…When you give your camera to someone else, because the photojournalist that is there wants to flank a calf? You get interesting photos.
Allow me to show you the results of my 28mm lens, a bit of instruction (ie- get close so you don’t need binoculars to see what is in the photo), and a guy who looks like he might be able to have a career as a photographer- except I think he wants to be a psychologist or some such nonsense as that!
Here’s the cowboy’s youngest brother, Bud:
The Cowboy’s Brother, Guthrie (there’s four of them, those boys, by the way):
A self portrait of the man holding the camera:
A long-time, family friend:
The man who loves to stay covered in dirt, and blood and other stuff for the weekend:
A stoic photo of my little brother:
A laughing portrait of my BIL (who by the way, is also a saddle maker):
A gorgeous photo of Jordyn ( who was kind enough to let me shoot her senior photos a couple years back):
A hilarious photo of our intern for the summer, Ladeana:
And me hard at work, shooting with a Nikon D3 (serious, serious camera envy folks), because the photojournalist (who, of course, I photographed) wanted to do some work in the branding pen, and who are we to tell him no?
And there you have it! What happens when you give your camera to someone else. You get photos of the person who’s usually behind the lens!
In case you’re wondering about my absence, and you’ve been in a hole- or you don’t follow me on Facebook, my family came in this past week because it was time for our annual Father’s Day Branding! They left me too busy to catch anyone up on my life, which is fine, because a great time was had by all and many memories were made. So this week, I plan to catch everyone up on my life through lots of photos and fun stories!
