Some pictures from my first paid photo assignment

So, a day after a purchased the K5 I took it to my first paid assignment. It was a Halloween Masquerade party at a night club. I was very pleased with the speed of the K5's autofocus in what was a very dark environment. All photos taken with a PENTAX-DA* 16-50mm F2.8 and Metz 58 flash.

I was very happy with the results and most importantly the client was as well and I have received more work from them.

Most shots were bounced. The ones that weren't were with a diffuser
