Nikon D3

Capture Date/Time:May 1, 2008 23:55
Aperture/Shutter Speed: f/4 | 1/30 sec
Focal Length: 14 mm
ISO: 6400

Photobloggers Archie from Whateverland and Josh from Continuum went with me last night to Delilah's on Lincoln, a local tavern, as "official photographers" for a lingerie fashion show. Yes, you read that right, a lingerie fashion show. In a bar. The show featured the Rocket Queen Clothing line, and the scantily clad models made their way down the center of the bar, went upstairs, and came back down to a small stage. It's always nice being an official photographer at these things because the models stop and pose for you... This was one of the most challenging shoots I've done because the bar was so dark. It was impossible to focus and my autofocus assistant light on my flash was not working. So I eyeballed it and am pretty happy with the results.

Oh, so how did the shots turn out? Did you want to see some of them? Well, I spent a long time debating whether or not I should post one of them. I decided against changing from a "G" rated blog to a "PG-13" rated one. But I have no problem showing a few of them outside the normal posting stream. So here you go. And here, too!

Please let me know what you think!

First time I ever walked into a bar where I didn't get carded! I love how this shot makes it seem like there was a ton of light in there...when it was really just batcave dark!
