Un-planned Santa Shoot OPINIONS??




I am new with a new Canon Xsi with kit lens, no fancy lens to change to, with little time to learn my camera. I was asked to shoot candid shots at a Credit Union the night before. Most shots were on auto, but did try a few other setting. Just want your opinions.
No room to move. Light was over abundant and the background is what you see. Crowed room, with a lot of parents snapping pictures. What do you do in cases like these, where there is no choice of background, can't control the lighting and you hope to get a decent picture?
They must be happy, as they want me to do it again next Christmas, and hopefully I will be prepared next time. None of the pictures taken, were to be fixed, just shoot, take for prints that night, and drop off at the CU for the parents to pick up the next day.

Re: Un-planned Santa Shoot OPINIONS??

Mary, in the conditions you stated you did well.

The only way to improve is to use a flashgun & bounce off white ceiling or white wall. Even better is off camera flash, but now you are talking having some space & possibly someone to hold flash for you

Sometimes we have to make the best of what we have available
