School ball photography is always a treat for the team at Freestyle Event Photography. School balls are fun events, and we try to capture that fun in both posed and candid photos. This time we set up a black and gold tinsel curtain backdrop, which students were very keen to pose in front of. Our goal is to create memorable images for the students to look back on.
This year, ACG Sunderland held their school ball at the Markovina Vineyard Estate in Kumeu, north-west of Auckland City. The evening included a buffet dinner, dancing, awards, and lots of fun group shots in front of our backdrop.
We’ve written about this in previous blog posts but it’s worth repeating: Photography is as much about communicating and interacting with people as it is about the technical camera skills. Putting people at ease, laughing together, creating an atmosphere appropriate to the occasion. At Freestyle we place a high importance on people-skills as a necessary component of a professional photographers’ role.
