My sister asked me to take her and her friends to AsiaSF, a lark of a drag revue here in San Francisco. I decided to use it as an excuse to practice my lighting work, since I have practically zero lighting experience.

Lighting was tricky because the place is big and darkly-painted, so bouncing wasn’t much of an option. Before I figured out to bounce off a white napkin on the bar, I just had my SB-600 on a stand on the bar. Since the light wasn’t bounced and was coming from the side, firing the strobe produced some pretty cool (completely unintended) effects. I kinda liked this one, which added to the mystery of one of the “gender illusionists” (they prefer that over ‘drag queen’ or ‘trannie’).
