I had the pleasure of photographing South Shore Hospital’s marathon team on a training run last month for the hospital’s charitable foundation, a longtime client of mine.  The assignment was simply to photograph tight action of the team members running, with the goal of getting enough photos to make a 30 second TV spot.

Knowing that this year’s marathon is a special one, I wanted to do more.  In addition to the running photos, I set up a lit group photo in the few minutes I had available before the start with my studio lighting on a rock that made a quick natural riser.  It’s just one Einstein on a beauty dish, but it was enough to fill the shadows and allow the early morning sun to filter through the trees instead.  Here’s the result:
