Every time I go to my parent's ranch in Paige, Texas I get work done. I think it's just the lack of distractions and relief from the hustle bustle of college and the city. Anyway, I was there recently and my mom and I tried to take a nice photo with the dogs for our family Christmas card. We never got the card but I got this photo of my mom and although it's not great, I really like it.
Also, as always, I took some photos of my beloved bison.
Thanksgiving break means going home & going home means senior portraits. This trip I shot two of my friends from high school, Amelia and Kat. I realized Wednesday while shooting Amelia outside just before sunset that I've been babied to death by my studio, I haven't dealt with the sun as a light source in a while. I've been doing so much soft lighting and backlighting in the studio it took me a while to get used to the harsh and contrasty light from the sun. After a while I started to use it to my advantage again, but I'm still not overly pleased with the results.
