Doug and Jenny Moo
Doug and Jenny have been married for over forty years, having met when Doug moved to the Chicago area to begin seminary studies. We have five married children and nine grandchildren. Jenny works in the home, helping Doug with his ministry and taking on an occasional proofing or indexing job for publishers. She also considers it a joy to support her children in their marriages and child-rearing.
Doug is Wessner Chair of Biblical Studies at Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois, and also serves as chair of the Committee on Bible Translation (NIV).
Jenny and Doug pursue photography together. We especially enjoy photographing the beauty and variety of the world God has given us to inhabit (although most of our photographs these days feature grandchildren!). We have found that an eye for photographs can transform even a mundane walk in our neighborhood into an appreciation of aspects of nature that we never otherwise would have noticed. Photography is, of course, all about light, and we are grateful for those times when God has provided some spectacular spotlighting of his creation for us.
The galleries on this site reflect our love for several special places. We have made two trips to Alaska, once via plane and rental car and once via car alone (a wonderful 8681-mile road trip). We hope to make this trip again soon. Closer to home, we have spent many a long weekend in Door County, Wisconsin, a five-hour trip from our home. We also especially enjoy the landscapes of western North America. My ministry has afforded us opportunities to travel to many other parts of the world (although photography, naturally, is not the focus of these trips).
Since taking up photography seriously twenty years ago, we have used a variety of cameras and lenses. Photographs on this site were taken with Canon film cameras, the Mamiya 7 medium-format camera, the Tachihara 4x5 view camera, and a variety of Canon DSLRs. We currently use a 7D and 5D3, with a variety of lenses. Our basic tripod is the Gitzo 3541XLS (large enough to allow Doug -- 6'7" -- to shoot at eye level) with a RRS BH-55 ballhead and Acratech leveling base. We also use the Gitzo Explorer for macro photography and a Benbo MeFoto when we need to travel relatively unencumbered.
Doug enjoys using Photoshop to process our images, trying to enhance them in a way that remains true to the scenes we actually photographed (with some exceptions: several photos in the gallery have been modified with the oil paint filter). We print our photos on an Epson 4900 and matte and frame them ourselves.
