Michael Jerome works the turntables at the Drama Room in Dallas on Friday, August 6, 2004. It is one of the newest and hottest clubs in the Knox-Henderson area.
I tried something slightly different with this image. I used a hand-held, front-synch flash (color corrected for tungsten light) and burned in the lights by covering the section of the lens the DJ occupied (like buring-in a print) while the shutter was open for 30 seconds. I think it'll have a better effect with some practice and better light sources. I'll work on the technique some more.
If anyone else gives this a go, make sure the subject is in front of a dark, solid background during the flash exposure to lift the subject off the background and not smear light across her/his face.
Enough for now,
