Daily life in North Korea
The next time you feel jealous of pro baseball players, remember this: They still have to do photo day. In major league camps in Florida and Arizona, that one bit of awkwardness you left behind in grade school remains a rite of spring.
Baltimore Sun Media Group photographer Jen Rynda has a reputation for her sports portraits, or “sportraits,” as she calls them. When local high school athletes are selected as either a player to watch for the upcoming season, or the editors’ choice for player of the year, Jen is sent to spend some time with that athlete to photograph them. She often tries to capture them in a way that is not only artistic, but also shows off their athletic prowess.
The set-up is elaborate, the process tedious, and Jen is meticulous. So, we thought it would be interesting to time-lapse her setting up and shooting athletes at the end of the spring 2014 season.
Click through the gallery to see some of her sportrait shoots over the past two years, and watch the video below to see how the magic happens.
