Went to the MVRHS junior prom on Saturday (probably could have gone incognito and worn my old prom dress, but I opted for standard photographer black instead). It was the first time since…I don’t even know when…that I’d actually used my flash for an assignment, and I was a little nervous about how things would turn out.
I lucked out, though, and arrived to find that the venue itself (the Beach Plum Inn in Menemsha) had low white ceilings—perfect for bounce flash. As an extra bonus, it was overcast (shocker!) that day, so I didn’t have to worry about shadows in the outdoor photos.
I stayed for the entire thing, from the pre-entry Breathalyzers to the announcing of king and queen, and am glad I did. The last photo was taken as Eva the prom queen was boarding the party trolley (party trolley! there were disco lights and fog on board!), and I very much like how it turned out. Hooray!
