Rose (my good friend and personal trainer) got a last-minute request from Shape Magazine on Friday for more photos with an iconic landmark. Of course, the deadline was Monday, so we had to set something up ASAP. This morning, Rose, Justin, and I headed out to Kerry Park at the Seattle Center to try for some images of Rose exercising in front of the Space Needle. Imagine our surprise when Easter Sunday dawned sunny after three miserable, rainy days and a forecast for more of the same. Now we’re back to doom and gloom, but these photos serve as a nice reminder that I can sometimes leave the house without getting wet.
Here’s one of my favorites from this morning… If I’d had more forewarning, time to plan, and a shoot budget, I would probably have rented a tilt-shift lens to compensate for the foreshortening, but I still love how this series came out.
