As a sponsor of Sunette Nieuwoudt I was invited to the Gala evening of the Winelands Winter Queen 2012 Pageant.
I took my camera with for the sole purpose to take photo’s of Sunette and the winner of the pageant. I did not even take with extra batteries for my flash or camera. All of the photo’s taken of the contestants on the evening was taken from our table. I had to delete allot of photo’s due to closed eyes, people jumping up or the official photographer blocking my view from were I sat. So if some of the contestants are looking at these photo’s please don’t be cross with me if you were not captured. I don’t like to publish photo’s of people who’s eyes are closed and due the lighting that happened very often.
I love challenging myself and my ability to adapt to different circumstances. For the first part of the evening I still had my external flash to rely on then the batteries died….

wow, this looks like a very festive event, quite the contrast for where i live in rural ecuador! seeing the photos makes me curious about the event! z
It was beauty pageant the ladies who participated were all married and most of them are mommies. I had another post where I covered the rest of the pageant.
You have some good subjects, I`m afraid I only got called every time my kids had a matric party and the occasional wedding. 🙂
Leo I am fairly new in the photography business I got my camera in 2009 and officially I only started my photography business in January 2010. I did 2 weddings in 2009 but did not charge any money. Till another photographer told me I must stop wasting my talents… It’s hard competing with the well known photographers but I am getting there 🙂
