Chapel Hill

These were very difficult shots. They were taken at Mansion 462. I was told to get a few shots of the band, but the light was very low. I also wanted to get a picture of the audience around the band, which was near impossible. I had to do a long exposure and hope no one moved. Eventually I tried using two flashes in tandem, one pointed at the band and one pointed at the crowd. The backs of people's heads can only be so interesting. When taking pictures of the band it was tough preserving the interesting blue light that was cast on them. I could use flash and lose the blue light, or take a long exposure and have a blurry picture. I used flash, but played with the color temperature in the camera.
