Umpire David Baker, from Geneva, talks with coaches on the infield before a baseball game between Palatine and Rolling Meadows junior high school players. When I got this assignment to illustrate the shortage of umpires in kids baseball leagues, this is close to the image that I envisioned and hoped to find. I underexposed the frame to silhouette the fence and the people and make the clouds have more contrast. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

I used a slower shutter speed to capture the speed of a neon pink clad runner zoom past during the second annual Naperville Woman's Half Marathon and 5K at North Central College on April 23, 2017. A photographer can use slower shutter speeds to capture a feeling of motion in their still images and conversely use a faster shutter speed to freeze that perfect moment. Since the runner was moving fast I was able to hand hold the camera with a shutter speed of 1/20 of a second. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
