Sandy’s Medals

Sandysmedals (1 of 1)-2

My friend Sandy recently won three medals in the Special Olympics and I take this as an opportunity to congratulate her. She is a huge fan of professional sports teams and professional athletes — her favorite topics of conversation. In this photo she is being congratulated by another friend, Vester Marshall, a former small forward for the Seattle Sonics. Her favorite colors are blue and green — conveniently the colors of both of her favorite teams — the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders.

This photo is a composite of two main photos and then the result of several modifications. I shot the original photo inside at the Seattle Athletic Club and then combined it with a stock photo of a track stadium. I changed the color of the track from blue to green, added people in the stands, made the sky a little bluer, added drama streaks (a recently learned technique in a seminar by Janko Williams), added shadows for the people, and added a little bling to Sandy’s medals!
