Morton Visuals had the opportunity to provide formal event portraits of the employees of the San Marcos Costco for their post-holidays Christmas party. This event was held in the Crystal Ballroom at the beautiful Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, CA. This event was a well earned chance for employees to celebrate a hectic holiday season – and William Morton was able to capture everyone dressed to impress on this occasion. I have to say, this is a great group of people – and we had a great time with the Costco team!

Event portraits ("Prom portraits") at a holiday party

The Crystal Ballroom’s most prominent feature was the beautiful staircase at one end. The first steps provided the best opportunity to position couples and groups for formal (“prom style”) portraits. Filled to capacity, there wasn’t much room to set up camera and lighting as the tables were tightly arranged and filled all but the dance floor. A main light was positioned against the wall between the first two tables at camera left. A (tightly gridded) fill light was positioned across the room against the wall at camera right. We were able to place a gridded hair light at the top of the stairs, which was out of sight of the camera. Thankfully we had PocketWizard radios to fire three of our Dynalite power packs. Overall I think the “remote lighting” setup worked, and we were able to produce some really nice event portraits at this occasion. What do you think?
