Throwback Post: From my National Geographic photography days. My last big trip was about a year ago, I went to Hawaii and it was fantastic. I just returned from a trip to Yellowstone National Park. I figured, I’d better make a post about our last trip before I make any uploads or posts about yellowstone, […]

UTA Volleyball

UTA Volleyball

We were asked to photograph the stadium at the University of Texas at Arlington. Anyone can see how handsome the stadium is from the outside, but it only gets better inside. That night, there was an excellent Mavs volleyball game that we had the privilege of photographing as well!       We had an excellent […]

White Balance

Throwback Tutorial: White balance is somewhat of a new effect and is a term used only in the digital photography world. It’s extremely important for interiors and especially weddings to make sure white is white (or a neutral gray). A lot of people use a “gray card”. I don’t. I don’t care if the white […]

Throwback Post: This is just a tribute to the sun. I took this in near rush hour stopped at a red light back in December of 2005. It’s one of my recent uploads to Flickr as I try to catch up to present day. Tomorrow, if it’s rainy, and it’s forecasted to be, will be […]

Macro flowers and bugs. – Botanical Gardens

Throwback Post: Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the commercial and corporate stuff and shoot just for fun. I got a macro extension tube, so I made a stop at the botanical gardens while I was in Fort Worth. I recently bought a macro flash too, so look out for more posts with […]

Time of Day

Time of Day.Probably the most important factor in outdoor photography. Below is Prince of Peach church and school in Carrollton, TX. This was my ultimate choice, about an hour and a half before sunset. Here’s the same shot, but with cloud cover. Depending on the day, you might have to wait anywhere from a few […]

Storms 2011 | Dallas National Geographic Photography

This year has been one of the craziest years for storms for North Texas and the central plains, but we’re on the decline now. I’ve had the chance to storm chase twice with some meterologists. That was a blast, although extremely close and following the right cells, I’ve still yet to see a tornado. One […]

Double Rainbow – all the way – OMG!

Yes, it’s a funny youtube video, but it’s also a spectacular natural phenomenon. It was quite a pleasant sight from the kitchen window, and I quickly drove Sarah and I to an open area so I could see the whole thing. This is it in our neighborhood! On our street. From the car window. Panorama […]
