"Michael Oher, offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens, is photographed at McDonough School on Sept. 30, 2011, in Baltimore, Maryland."

Teamed up with Brian to shoot some pictures of Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher yesterday.

Things went very smooth and Oher is a friendly, laid back guy who was patient and open for anything we needed to shoot to make our client happy.

While we lit almost everything in a dramatic way, I liked the in between moments the best.

Most are used to seeing and thinking that football players are big, mean and intimidating. And while I tend to see that aggressive side of NFL players on the field when photographing the games, I liked this quite moment from the shoot because of that preconceived notion.

It's nice to know that these superstar, phenomenal athletes are human and have genuine quiet moments that we often don't get to see from the sidelines or stands.

Thanks again, Oher. Good luck the rest of the season.
