Futurity Sale Yearling Photoshoot

I had a great equine photo road trip yesterday, Oct 20, 2010 for James Eakin Futurity Sale yearlings. I started the morning in the Weatherford/Brock area with two different stops, 2 and 7 yearlings respectively, then drove through Lipan to the Houston Ranch. This trip took me through the Brazos River Valley. As I drove into the Houston Ranch the road changed to gravel and the landscape to a hilly dry land with fewer trees. As I drove into the Whitehouse division camp I found James Barten practicing roping steers. I had arrived a little earlier than I had expected. I photographed 8 yearlings in the greenest field around. While they were going for another yearling I photographed this old wagon next to a Horse Trailer and truck with horses tied waiting until we finished the shoot.

Last Thursday (Oct 14) I photographed an auction and put together this 30 sec video slide show along with audio recorded on with my camera.

Thursday at the DMA Center for Creative Connections: Jewelry Making

Thursday Night in the new updated Center for Creative Connections, we were given an assignment to Take a square box and make it into something totally different. The photos below are what I came up with. After this short project, we moved into the studio and discussed Creative Process with Jill Foley, the creator of the "Living Room," the temporary Center for Creative Connection space while the other was being reinstalled.
