Photographed the Commack Encore dinner dance last night. Always a lot of fun. As in past years, a bunch of scholarships were given out and there was lots of dancing plus raffles and lots of fun. I mean LOTS of fun.
For events like this I’m shooting with my Fuji XT-3 with a 16-55mm lens. It’s a crowed venue so you don’t need anything longer. The room lights can vary depending upon what’s going on but for the most part I’m set at ISO 2500, 1/160 sec. @ f/5.6. I have a Flashpoint R2 flash on the camera that I’m bouncing off the ceiling. Bouncing a flash off the ceiling or wall takes a little practice but it gives much better results than pointing the flash straight at your subject.
Congratulations to all the scholarship winners and best of luck to all the graduating seniors. And happy retirement to our four retirees!
That’s it for this post. Next up - the Long Island Softball Championship game.
