I went to a acoustic guitar evening last night and took the E-5 with me. I took a few shoots of people while we where sitting outside have snacks and drinks.

There has long been this thing about using a small/sneaky camera to put peoples fears of camera to rest. I said to most of the people there , that I do photography as a hobby and do they mind me pointing this big system in their faces . The response was interesting , all did not mind and some one said " I if you where using a small camera I would be worried about your intention. " .

Any way great music , great food , great red wine, a great rugby match to watch on TV afterwards. What was not so great was the headache this morning.

I actually did some video with the E-5 as well when the battery ran out on the SX220. I should have used it in the first place as to E-5 video was better due to the sharper glass ( 12-60. ) . The narrow DOF and the sped where very interesting. With this narrow DOF you have to start thing about comp.

Interest in the conversation.
