I was going to put this in the "Most Artistic Non-Disney Pictures" Thread, but then I kept adding pictures and the post got to big. Last night my daughter Victoria was crowned Rockford DeMolay Sweetheart and I tried to get some nice artsy shots of her. The Master Councilors theme is Avengers, which is why you see the shield in some of the pictures.
I'm shooting with a little Sony Cyber-shot. I shoot in this room all the time and have a really difficult time of it. The walls and ceiling are boring, ugly even, the lighting is bad, and I usually have very little time available. I can't use a flash in here because I get big black shadows and the forward subject is always over exposed.
Here's what I shot of her last night. Please let me know if you have any tips, comments, ideas or suggestions.
