40th Ward Sustainability Pop-Up Event at Gross Park

Maggie O'Keefe, candidate for 40th Ward Alderman, asked me to shoot an event she was putting on and inviting MWRD candidate Cam Davis to speak. Cam Davis is very impressive. We are lucky to have him as a public servant. And Maggie is always great. Another great citizen working to make our City better.

It was a challenging shoot because the background was in bright sunlight and foreground was in shadows. I took a lot of photos and a lot of test shots. I got a few good ones. I confess I do not catch the name of the dark haired woman in the photos but the photos of her turned out very nice.

I played around with the white balance a little going for different looks. The photo of the woman at the door of the field house just presented itself. So I took it. I hope the composition works. This was definitely a learning experience for me. Next time I will shoot faster shutter speed and try to get a little more crisp look.

I hope you like the photos.
