Today Galway.com have kindly published some more of my shots from around Galway city. This time the photos are of the GTI Fashion Fiesta that I took a couple of nights ago in the Meyrick Hotel on Eyre Square where the next big things in fashion showcased their stylings and wares.
Shooting this kind of event was one hell of a challenge due to my own dislike of using flash photography and some pretty scant lighting provided by the ornate though not very useful chandelier lighting around the room.
I used primarily my canon 50mm f1.8 prime lens opened up wide with some pretty slow shutter speeds and I also relied on the occassional flashes of other photographers’ flash guns to light up the models.
The results are far from perfect, but I sure prefer them to the flat lighting that hotshoe flash photography usually provides at these kind of events.
