I spent election night last week in Glen Ellyn with the crew from Bill Foster's Campaign. I arrived to the Village Links in Glen Ellyn a bit early hoping to catch some Foster supporters hanging out and passing the time.
When I arrived I found only the organizers there...not exactly the scene I was hoping for.
I spent a few minutes walking around the clubhouse when I saw through a window that the results from the Republican primary were on a TV.
With the sun setting I knew the colors would be nice playing off the yellow light in the windows with the TV in the corner of the frame.
Like any good political figure Foster arrived about an hour after he was scheduled to have been at Village Links.
Once he walked in the room he started shaking hands with everyone there.
Knowing this was the shot I wanted, I was right next to him the whole time, as well as another photographer.
After a few handshakes I knew I had the photo I need and decided to play around a bit with a slower shutter speed.
Dragging the shutter allowed me to capture the flash of the other photographer, freezing Bill, while blurring the background.
