After a hard day in the office, it is always nice to get out and to do something worthwhile. This evening, this was fulfilled by my latest visit to Eclipse Gymnastics in Rushden and the task – why, to photograph their annual awards evening, of course and to capture some more great memories for the kids, teenagers and their families.
With the normal tough lighting in the room and the zoom lens working overtime (I must get used to moving myself, but this was not overly easy this evening) my task was to keep my on-camera flash settings correctly adjusted to balance the light and match the variable zoom being used. I think, and hope, that I got it about right and the lack of throw away images confirm that.
The evening began with balloons on the floor and these are always a huge temptation for kids to go just a little crazy and the guys at Eclipse are no exception. With a brief to get the awards, the camera came out early and I captures just a few images from the pre-presentation part of the event. It was then on to the presentations and then a mad dash home to get the images processed and online.
As I type this, the gallery is uploading and it should be live real soon.
Thank you to Eclipse Gymnastics for inviting me back for another of their great events celebrating a fantastic group of gymnasts and individuals.
The gallery is available on www.m4photo.co.uk and it’s open to all Eclipse Gymnastics members and their families with the usual username and password.
