A&P 2nd attempt at DJ photos...

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, May 5, 2008.

  1. I have a friend who DJs, and offered to shoot some photos. I borrowed my friend's 580EX II. Used my Sigma 10-20, ISO 1600 TV 1/20th - 1/60th... 580EX II shot on E-TTL +2/3 to -1/3

    (Flash did not fire like I hoped, but I think it's a cool picture still)

    more foreground, less background
     
  3. It was a very very small space, I tried to get whatever shots I could of him in action, as opposed to the background...

    I more meant the light. The shitty background just kills it for me, even though I like what you captured of him.

    why shoot iso 1600 when you have a flash?

    try to shoot from his back so you can see the crowd he was DJing for.

    You could probably fix the flash over kill by turning your iso to around 800 ish..drop -3 stops and work your way up on your flash power so that everything is even.

    It's just going to be a lot of trial and error really. Even a rear-sync could work nicely here.
     

  11. I was going to do that, but 2 things... the place was really cramped, and also he was DJing a wedding... nothing impressive...

    Ah..well I don't think a cramped place really should render turning down your flash output , etc.. I don't know shit though. I've never shot a dj..just similar situations.:hs:
     
  14. I was using the built in diffuser, as compared to last time when I just bounced the flash on the ceiling... there was a small light setup for him, and I was always adjusting my TV and E-TTL settings... but I had fun, free drinks from two girls and they wanted to dance so why not? :)

    I also have those wierd distortions with my 10-20 at relaly wide, but PTLens can make a fairly good job at fixing it.
