One Light Carols…

by on Dec.26, 2013, under Life, Photography

Every year our local school has an evening of Christmas Carols – it’s a fun night with food and music and great company. It’s also a chance for me to do my normal photographic duties of all the various events (like the bands playing, the various childrens choirs and so on) but also do some candid portraiture with the children dressed up and having fun.

This year I took my SB-900 flash, a softbox and a lightstand with me – and setup an impromptu one light setup out on the oval just on sunset looking to take some images with the strobe to freeze motion (some of the kids even wanted to do group jumping in the air and so on :)), with a little colour in the sky but the rest falling to darkness.

The colour didn’t last very long (even when I started pushing the ISO) but the kids thought is was a bit of fun (most only gave me one take when I walked up with all my crap so it was a little hit and miss with the lighting :)) and some of them turned out pretty well

Here is one with my eldest and youngest daughters
