I took this photo while working on a self-generated photo story for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper where I worked for over 12 years. I thought I’d post it first on my new blog because it’s a fairly unique moment. I spent a lot of time with the Governor during her first 100 days in office. After gaining her trust, I was allowed to travel on a small private plane with her as she traveled back and forth to Yakima for government business.
Technical tip- Usually, it would be very difficult to get the inside and outside exposure correct but because there was a polarizing filter on the window, Mt. Rainier can be seen clearly. There is no photo manipulation in this photo, or any of my photos. If you were in this situation and there was no filter on the window, you would expose for the outside and use flash inside the plane-preferably bounced.
