Photog Phenomena

I finally went out and did something about my want to be a photographer. I volunteered to be the event photographer for Keep Denton Beautiful with their annual Tree- GiveAway event for Denton County Residents.

The organization is a local nonprofit affiliated with Keep America Beautiful, priding itself with making Denton a “more beautiful place to live.” The give away is to raise the percentage of foliage coverage in the community by providing 1,000 species of tree native to Texas.

So I wanted to showcase my first, real-life, O-em-gee moment I had this past weekend, and explain what is going on behind the camera. The cliché “A story through pictures.”

I can’t explain how much fun I had. After copious amounts of coffee, aimlessly wandering around the landfill and second guessing my choice to wake this early for my FIRST shoot, I got into the swing of things and enjoyed being the photographer.

To see more of my shots you can check me out on my online portfolio, right here!

Check out that killer sunrise. There’s perks to getting up at 5 a.m. on a Saturday. Kent, the volunteer coordinator, is explaining the schedule and delegating responsibilities.

Of coarse you have to get a little artsy-fartsy when getting some detail shots! Here are the goodie-bags participants got while picking up their tree.

In this ‘action’ shot, we have a volunteer helping move the leftover trees into the shade. Have to love that smiling face!

Volunteers double checked and triple checked tree pickup information.

How creative can you get with trees? I had about 100 photos JUST of these bad boys.

This photo was fun for me because I got to use Photoshop and erase the girl who was sitting on the pavement!

Loading up trees into participants cars get creative. Those baby trees are 5 ft. tall!
