Improv Night

I was a working photog tonight - if you don't count a paycheck, or lack thereof.

Our church hosted a "Middle School Ball" for the 6-8 grades. I was there to take pictures of the kids off in one corner. I dragged along my AB800 in a softbox which worked like a charm.

Part of the night's entertainment was a local improv troupe that got the kids cracking up more than a few times. I used the time to play a little by setting up a single speedlight up in the balcony at about a 45 degree angle to the stage. I set it on 1/2 power zoomed all the way to 105mm with a home made grid spot. A little shutter-dragging and I could practice balancing flash and ambient lighting (wonderful flourescents).
