I took this headshot and environmental portrait from an iPad camera.
More “Weather” Photography
These photographs were taken at the weather-confused TCU vs. OSU game in Stillwater. Though the high for the day was in the mid-50s, in the direct sunlight it was quite hot. TCU fans spent a fair amount of time shedding layers and putting them back on when the sun would go behind a cloud.
Free Style – Environmental Portraits
Golden Gate Bridge Gallery
I took both of these action photos by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
I took all of the following photos with the department cameras, using the telephoto lens only.
I took these photos with one of the department’s Canon cameras. The photos are of a mother in her primary environment – the nursery. The mother is the subject of the portraits, but the baby is in the pictures too because the baby is part of the mother. Especially in this current stage of both of their lives, the two are each a significant part of the other. I don’t like the lighting. I had a difficult time getting the settings right, and my time with the two was limited, so I had to work with what I could figure out.
While on assignment for TCU 360, I took these photographs with one of the department’s cameras.
For these photographs, I used a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi.

For these photographs, I used a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. For the first, the ISO was set at 1600 and the shutter speed at one-tenth of a second. For the second, ISO was set at 1600 and the shutter speed at 6 seconds.

I took this photograph of my mom outside of my childhood home in New Braunfels, Texas. The sunlight is direct, unblocked by clouds or any other form of diffusion. I used an Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 to take this photo.

I took this photograph of my dad at his fire station in San Marcos, Texas. The sunlight is diffused by clouds as well as several trees outside the bay of the station. I used an Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 to take this photo.

I took these photographs in the youth building of my church. The first series is of my best friend, Miranda, at the drum set, lit by a purple stage light. The bottom picture of the whole group contains many sources of light, including Christmas lights on the ceiling and multiple stage lights. I used an Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 to take these photos.

For these self-portraits, I sat at my kitchen table, and I completely opened the dining room window to let in the fullest amount of daylight. Using the self-timer function on my camera, I set the camera on a stack of books for the right level. My primary object in the photograph is the coffee cup and saucer. I wanted the photograph to show a sense of my daily life, so it’s in my home, in a place I sit often, with the surroundings like they appear on a normal basis.
