With the exception of two, all the portraits look very natural, not staged.
How did you get these people to pose in such a natural way?

For most of these the people didn't know I was photographing them, one of the advantages of the 50-200 is that you can be quite a distance away and still fill the frame with your subject, as you can imagine with an event like this there were lots of other photographers also shooting images so me armed with an E5 and 50-200 wandering around didn't look out of place, very different from general street shooting where you can feel quite conspicuous.
