Texas Tech Transfer Ambassador Retreat by Jordan Ohlmann

Toby and I had the opportunity this last weekend to accompany my wife and her group of student leaders on their yearly leadership retreat. This year we travelled Lone Tree Bible Ranch in the mountains just outside of Capitan, New Mexico. It was a great facility with great food and lots of fun activities. The weather was incredible, a very welcome break form the 40-50 mph dust storms in Lubbock the few days prior to leaving. Knowing that we were going to be in a place away from city light pollution I also tried my hand at photographing the Milky Way for the first time. It's still a little early in the year to get a good shot of the galactic center, but I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.

Crossfit has been a big part of my brother and sister in law's lives for a few years now. It's something they're constantly talking about, so I knew that the 2017 Crossfit Open had started. I wanted to get some experience shooting indoor sports action, so I reached out to their gym, Crossfit Paladin, to see if they would let me swing by the next workout. I had a really great time and got several shots I'm very pleased with. Here is a selection of some of my favorites. The full 200+ image Gallery can be viewed by clicking on the link below

The Lights by Jordan Ohlmann

The Lights came to Lubbock this weekend, and I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph it. Despite high winds a few days before, and local concerns about fire dangers, the event went on as planned. Everyone received a Chinese fire lantern that they can customize with a personal message. When the organizers gave the go ahead, the lanterns were lit and floated off dreamily into the night sky with Hallelujah serenading over the PA system.

Fun in the Sun by Jordan Ohlmann

This past weekend we went out to a local park to enjoy a beautiful warm February day. I wanted to experiment a bit with some off camera flash while Toby was swinging. I didn't quite get the shot I was looking for, but Toby had a blast.
