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.
