Photographing SASS Desi Night

A few weeks ago, I was asked by a friend of my friend if I could photograph an event their society was organising called "SASS Desi Nite". I did not have anything else going on that night and have also unfortunately not touched my camera for a while, so I agreed. Not because they promised free food, of course. 

I haven't exactly been asked by someone apart from my friends to photograph an event before, so I was a teensy bit nervous but I told myself that it was just taking photos and I enjoy doing that. As the event started, I wandered around in search of potential shots to capture and did so throughout the whole time I was there. There were performances first, which I really enjoyed, then there were games before it ended and food was catered. As it ran through the evening into early night, it meant that it had to go through golden hour. I almost didn't mind that the light kept changing throughout the first hour because when the golden light streamed in to light the performances, I was almost giddy with delight and kept trying to see if I could get the performers from different angles just to be able to capture that glow that bathed them in.

Here are the photos. I've kept the editing to a minimal as it is for someone else (i.e. not a personal shoot) and I figured that they would prefer it that way. 

Then they had some games.

Lastly, I have been rather busy lately as I am looking for jobs or internships to apply to for the summer and alongside assignments and exams, I have been taking ages to edit photos and update my blog, but I promise that I have not abandoned it. For those viewers who follow my posts faithfully, I cannot be more flattered and thankful for your support. I will always blog whenever I can but I also want to uphold a certain quality so that's what it is :)
