I’m a spoiled brat. I’ve used available light for everything. I took 169 images and only had 5 that I even considered being assignment worthy. Single Flash was extremely challenging. The first challenge was holding the flash in such a way that would show up well on camera. I thought it would quite easy to point and shoot the light, but it was the exact opposite. The first time I was using flash, I thought my calculations were correct and my image ended up being extremely overexposed. After learning the settings and playing with TTL (also known as ‘try tougher…looser’) I found that most of my images were really lucky. I need to continue to shoot to really get a grasp on flash. Take a look at my first and second attempts of direct and bounce flash. Let me know if you like!
The wonderful women of Zeta Phi Beta (ΖΦΒ) Sorority Inc. allowed me to follow the Neos of Winter 2008 during the days that led up to their probate. Below this post you will find a similar photo project I did with the Deltas at MU, but unlike the wonderful Delta event I knew this event was going to happen a few days in advance which made me jump out my seat at the possibility of going deeper into the preparation process.
