Paige, TX

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.


Oh give me a home...

Senior Portraits

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.
