Nothing beats a chill afternoon with a baby, a dog and a wonderful mom making the yummiest smelling dinner in the kitchen. So glad I got to sit in on an afternoon of a good friend and take some photos of her life! ♥️ Never knew how much I would love lifestyle photography. There is something magical about watching people live their life and even more magical that I can catch a quick moment from it for them to keep forever. Thats insane to me! Haha excuse me while I geek out 🤓, don’t forget to book your next session with me 👌🏻✌🏻 ______________________________________________________________  #photographer #lubbocktx #lubbockphotographer #lookslikefilm #backyardphotography #lookslikefilm #model #portraitphotography #lifestylephotography  #familyportraits #goldenhourshoot #maternityshoot #momtobe #expecting #familymaternityshoot #westtexasphotographer  #summer #momandbaby #mommyandme #fresh48 #lifestyle #lifestylephotography #cooking #cookingphotography  #goldenhour #familyshoot #memories #snapshot #sony #sonya7iii #sigma

I left my phone unattended for 2 minutes. Dave kindly captured the light on the tree in the backyard. I cropped it and did some minor editing.  #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #teamwittemann  #lovewittemannstyle #backyardphotography #mkesummer #hellomilwaukee #bestblockever

I loooooove photographing nature. And to be honest, I should go outside more. Just for a walk to it doesn’t matter where and just enjoy nature, silence, peace, thoughts. I don’t live in a giant rainforest or in some crazy sierra, but even here, nature can be beautiful. What am I saying, even your freaking backyard is gorgeous. That’s where I shot this picture. ⁣

The kill..
The ruthlessness of nature, and yet maintaining balance. Beings in nature ONLY take what they NEED, unlike humans, who are ONLY dictated by GREED. 
As I photograph this game of patience, precision, surgical strike, i understand one golden rule..... mother nature and the universe provides for everyone’s need , not everyone’s greed. Wherever you are in your journey, enjoy it. It’s perfect, it’s timely, it’s ripe with life. Anticipation causes anxiety, retrospective is not the current perspective. Live it up.

Van Gogh...no? I achieved this effect with a free app called Painnt. It helps to have a great image before you add to the app's filters.

I grew my own sunflowers this year! The best part was always seeing them when I looked out my kitchen window.

As you can see, if you scroll down to some older posts, my hummingbird photos are getting better. It took a lot of practice and a lot of throw away shots but I think I finally found the best way to up my chances for some great shots. Here’s what I do. 
I sit my chair about 8 feet from the nearest bush that they come to often. I look though the camera and zoom in to various flowers around the bush, taking note of what the backgrounds look like. There’s going to be a few bad ones, like a fence or shed or feeder pole. So I move my chair around until I have more nicer backgrounds than bad ones. This ups my chances of a great shot. This is also the time to get my camera settings ready. 
I use a @canoneosr with a @canon100400mml lens zoomed in to 400. 
Partial metering. AF expanded (9 points) placed in the center, servo mode. This, because the metering is center so I focus on the bird in the center and make changes based on the bird. Also, it’s easier to chase the bird around in the center of the view finder. Shutter no slower than 1/1000. Some times 1/800 will work. Anything slower I find gets motion blur, since they move so fast. ISO auto, max ISO set to 1600. Dark days manual at 2000. f6.3 - f/9, but @ f/6 make sure the head is in focus. Mostly use f/8. Exposure comp. down 1/3 - 1, this way I can bring it up in post and not have the birds white neck feathers blown out. 
I will go over editing in another post, this one getting too long, but at least you have a starting point. Please let me know what you think and if you try this. I’d love to see what you get.

Who would’ve ever guessed that a slinky could both still amuse me at 21 years old and help me take an awesome picture!?!?

One of two favorites from today’s backyard real life.  I posted a photo earlier of me with the dog, and the camera, add in the next door neighbors yard full of SCREAMING kids, another neighbor burning brush and my idea of a quiet Sunday was anything but that. I refused to let real life change my plans to practice photographing hummingbirds today.  This image looks like a tropical sunset.  The background in this photo is actually the sunset shining on the light colored roof. .
