I've started a photography internship with www.discoversd.com, an online guide to San Diego. I took on a relatively advanced assignment even though I am still at grunt work level of the internship, just because the opportunity came up. I was to document an event at the Wave House, a club in Mission Beach that features a wave pool, with waves large enough for surfers. I don't understand the mechanics/physics, but I am reminded of a three-dimensional aquatic treadmill of sorts.
I was presented with the challenge of low-light photography, and I am not experienced with my flash. Thus I hovered around well lit areas and snapped pics of people there until a sympathetic professional photographer came over and gave me some flash advice.
