Don’t Laugh at Point & Shoots!

Posted on: May 8th, 2011 2

I’ve been really concentrating on getting better at lighting my subjects. As a matter of fact, that subject has been consuming me. So on a recent Saturday I took a break and went to see a good friend and his daughter perform at a “caberet” style event…..he on piano a and his daughter singing. I thought of taking my Canon 5D full-frame camera, a speedlight, a shoot-through umbrella, and a light stand. This is a pretty light and easy-to-use setup, so it seemed like a no-brainer. But wait! I hadn’t seen my friend and his family for a long time, and I started thinking, “Do I REALLY want to turn this into a shooting session?”
