Day 394

ISO 100, 33mm, f/4.0, 1/160 sec

Day 394 - The finishers

My third assignment for my portrait class is to shoot a portrait of two people that communicates something about the relationship of these two individuals.

Since both of my daughters have finished in the Portland Marathon, I thought it would be really fun to have them running in the foreground of the skyline at sunset.

Believe me, this was nothing short of ambitious. I discovered quickly that the fading light is a pain in the butt to work with when you have moving targets.

The girls rocked it though. Karen had flash patrol while I made the girls run the same mini-course over and over again.


  1. That' great. They must be patient models.

  2. That is a great setup and the skyline is gorgeous!

  3. I like the lighting and the shadows cast by your models. I think the background is nice too.

    Looks like you have a very patient in-house models. That makes the job easier, doesn't it?

  4. Beautiful colors in the background and the girls look great!
    What a well thought out portrait. Great lighting. It all came together so nicely.

  5. Super capture! beautiful lighting and wonderful smiles on the girls! You rocked it as well!

  6. Great set up and capture. Great models too.
