Nikon 40mm f/2.8 G DX Micro-NIKKOR lens
This past semester in my math class I discovered a classmate that shared a passion for photography. One day she approached me with the offer of allowing me to use her NIKKOR Micro lens for a few days. She wanted to see what I would be able to do with it. I gladly accepted her offer. The lens was a 40mm NIKKOR Micro f/2.8 lens. The lens allowed me to take my photography to a higher level. I enjoyed every minute of my experience with the lens. I hope you enjoy the photos I was able to produce with it.
A crystallized rock I have displayed in my room is pictured in the photo.
When I shot this frame, my dad and I were leaving a local nature park. My dad was pushing me in my wheelchair, so I could give my arms a rest. At a certain point, something told me to look up, and when I did, I saw this. Without thinking, while my dad was still pushing me, I placed my camera up to my eye and was able to get one shot before I was pushed away. This was the result.
First off, I wanted to say that the retreat I went on this past weekend was beyond awesome! The presence of God was so strong. An experience I will never forget!
Anyway, after the Landscape photo assignment in my photography class, we did a Low-light/Motion photo assignment. It was a bit of a challenge for me because I had never never done anything like this, but I had a lot of fun experimenting. My professor let me borrow her tripod for this which I couldn’t have pulled it off with out it. The photo below is the photo I chose to submit for the assignment. This was done in the school auditorium with the lights dimmed. Two of my classmates helped with the photo.

I just wanted to take the time to thank all who have sacrificed their lives to make sure the American people have freedom every single day. Thank you.
In my photography class this past semester we had to submit our best Landscape photo. My original plan was to take a new landscape photo, but that didn’t happen, so I found this old photo and thought it was perfect for the assignment. If you have been following me for a while, you might recognize the photo. I have posted it before on here. I shot this with my very first camera, (Nikon COOLPIX s210) in about the year 2008. This was shot on a hill, somewhere in Kerrville, Texas, overlooking this body of water.
In a couple of hours from now I will be going off to a Young Adults retreat. Please keep me and everyone that will be attending in your thoughts and prayers.
Just a few hours ago another year of college had come to a close and another summer vacation has begun! It was an awesome school year! I met a lot of awesome people along the way. As far as my photography, this past semester, I have grown immensely and will continue to grow. My photography class was an amazing experience! I was able to experiment with light and motion like I had never done before. Now that I have more free time on my hands, I will catch you guys up on the photography assignments I have not posted yet. I am looking forward to what this summer will bring! Stay posted!
I hope all the Mothers out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
On the first Friday of every month, the area immediately south of Downtown San Antonio, Texas, known as Southtown or the King William District hosts an art walk known as First Friday . A diverse crowd of art lovers can visit galleries, art spaces, vintage stores, and street vendors selling art and jewelry, all while listening to live music played in the streets. Events vary month to month and it’s all free.
This past Friday I went to this art walk for the very first time, and was lucky to be a part of it as well. As part of my final exam for Photography class my classmates and I got a chance to display our best work in my professor’s art studio. It was such an awesome experience! I got a chance to meet some amazing artists and received lots of compliments of my work. I came close to selling a photo a few times, but never did, which is okay because the experience was worth it!
During the event, this scene in the photo below, caught my eye because of the lighting and colors of it. Also, I think that this scene represents what First Friday is all about in one single photo; art, people, and music. So, I had to snap a photo. I’m glad I did! Enjoy!
