My evening spent shooting the first annual Community Star Awards Dinner and Concert was very fun and successful. Of course, I was exhausted afterwards. I'm still convinced I must be tapping into some part of my body that only activates when I'm shooting. I always feel like I've run a marathon, but it's because I'm on my feet constantly throughout the event trying to capture genuine moments as well as traditional portraiture. The shot above is one of my favorites from the evening. The Tivoli Student Union is filled with great rooms with wonderful architecture. Turnhalle, Room 250, is no exception. I used a wide angle lens to capture this storytelling image and dragged the shutter just a wee bit while handholding to get as much of the ambient light as possible. A pop of flash was able to illuminate the magnificent skeletal structure of the ceiling.
My client was very happy with the results. She said she thought the photos were beautiful...that's music to my ears. Here are a few more of my favorites from the evening.
