Estero Llano Grande State Park – Photography Nature Walk

A while back Sara and I invited her sister Mary and boyfriend Alex to a photography nature walk at Estero Llano Grande State Park in Weslaco, Texas. These are some of my top shots taken with my Fujifilm XH-1. If you know my work you know I am not a nature photographer but I have enjoying as of lately. 03.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-000303.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-000503.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-000703.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-674603.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-675903.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-677803.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-678603.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-681003.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-682503.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-683303.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-683703.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-685203.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-686203.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-689103.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-692503.17.20_Estero Llano Grande State Park_Fujifilm XH1_WEB_Ben Briones-6939

Butterfly Photography – An Old Obsession

Between 2008 and 2010 I use to have this obsession with photographing butterflies. I would take my camera to school at UTPA and hang around the small butterfly park next to the chapel and just wait around for butterflies to land on plants and flowers. Once I transferred to UT-Austin I would continue my obsession capturing pictures of butterflies on my spare time or when I needed to have a chill moment. I remember walking around with my headphones full blast playing Sigur Rós and just getting lost in the moment looking for butterflies to photograph. Here are some shots I found in my old hard drive. Butterfly2Butterfly3Butterfly4
