Faith at Genesis Upper Room Church in San Jose, California


"When the Feast of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Without warning there was a sound like a strong wind, gale force—no one could tell where it came from. It filled the whole building. Then, like a wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks, and they started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them." Acts 2:1-4

thoughts on voting


Voting is one of the most important act an American can do. 


My grandmother born in 1918 and is a Mexican-American from Texas, votes and takes me to vote with her every time. She is proud to vote every season. She exercises her American right with strength and determination. She has a heart for the vulnerable and a righteous rage for the 'Hambrientos" (slang for greedy) of this nation.

"Ay vastante dinero para todos." 
She teaches me so much. Now that she's older she votes absentee. She takes the act of voting seriously, as a woman, as a Mexican-American, as a Texan/Californian, shoot as an American citizen.

Exercise your right California! Vote!

Embed your Google virtual tour on Facebook

This guide will help you to embed your Google virtual tour on your facebook page. 

Start by navigating to this facebook app. Click on "Add Static HTML to a Page." Next click on the dropdown box and select the page on which you'd like to put your Google virtual tour and click "Add Page Tab." The button will take you to your page where you can customize the tab. Click on "Set up tab."

Now you will need to navigate to your Google virtual tour. You will need to access the tour from Google Maps, not by clicking the 'See Inside' photo from a Google search. Before you go on with any of these steps, you have to toggle the virtual tour to specific view you want. Each different angled view or zoom level has a unique embed code, so you embed different starting points of your tour on different parts of your website. For instance, the pictured tour is a furniture store. If the website for that business had separate pages for bedroom, living room, kitchen, they could embed separate virtual tours that start in those locations. 

Once you have the virtual tour pointed where you want it, click the three small vertical dots next to the name of the business. (see below)

A small menu will appear. Click on 'Share or embed image.' (see below)

A new window will appear. Click on the 'Embed Image' tab. Now you will have the option to select the size of your embedded virtual tour. I recommend setting a custom size of 800x500 (width x height.) Once you selected your size option, highlight and copy the entire code in the box. (see below)

Now you have your embed code copied. Go back to the window that popped up when you clicked on the set up tab button. Paste your embed code in the box that contains text (erase the text). Next click on the Actions dropdown and select "Edit name and image." You will have to login with facebook. Pick a name that will entice people to click on the tab and view your tour. When you're all finished, click on "Save & Publish" and close the window. 

From your facebook control panel, you can move the new tab you just created to a prominent view. Your tour is now public and ready for anyone to view. Congrats!

We understand that business owners have a lot on their plates. If you'd like Convinced Photography to help you with any of this, we are a phone call or email away.

Google Business Photos draw potential customers in...

Earlier this month we created a fantastic Google Street View for business for our wonderful clients in Lewiston, Maine. Drew's Dental is a great dental office that has a fun easy going staff that will make you feel right at home. 

Our clients are wonderful and we are so happy to see the success they are gaining from the photography we created for them. Such great news! Congratulations Drew's Dental. 

If you are a local business owner and are wondering whether or not you should invest time and effort on your Google presence, these statistics may just convince you to do so. In just 20 days over 500 people looked at this image when searching for a dental office in Maine. Isn't that pretty incredible. 

Wouldn't all business like 500 new views?
