I was hired by Palio in Saratoga Springs, NY to photograph some ads for a casino’s Night Club. It was a hectic yet very exciting day. The subjects were all real people, cast from the club itself, the agency, friends and some family. At one point the ACD, Nicholas Parslow figured there were 70 people on our set. I shot a combination of strobe and hot lights. I wanted our foreground people to be frozen and sharp while the background could blur out. Also by shooting at a slow shutter speed I was able to pull in the club’s own lighting to capture some of it’s architectural details. For the last shot of the night, the club was opened up for about 500 people to be in the background of our photograph. They danced away to a band called “The Refrigerators.”
