For my single flash photos I had planned on doing something totally different. Originally I had wanted to go to a karaoke night, but it turned out that the restaurant that held the event had actually closed and the information online was incorrect. I found an event that was being put on by the University. It was a clothing swap being held in Memorial union and I figured that it could be an interesting event.

I had trouble with the direct flash and getting the light to be exactly where I wanted it to be. It was also either too hot or not bright enough. I think I need to work on figuring out where the light is going to hit and how to get it to do that directionally. For the bounce flash lighting I found it difficult because of the really high ceilings. They were not only really high, but they had like a square paneling on them. I tried to bounce the light off the flattest part of the ceiling but had trouble getting it to bounce back on the subject just right.
