24th July 2011 – Party Hard
Yesterday I confessed the feeling I had to get better at shooting in low light and that I wasn’t too comfortable about photographing people I don’t know very well.
This image is a compromise on several levels.
Firstly it was taken at the same birthday party I mentioned yesterday. It qualifies for today because I took it at 00:16 (this morning).
Second, the room conditions were a lot darker than this image might lead you to believe. This is because I adjusted the lighting levels using editing software. The compromise was a photo with more grain than I would have liked.
Third and finally, I aimed my camera at the large mirror that positioned behind the DJ’s. Yes, what you are looking at is almost entirely a reflection.
So this is one way of managing my weaknesses, while I learn how to overcome them.
