New York Musical Theatre Festival Closing Party

My friend Steven Rosen is the official photographer of the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF). He was unable to photograph the closing party and asked me to fill in for him. It was held at the Sky Room, high above Times Square with terrific views of Manhattan. The weather cooperated, so the outdoor lounge was a popular spot. The lighting was a challenge, both indoors and out. I shot in aperture priority at f/4 with my strobe in ETTL mode. Holding the camera as steady as possible allowed me to collect enough light from the background while exposing the subjects properly. Any blur from subject or background movement wasn’t a problem, as it was appropriate for the festive atmosphere.
