Day 201 of 365 – The Moment

One of the hardest parts about nightclub photography for me is capturing candid photos of people enjoying themselves, without them noticing me. I am shooting in a dark, smokey, night clubs – I have to use a bright flash, and I have to be very close to my subjects to produce a decent photo, which makes me very easy to spot. In addition to all that, most people do not have a very flattering facial expression when dancing their asses off. Sometimes there is this very small moment in between the “rage face” and the “posed face” where the person looks like they are in-between the two poses, something I like to call the “oh face”.  I’d like to think it makes for a timeless, organic, and emotional capture that can be looked back on as a reminder of the subjects younger days.
