Casablanca Pan School-18Casablanca Pan School-18Now these are the STUDENTS of the Casablanca Pan School. Don't know if that's the official name but I gave the name for my presentation. I want to say up front that this was one of the group shots I did because I was working with tremendous limitations. I don't like working with flash and I don't used tripods atlthough. I wanted to do the group shots early when the evening natural light was around.But that did not happen because of the weather that evening. So several scenarios were attempted and i can now say that this was the best in more ways than ne. Because it was after that I found out the who I had to feature. I want you now to pay attention to the the row of people after the young girl in the front of the frame and the mature lady just after her. Your eyes should now be viewing a lady in glasses at camera right. Veer left of the lady in glasses and you would see a smiling beauty, thats Adenike,her talented daughter and to her left is her brother,Kadiri( the two of them you'll see more of and really my story is about them-that family). Please understand and if you were there that this was nothing planned. But as we Trini say ,if God be my witness it just worked out beautifully. So in the rest I'll show the two separetely at their craft and after the two with their mother and in the gallery you may see them all playing a piece with band members. God truly works in mysterious ways.

 

Now these are the STUDENTS of the Casablanca Pan School.

Don't know if that's the official name of the group but I gave the name to them  for my presentation.

I want to say ,up front, that I did several group shots  because I was working with tremendous limitations. I seldom work with flash and I don't used tripods although I have one- bought it on my tutor's instructions and used it during my class time  practicals.

I wanted to do the group shots early when the evening natural light was around.But that did not happen because of the weather that evening. So several scenarios were attempted and I can now say that this one was, in an uncanny way, the best.

 It was  only after  the group shots that I learnt  who I had to feature.

I want you now to pay attention to the the row of people after the young girl in the front of the frame and the mature lady just after her.

Your eyes should now be viewing a lady in glasses at camera right. Veer  camera left of that lady in glasses and you would see a smiling beauty, that's Adenike, the lady's talented daughter and move your eyes again leftward you should be seeing a boy that's  her brother,Kadiri( the two of them you'll see more of and  they , that family is my story).

Please understand ,and if you were there, you would have known ,this was not a planned shot. But as we Trini would  say ,if God be my witness , I was just playing around with scenarios trying to use the available light. I was using a crop sensor lens-a fast one(17-55mm-f/2.8). I used flash here but raw  because I forgot the modifier at home. When something is not customary  things like this may happen.

So I attempted to reduce that  light and work more with the florescent lighting from the ceiling.

In the end this group shot worked out beautifully for the introduction. 

After this post I'll do three others from the assignment. 

A beautiful shot done creatively of Adenike( only received her name subsequent to my first posting of the event),then, one with her brother and to end the story ,via my blog feature ,the musical family Tamia,mother, Adenike,daughter and Kadiri, son.

 God truly works in mysterious ways.
