Drink Responsibly!

Nah, I will not bug you with educational messages: you are adults and perfectly able to act and drink responsibly without me talking down to you like our various pressure groups, politicians, and authorities .

The same goes for eating: You’re in charge of you. Salads or meat and pasta: up to you.

When getting together with friends, do record the event; on your iPhone if you must – or better, hire me to shoot it for you.

You will of course record the decorations as well:

Now, the point of this post?

These pictures were all from an event I shot Friday night.  And contrary to my habit, I changed lenses several times before settling on what I really wanted. I started with my favourite 35mm f/1.4 lens. But it was not dark, and I wanted a little wider, for the tables and so on, so I switched to the 16-35 f/2.8. Then I wanted longer, to get those large circles from the light – so I switched to the 24-70 f/2.8 L, the perfect all-round lens. I used it at discrete settings of 24, 35, 50 and 70mm. That way I knew what to expect.

Enjoy the festive season, and shoot a lot – this is the perfect season to record permanent memories!

  1. You say you used the lens discreetly at lengths of 24, 35, 50, etc. mm. Just curious — Is it possible to physically lock that lens down, or did you have to set it and then be careful not to move it?
