Mafia Party Photoshoot

October 11, 2009

A few weeks ago we (the photo club in my university) were asked to do a photoshoot for a mafia party that would be held in one of the schools dorms, the Roggeveenhof. We of course agreed though in all honesty none of us (there were 4) knew what we were doing.  It was a shot that would be taken at 20:00 at night with the only natural lighting being the streetlights. This meant we had to use our cameras flashes As none of us had any form of external lighting.

I decided to try using a technique called slow sync flash. Which allows me to combine the flash from my camera with the natural lighting, the street lights.  Having not done this before i was unsure of how high i would need to crank the ISO to get decent unblurred shots. It turns out i needed to go with an ISO of 1250 which in the circumstances actually somewhat added to the photos i feel.
