Re: Photographing a party in a limousine?

Jacques is right on the money!

I had for a long time an annual job that included shooting in a limo in the evening. It would have been easier during daytime! A dome/stoufen on the flash, I think I dialed down my flash exposure compensation slightly (-1/3 or -2/3 stops). Shoot in RAW. Heck, this was long ago enough that the first few years may still have been film! I don't think any of it was "great photography", but it told the story the client needed. Think "fun shots" and leave your love of technically perfect files behind.

This was for a magazine that had an annual contest were the winner got a free trip to Los Angeles and got to hang for the day with a specific famous person. The winners keep getting lower and lower class. Our last one was a meth addict and kept wetting himself. The magazine wisely decided there was no promotional value to the images or the contest anymore!
