LMU Kappa Alpha Theta Spring Formal 2014 at Bardot Nightclub in Hollywood Presented by Recess University

by Brandon Peters in Events,Night Life,Nightclub

The Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity and Sorority chapter of Loyola Marymount University had its 2014 Spring Formal this Friday at Bardot Nightclub in Hollywood and I was hired to do the event photography.  The event was facilitated and put on by Recess University which is known as being the premiere entertainment and event provider for students in the greater Los Angeles area.

I’ve shot many college party events for Recess University and always have a blast taking pictures at them.  This last event was no different!  This actually marks the second time I’ve shot at Bardot Nightclub in Hollywood.  I was thrilled to shoot here again because the venue always caters to capturing great photos.  It’s a big space, has a great vibe, and sounds awesome inside.

The LMU college students arrived full of energy and danced the whole night away!  Everyone came dressed upscale and classy.  The girls wore fashionable dresses and the guys showed up wearing stylish suits, ties, bow ties, and even suspenders.  It was a very photogenic and attractive crowd.  The DJ was great, everyone enjoyed themselves and I was very happy with how the pictures turned out.

I shot with my Canon 1-DX camera and Quantum QFlash TRIO attached to a Turbo 3 rechargeable battery pack.  This is my go to setup for events these days.  The results I get with this combination are remarkable, especially in dim lit situations.  I shot with my 24mm lens in manual mode with my shutter speed set to 1/160th of a sec.  My aperture ranged anywhere between an f-stop of 2.2 – 3.2 depending on the area of the club I was in.  My ISO was usually set at either 2500 or 3200.  I usually aim my flash behind me so it reflects against the room and gives me nice even lighting on my subjects.  For the shots where I turned my speed light off I shot at a shutter speed of 1/80th of a sec with my aperture set to its widest position of 1.4 and an ISO as high as 32000.

The event ran from 11pm to 12:30am and I took about 250 pictures.  Below are my favorite selects of the night.  Enjoy 🙂
