I have to give Eric props for flexibility. His shoot got rained out for the most part, and we had to get creative indoors with less than perfect lighting. A California native, he is a fellow member of the film department at Baylor and I have to say I have a lot of respect for the guy. He is genuine (even if he can come off a bit strong in the personality department) and hard working. He has managed to keep his grades afloat, write original work, and keep a full time job during the last few years of his undergrad. He aspires to write out of New York City once he gets a substantial base of material, and I don't doubt for a minute that he will make it. Him and I definitely had a few times where our strong personalities clashed (but most of that had to do with sharing early morning classes), but always managed to get along at the end of the day.
I really enjoyed detail shots with this round of seniors. Tassels and senior rings have so much texture to them. It's especially great when some brings a personal item to pair with them. Eric's cap makes nice, contrasting background to his detail shots. This is the last of my senior sessions for this year, but I look forward to returning to Baylor next Spring to capture more fellow Bears. (Sic 'em!)
