into drowning yourself with discouragement and some type of jealousy towards others and their work, instead take time to recognize your work as unique, special, and different. Photography has no right or wrong if it’s done purposely, so enjoy what you do and be happy with your work and remember that if you want to grow in this trade, you do it for yourself and to enjoy it, do it purposely and passionately, do it for love and not for money!

Chronicles of a Photographer: The Unpredictable

DSC_3567The Unpredictable


Sometimes when we look at photographs or films we look at the amazing work done, but we never sit and ponder about the hard work and dedication that is required to obtain these results. We may look at a great piece of art within its borders and may not be aware of the obstacles the models and artists had to overcome. Their job as professionals is to simply to create and capture those very special moments with no distractions or objects on the way, sounds simple right? Well, not really! It could be quite challenging when working against the weather, crowded areas, unwanted objects, and we can’t forget the most annoying but yet best tool for photography, the sun! Many things could happen during a shoot, like forgetting to charge your battery, running out of space on your memory card and not being able to delete a thing because, you need all the data, or maybe you just forgot to clean your lens and the images have black spots everywhere. Oh boy! Although things like this do happen, with practice you will gain experience and even if at the beginning of your career these things happen, don’t be afraid! Just make sure to do your best at being prepared for the unpredictable.

Thanks for reading!
