It's always cool news when Sen. Patty Murray's staff wants digital copies of your images and they're thinking of making one of them a poster for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's office. Asked Aaron to make them print-ready in Photoshop this afternoon, but first I made the mistake of forgetting to turn the added grain off in Lightroom again. Aw well- still really happy with how they've turned out. Shot in March, these were the first formal group portraits I've lit with off-camera flash on location. Pictured are nine U.S. Senators and three Democratic Senate candidates. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., was also present but missed these first three takes. In the images below are hosts Sonya Campion and her husband Tom, the founder of Zumiez, who was proposing to Sen. Barbara Mikulsk (D-Md.). Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., remarked that it was the smoothest step-and-repeat she's participated in. Woo!
