Single Flash Assignment: "Swing" / by Morgan Lieberman

For my single flash assignment, I attended the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival as well as Mizzou Swing Club Dance Lessons. My outdoor photo was with a direct flash and my indoor photo was a bounce flash off of a green wall in Memorial Union. I was very worried that it was going to be unsuccessful because I was missing the radio receiver that I needed for the Pocket Wizard to properly communicate with the flash, so I turned my camera on command mode. The command mode allowed me to use my on camera flash to trigger the off camera flash and not overpower its  light as well. I had a lot of fun stopping action and giving two very different settings a well lit outcome. I hope to practice this skill more with sports photography.

 Marat Musin, a Russian PhD Physics candidate, has been at Mizzou for 5 years now, and is shown teaching the "shim sham" to students at Memorial Union on Tuesday, October 4, 2016. He started teaching swing lessons a few months ago and likes the shim sham dance because "it has good stops and breaks to do fun things."
