First Star Shine The Light Reception...

Photos from First Star's Second Annual
"Shine the Light on Children's Rights"
Cocktail Reception and Benefit.. complete with a silent auction.
Lots of DC beautiful people showed up and it was a very fun event.
I like what this group does.. and this was their most fun event yet that I have captured.

A challenging space.. basement lounge with reds, yellows and darks. I was going to go with an off-camera 580EXII justin-clamped up high camera left but that got complicated and I was never happy about the angle. Plus, my improvised stand ended up getting moved anyway so I used a single 580EXII bounced up with a stofen. What turned out to be a large space quickly filled up with lots of people - FAST... so it worked.

Google them.. a worthwhile non-profit here in DC.
