Miss Great Britain Scotland - Glasgow heat


Byblos in Glasgow was the venue - dark, low ceilings and an unhelpfully bright high intensity spotlight partially illuminating the contestants at the end of the catwalk.

The spotlight would have been bright enough to allow me to shoot without flash, but the beam typically ended up bisecting a face with a very hard boundary (and at had least four stops difference between the illuminated area and shadows). A boost in flash power helped with a lot of the shots, but large number were still immediate discards.
