the playboy at the peak<br>- bar mitzvah of hugo 4

I photographed Hugo  ‘s Bar Mitzvah at the Cafe Deco at the peak two weeks ago.  What a great party , and It looked like everyone was having a blast. Lots of surprise, performance, and emotion, can’t imagine how much time Hugo ‘s mother Belinda has spent preparing the party.

Here are the photos of this awesome party! Congratulations Hugo !!!

    Great shots, Simon.

    Could you share about how you arranged the lighting in this shoot (in conjunction with the location’s own lighting)? Say, did you set up constant light or flashes on 4 corners of the site?

    Thanks a lot.

    • yes. a few flashes are set up at different areas of the site.

        Thanks so much for your kind reply.

        I have no experience at that. Would it be disturbing to the function? Also, do you need to control which flash(es) to fire from your remote or you just let them fire altogether everytime?

        Sorry about the many questions.

        My most gratitude for your generous sharing.

        • flashes ‘re set up at different locations, depends on what (and where) the activities take place, and at where I am going to shoot the pic. experience tells, no hard rules.

          Yes, I ‘ll control which flash will fire, seldom fire altogether.

          IMHO, Not disturbing at all.

          you ‘re welcome.
