Behind The Lens


I was looking for a unique place take photos that would help me stand out from the other photographers in the area when I came across this back road outside Scurry County Texas! It had an amazing backdrop, tracks, and a lonely country road perfect for laying in!


This particular photo was taken closer to sunset. We had started around 4pm the sky and lighting was perfect!


It was a gorgeous west Texas evening!


To take this photo I was using my Nikon Z6II with a 250-700m telescopic lens.


I was looking for something to help me stand out amongst the other photographers in my area. I was working on portfolio shots to showcase my talent!


I did need to lighten up the photo a bit and with it being the end of winter I did add some warmth to the photo to make it pop a little more!

In my camera bag

I usually carry an extra lens, lens wipe, and an extra battery. As well as business cards.


Just be creative. I took several shots at this particular location. Changing the way I had her placed till I found one that I liked the most!
