Today I am helping Anne from First Look Photography shoot the portraits for a military ball in Warrensburg, MO. We will start shooting at 17:30 and last most of the evening. We will not be printing on site, so that is a bonus. It’s a lot more work to do that, and I am not convinced that the quality of on sight printing is really what the professional photographer wants out there with their name on it. Now I realize that the quality that I have seen may not be the norm, but I have not been impressed.
With all if that being said, how do you shoot couples at a ball? We will have our background set, and are going to use strobes for our lighting. My Sekonic light meter will give us the settings for the lights and my Expo Disk will help set the white balance and we should be good to start making memories.
