One of the regular photographic requests I receive is to cover celebrations. Normally these are Birthday parties, family events and of course weddings, however this week I was asked to cover a celebration lunch for Tesco in Cheshunt.
The Quality Team test a range of Tesco’s most popular food products both in store and in a purpose built centre in Cheshunt. To recognise the work done, and to bid farewell to a number of team members who were moving on, a celebratory lunch was organised.
Although this shoot was relatively straight forward the event took place in a large room, which although well lit had florescent lighting which wasn’t really suitable for ambient light photography. So due to the nature of the shoot, the large number of people and the need to be mobile the only option was to resort to on-camera flash. On-camera flash is never ideal, however by using a Stoffen and bouncing the light off the ceiling I was able to create a pool of clean even white light to give some flattering informal portraits and “team” photos without the backgrounds becoming distracting.
