    Not A Time For Flash ?

    I will be attending, and helping out, at our Dawn service tomorrow morning here on Macleay Island. Will be taking my camera with 24-70 and maybe monopod for some support ( slow shutter speeds ). I would never consider useing a bright flash unit, as I feel that this is not the time or place to create a distraction from a high powered flash going off. I am mainly talking about the part of the ceremony around the war memorial itself. The guard of honor and such. Would like to hear your thoughts on this topic.

    I agree, Perhaps if the light is low just shoot high ISO and use your monopod the grain would make some nice B&W shots anyway

    I suppose it depends on what the organisers/participants want from it ,in the way of photos. If you haven't already done so, maybe discuss it with them. I feel the same as you at such an occasion, but if flash was required and consented to,would consider using it.

    Constructive critique of my photos is welcome and appreciated.

    Thanks Ionica. Good points. I am just taking shots for myself, but hopefully if any are worthy I would like to get printed and give to the local RSL branch. I also feel that even if consent is given you should respect the other public persons there on such a sombre occasion.

    I've used a monopod before in similar low light shoots they do let you shoot that bit slower best of luck wit the shoot.
