Reundancy

Just when you think everything is good, you have a catastrophic failure – of camera equipment. This shot was fine. Except for one other shot the rest were way over-exposed. I use flash. It ensures an even exposure and any movement by the crowd is lessened in the final shot. The flash or camera malfunctioned and the other shots got way over-exposed. I said that already?! This was completely unexpected since I have been shooting successfully for a long time. What went wrong? The obvious place to look – the flash. I checked the settings. I consulted the manual. The camera settings had not changed. Resetting the flash seemed to take care of the exposure problem. Next time I do a group I will check my exposure before letting the group disperse. I always shoot more than one shot of groups. Caution paid off this time. Pfewf!!
