    I teach a class once a week, so I was forced to attend my gym's annual all-hands meeting last night. It's a pita, but has some nice side benefits... like lots of healthy young subjects for my candid camera. I always volunteer to take some snaps, and my little 45/1.8 and obsolete Oly pl2 had no problem delivering the goods.

    First they fed us a healthy meal of salads, followed by a desert of management speeches.

    CAM36640-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/125s    ISO 200


    I had some great table-mates.

    CAM36648-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/60s    ISO 200


    CAM36658-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/80s    ISO 640


    Then we had some training, closely monitored by the big boss.

    CAM36660-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/80s    ISO 500


    Some of the material was slightly controversial.

    CAM36656-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/80s    ISO 400


    Next a QA session.

    CAM36665-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/60s    ISO 250


    My tablemate was an eager participant.

    CAM36657-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/100s    ISO 200


    Performers were recognized and applauded.

    CAM36671-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/60s    ISO 200


    At night's end, the big boss was pleased that he received value for putting on the event.

    CAM36661-mr-XL.
    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/60s    ISO 320


    Note, in past years, I used a big rig (dslr) to cover this event. But my u4/3 stuff proved more than adequate, and much less intrusive.

    I'd say more than adequate is an understatement! Very nice shots. :thumbup:
