Band Photography – Ricoh GRii with flash.

 

Yes, new Ricoh GRiii camera is already announced and I saw a few reviews about the new features of the new version like a touch screen and 24MP huge APS-C sensor. And one “feature” made me a little bit sad – the lack of flash in the new camera. Now I’m not sure if I will want to have this new one ever – even presence of the new in-body image stabilization can’t help – I do not feel it unnecessary for me exactly like to have this touch screen.

Today I continue the theme of my previous post about using Ricoh GRii pocket camera with a built-in flash during live performance events. Band photography is my special love. I use the same techniques and skills I got when I learned street photography and was in love with the genre – a fast reaction on what is happening around, knowing your gear habits and to being everywhere at once. In the first days of using Ricoh at night, I photographed in the same way as with my DSLR – high ISO, shutter priority fixed on 1/60-1/125, but I always wanted to see what I can do with the built-in flash and much more slower shutter. I made a preset with an ISO 100, shutter speed 1/2-1/6 (depend on the amount of ambient light), first curtain flash and manually prefocused lens – 1-3m, depending on the situation.

As you can see, the results I got are slightly different from the results created early by DSLR, but I also used a different technique. I love these strange lighting effects I got in my images – after all, I don’t pretend to be another Bruce Gilden, but I’m going to improve the flash photography technique with the goal to make something interesting and new, at last, new for me.
