This past Saturday night I was hired to photograph night life in downtown Los Angeles at the monthly event Mucho More at La Cita Bar. It was a fun filled night with plenty of party people getting crazy on the dance floor. Jaime Gee played a great set mixing so many genres but keeping such a great flow he had me dancing while I was shooting.
I was asked by a guy on the dance floor if I shoot film. I explained when I first started photography back in 1996 I shot with film but now I shoot digital. He told me he only shoots film and I told him that was great. I told my husband later that night and he was not impressed!
I was also asked if I shoot night life shots often. I treat it just like I would treat shooting a wedding reception or any event or party. Photograph people having fun and the story of the night will be told. I have such a great time photographing people having a great time, being a spy on the dance floor is key! That coupled with having the right camera and flash settings to set the party mood.
