So my first hobby (which does make me money!! :-)) is DJing. Last night I worked a party and took the camera along with me. I managed to get the attached shot (well amongst many others!) but I kind of liked this one. I used shutter priority with a flash and a 2.5 second exposure... it was something for me for fun but also just playing around and thought I would share...

So does anybody else take club shots? I just love the way that the lights fly around the room and off the dancers bodies....

I dont' take club shots per se.

Nice shot!

Maybe better to blur the background a little more. The window frames in the backgrond are a little distracting.

You could probably study those French artists who painted the French bohemia club scenes in the late 1800's, and infuse that style into your shots.

Thanks for the comment. To be honest I wouldnt have thought to look at paintings for inspiration - will check them out...

The background... am not sure what I can do about that as I have to use a long exposure for the blurring... also I dont have any choice of lens as I am on a fixed thing.

Appreciate your comments.

i think its a rather cool shot.. as one that enjoys the club scene.. i think you have captured the energy quite well... i would keep experimenting with this type of shot.. i mean you are there already, you might as well take a few snaps while dj'n.. experiment with different exposure lengths, different flash techniques, and compositions... could be a fun little project while you are at work anyways..
