Yesterday I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to photograph a Cure Kids charity auction organised by Jordan Mauger. The event was held at the JDV Bar in Merivale and was very well attended and should have raised on lot of money for the charity. I only learned of the event a few hours before it started when another photographer on my diploma course (Emily Maddock) put out a request for help to photograph the event.
The venue was quite challenging with lots of mirrors and dark brown walls, flash was unavoidable but the ceiling was white at least so some bounce flash was possible. We both had fun and learned a lot and I think the images we have created should be useful for the organisers. I spent most of the evening with either a 50mm or 102mm prime lens with the camera set to manual. I played with the shutter speed and flash exposure compensation to try and keep the images interesting and not too flash heavy.
