I was asked to photograph the delegates and speeche makers at the 50th anniversary celebration of Draeger Medical UK.
The event was held at Shendish Manor near Hemel Hempstead. The main challenge at an event like this is to produce some interesting photos. Ideally you want the speaker looking up - not easy if they are reading from prepared speeches, looking animated and looking as if they are saying something. To get all three can be a challenge particularly at low light where a fast shutter speed is required.
I worked with camera mounted flash to start with but this only produced washed out shots that had no background colour. So trusting in the excellent high ISO abilities of the Nikon D700 I removed the flash and worked with ambient light. I was much happier with the results.
