I absolutely love happy people.
A great place to find a lot of happy people is at a nightclub, and this kind of work can be elusive. However, if you can illicit quality images on a consistent basis, it can be a lucrative prospect.
Shooting in a club can be quite the test of your skills. Not only are you dealing with low-light conditions, but also fog machines, movement of your subjects, effects lighting and a tight time frame to capture the images. Things happen fast. As with any event, you have to be in the moment, sometimes predicting what will happen next (especially with lighting effects rotating around) to get the cool shot. It takes a lot of trial and error, and experimentation, but the end result can be quite amazing.
I don't usually use HDR in my editing process, but felt a few images from my most recent shoot warranted a different look. I'm not a fan of grain in my images, but it is tough to avoid when working with this effect. I also like to create different effects with the club lighting, mainly to use the 'light trails' to focus on a single subject. I also like to switch things up between flash and available light, longer exposure times, anything that seems to suit the event.
For any photographer stuck in a rut that has not tried nightclub photography, it is a super fun way to explore a different set of creative objectives.
And you may just have some fun, given the right DJ is in the house!
