Dennis Daugaard, governor of South Dakota, Sara Florey, McKenzie Kamrath

It’s not everyday you get to photograph the governor of South Dakota – or pose in a photo of the governor, for that matter.

Sara F and McKenzie K, students in the Lake Area Technical Institute Photo/Media program, were covering the annual Governor’s Scholarship Luncheon. At the end of the event, I asked for a quick photo and they all graciously cooperated. The subjects are good in this photo, though it violates some rules. Don’t tell anyone, but I did some digital manipulation and journalistic photos shouldn’t do that. The background could have been better. 🙁 Why do I make rookie mistakes? Because I am a learner, too. . . .
