I spent a night with the good ladies (well mainly) of the County Sligo Flower Club. I was commissioned to photograph the wonderful arrangements created by Reverend William McMillan. Having done a few minutes research internet research on the gentleman in question it appears to have been quite a coup for the club to get him, well done ladies. Not expecting to be entertained while waiting to take the photos I must say I was pleasantly surprised and regretted not having seen more of the show.
As it turned out all the arrangements I had been commissioned to photograph had been designated as raffle prizes. This provided considerable time pressure on the photo creation exercise as the winners rushed the stage to collect their winnings! it was quickly explained that I would take a few minutes to photograph the creations before they good be taken by their new owners.
Luckily I had arrived armed in typical strobist style with a good ole Metz CT45 wirelessly triggered into a large white brolly on a tall lighting stand with another loose flash optically slaved of that for a bit of extra rim or fill as required. This allowed for fairly fast operation so saving me from the wrath of the Killybegs brigade! (who in fairness had a long drive home).
Here’s a link to Williams website http://www.reverendmac.com/ in case I have piqued your curiosity.
