An Evening Run

Late last week I went out with Elizabeth Hardwick to get some running photos with her new Five.Ten trail running shoes.  The setting and light was perfect, and the cold temperatures kept us moving quickly.  We took about 50+ photos in 15 minutes or so.  I think this one was the best from the bunch.

Although the running shots were fun and turned out great, the sunset from above the city is always spectacular.  Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my graduated density filters since I thought I was just doing action shots.  Luckily I’ve been playing with more photoshop tools, especially the shadow/highlight tools.  I find if you shoot a photo that has a larger range of light, if you overexpose the bright spots, and then reduce the brightness of these areas with the highlight tool, you can gets some really good images.

Enjoy!
