REAP Food Group recently published their annual report covering work in 2016. I was happy to volunteer and take their staff photo. Download a digital version of their annual report from REAP's website.
REAP Food Group is a great nonprofit organization that connects food producers, consumers, businesses and restaurants and even schools to grow our local healthful, just and sustainable food system. They are a driving force in the movement to get healthier food options for kids in our schools and they are a go-to resource if you want to know which restaurants are serving locally-sourced food.
I took this photo on the top floor of Madison's downtown public library. As someone who is new to digital photography, I always learn new things every time I pick up a camera or work with people. This was a great experience and I learned how to communicate with a group to get them posed, how to work with natural light, experiment with manual and auto settings and how to make adjustments in color and editing in post-production.
Even a few months after taking this photo I have a better understanding of how to use my camera to improve this shot (moving the f-stop up a tick may have allowed the last person in line to be in sharper focus), but I'm proud of this photo and am honored that they used it in their publication.
