Remember me telling you about my fabulous friend Jalene? And that we were shooting prom together? If not, pay attention!
Prom was Saturday and I must say, it was so much fun! I attended the same school but we weren't allowed to have proms because of an old will, a man of many beliefs, and a church. It's too much to go into now. We had banquets. They were fun...but now I know what I was missing.
Jalene handled the posed pictures and I shot candids. I fought off and on with my external flash, but finally when all the lights were turned off for dancing (except some strobe lights, don't worry) I got it. But what I found out about high schoolers dancing is, they dance toward the center of the room. I have a lot of pictures of behinds. And the two times I pushed through to the middle? It was dangerous! I still got some good shots though. Jalene on the other hand? Not many people wanted posed. Sad really. Those that did didn't have money with them. From what we've heard about the previous photographers, people weren't impressed. Hopefully we can build trust and show them how awesome we are, and by the Fall Ball (that we also get to shoot), they'll know we rock!
I could share some of my favorite pictures from the evening, but instead I wanted to share the most popular one.
