May Crowning

Recently, while photographing the May Crowning at Saint Philip Catholic Church, I was blessed (pun intended) when someone decided to take a flash picture at the exact instant I made my image. The result was quite pleasing and looks like I lit the scene with an off camera flash. In reality I did, it just wasn't planned!

Technically I was very, very lucky. The person who "assisted" me with their lighting was using a very weak on camera flash at a considerable distance, thus not overpowering my available light high ISO exposure. If they had been closer or using a more robust flash my exposure would have been unusable without considerable highlight compression. If it could have been saved at all.

Sometime you just have to accept a little divine intervention.
