I tried a few different things with the Ms. Basketball portraits this year, and then kinda screwed up and didn't listen to myself. After talking with the reporter about her and her style of play, it seemed like something that was more subdued and honest would be more fitting than super glossy lit with really bright color. At the time I wasn't really convinced enough myself if I liked it so I didn't want to show it to an editor and then have to fight for it, if I wasn't on board myself....kinda kicking myself now, because I think it would have been a nice change for readers. Dunno if they'd have let me get away with a black and white photo on the sports cover though. Below are the two I submitted instead. Lemme know what you think if you feel like it.
