An attempt at event photography.
Posted By: Warped, 11-17-2008, 06:47 PM

These were taken on Halloween at the Voodoo Lounge in Northbridge (Perth) at the 3rd Annual Halloween Fetish Ball.

Tried ISO 200, 400 and 800, custom WB, Flash WB, Auto WB, with and without flash, most inside but some outside under a very yellow street light ... but every time I got a setting that looked OK the lights went and changed! Most shots were ISO 800, tungsten or Auto WB, no flash and all hand held at around 1/10th to 1/40th

Oh well, turning to B&W helped a fair bit but they're still very noisy and not sharp - showing off a couple out of interest anyway.



More of these have been put up in a gallery here if anyone is interested in seeing more:

I think you did extremely well, especially given the circumstances you describe. Did you shoot in RAW? That would ease your pain a bit since it makes it easier to do WB corrections after you get home.

The dancer/model in the 2nd and last pics was very cool and loved posing for the camera - hopefully I'll bump into her again next time I'm back there and arrange a "proper" shoot with her.
