Shorthorn Shots of the Week 3/6

Last week was an unusually lucky week for me with wildart, or features in some circles. I met alot of interesting people around campus and overall felt pretty good about what I was shooting. It seems like the great weather we've been having lately got everybody out and enjoying the campus a little more. I'm still trying to figure out baseball, not my forte when it comes to sports photography, but I feel like I'm progressing game by game. I shot the Military Science Hall of Honor induction ceremony and experienced the dedication that many ex-Mavericks have to they're military duties. Keeping with experiencing new things, I'm trying to do more video for The Shorthorn and had the opportunity to shoot the Special Events Center Groundbreaking on Friday. It was the first time I really got to shoot with my 5D and 7D side by side. Overall it was a great experience and I look forward to using this versatile setup in the future. This coming week I will be covering the Southland Conference Basketball Tournament in Katy, Texas, so check out for updates on my basketball work daily. Hopefully, if all the equipment cooperates, there will be some multimedia to go with the images featuring the seniors of both teams. Stay tuned.

Nursing junior Olivia Anderson, left, and her fellow nursing students lay out in the sun and relax Thursday outside of the Smart Hospital after finishing a workshop and getting out of class early. They said that they wanted to take advantage of the great weather while it lasts. The National Weather Service forecasts the rest of the week to be mostly sunny with temperatures in the high sixties.

Industrial engineering sophomore Samuel St. Martin leaps off of a trash can and scales a wall outside of the Fine Arts Building on Tuesday while doing a parkour workout with industrial engineering sophomore Michael Mount, not pictured. Parkour is the physical discipline of training where one adapts their movements to the environment. St. Martin and Mount are members of the new parkour club at UTA and soon hope to start group workouts two times a week. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)

Freshman infielder Preston Beck (5) slides into second base as Cougars second baseman Dane Nielsen leaps while attempting to tag him out Thursday during the Mavericks’ win over BYU at Clay Gould Ballpark. Beck was safe at second and later scored on a single by Chad Comer in the bottom of the second inning. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
