Photo 3 – the ultimate party

This photo was taken in Tuscany when I went there with the Ultimate Frisbee Club. It was a beach party, and was a really great experience to be partying in the open air. I was playing around with the modes on my camera (think this was taken in "night landscape" mode).

I like this picture because although it's not particularly clear, it captures the energy and enjoyment of the evening, and the outline of the palm trees and umbrellas help to show that it's outdoors. I had it as my desktop background for a while and it makes me smile! :-)

  1. Now that one I do really like! I think you're right on the camera mode – the flash hasn't fired, and the exposure was at least a second. Looks like there was some strobe lighting too.

    I've used the same technique a few times in the Union. Sometimes I force the flash to fire, for a different effect (try it – if you can't force it manually, your camera might have a mode called something like "night portrait"), but when I don't, my results look very similar to yours. The pics below – hope you don't mind me me posting them in your comments box – are from the last TopB of last year.

  2. Looks great Gem, some real energy going on. Just what you'd expect from an ultimate frisbee party!
