NYE Party Photos

Just thought I'd throw that in in case we had an sensitive forum members.

This year we had NYE celebrations with friends at our house. We picked up a cheap keg so the night was bound to be a good one. It was a bit cold, but no rain so we were lucky!

Here are a few (ok, 20) from the evening. I was consuming the odd ale myself, so there are some blown highlights (some pretty bad) and dodgey white balance, but I'm posting these more as a social documentary and a technique thread.

I must say I simply adore wireless flash. Since discovering its massive benefits for portraiture last year I drag it out at social every event I photograph.

All photos were taken with the Pentax K10D, Sigma 18-125 @ 18mm, 1/8sec., f/5.6, ISO-400 with a Sigma EF-500 Super in optical wireless held to camera left in every shot.

Oh, there are a fair few shots of my mate Cal (grey check jacket), he gets quite animated after a few beers, lol.
