I returned to VIP Eye Care boutique in the downtown St. Petersburg area to photograph another one of their customer appreciation events. VIP has been my most frequent photography client, in addition to my optomology needs (contact lenses). This time the event happened while it was still light out letting me use some of the available natural light for different looks to shots.
This is a photograph of a reflection above, with the light from my SB-600 sidelighting her as seen in the reflection. I always like to try out new tricks when possible in order to create new event photographs for clients.
Such a purposefully overexposed shot was never possible at the other events I photographed for VIP after the sun went down. I thought it was interesting she kept her old glasses on her head while she tried on a new pair.
I asked this sunglasses rep to hold out a pair of them as far extended as he could as I wanted to make a shot with just the sunglasses in focus and him and the background the bokeh.
Visit VIP Eye Care for a very friendly staff that will take great care of your vision and a business that regularly shows its appreciation for customers.
