I know I should have had my wife hold the flash to the side for me. This was taken in a crowded hallway after a choir concert. C&C welcome. In case I sneak there for another try.

Not a lot of commenting in this forum, and it seems a bit sad. Anyway, does this seem to tilt down to the right to you (anybody)? I think the lighting is pretty good considering. Yeah, if you put the Wife to work it might be better, but it might have washed out the reflection in the locker doors.../

So this begs a question. What camera did you use here, and how are you able to move the flash if you would have?

Thanks, yes I noticed the lockers on the right side don't look straight.
I used my 50D (the exif file is still intact I think). I was thinking I should have used the ST E2 and stuck the 580EX in my wife's hand on had her stand to the right side. This also would have helped to keep people from walking or getting too close. I am just trying to figure out how to get the best quick shot on the fly.
I do want to get her a few photos from her school. I just had a thought I bet if I volunteer to take a group shot of the choir (using mono lights) I could get some nice shots of her afterward. I do appreciate the comments.

Yeah, but if you thought about this before shooting, and had everyone in place, it wouldn't be a snapshot anymore, right?

You got me there! I love to shoot on the fly and I still would like to get good results.

It does tilt to the right, but I thought it was offset with her leaning in the opposite direction. It looked balance to me until someone mentioned the tilt. Not a bad pic.

Nice capture

This pic would work fine in the "Portraits" forum

I just love taking photos at school events
