Today was our office party and it was at a wonderful location to try my hand at photographing under really difficult conditions. Any suggestions on how to deal with similar conditions in the future would be most appreciated. There were a couple of times that I just gave up and couldn't figure out a way to do it.

On the walk to the building where we had the party I took this one. I thought the brick-work was interesting

This is about the best I could do - the Heisman is behind glass and there was no way to avoid spotlights and glass glare from all sides. I ended up leaving the light flare because it looks like he's pushing against it. I know that it isn't very good, but couldn't figure out how to improve it or take it better next time.

a polarizer would help a lot, though you'd lose a bit of shutter speed...

And just WHO boughta polarizerlast weekend?

"It'll probably be too dark for handheld photos." And WHO is a big proponent of "it's digital, take the picture anyway because it doesn't cost anything."

OK - everyone can have a big laugh at my expense today!

I really like this picture!!

The flare adds dramatism to the picture. It should not have the same impact without the ligth on the top and the flare.

Mtngal, They all look pretty good and a little tweaking in Photoshop would make them look even better ! Jim

Thanks for the complement. It was certainly an interesting photography exercise, and I've learned new things from it.

Jim - I thought about cloning out all the reflected lights in the third one, but one of the main reasons I took it was to show just how much glass and glare there was in the room. Oh, and I was showing off all those college national championship awards for all kinds of different sports - I thought the number was pretty impressive for one university.
