After ten days or so of landscapes, it’s time to switch gears. For the next week, I’m going to be posting a few of my favorite recent portraits. Most of these will be formal in the sense that they were taken during a specific portrait shoot but I’ll likely throw in a couple of candids too.
To start the ball rolling, here is trombonist Lauren Casey-Clyde who I had the pleasure of photographing at the Blanton Museum of Art last November. The Texas State Capitol makes a nice out-of-focus background in this shot taken 45 minutes or so after sunset.
