    First time "gig" for me taking some shots for this party as an offer put out there to some friends.

    I used my e-pl1 and voigtlander nokton 25mm for the night and for the most part I am quite happy. The voigtlander performs well and is reasonably easy to focus - even in this venue which is extremely low light. (I was pushing up to ISO 3200 for all the non-flash shots!)

    Everything taken at 0.95 on the Nokton.

    Here we go!~

    Thanks guys! it was a fun party with a lot of good people. Felt like I learned a lot about metering settings in such dark as the night progressed...

    Hi Kosta,

    Nice set. Thanks for taking the time to share.

    More importantly, were they happy? That's the actual measure of a gig.

    Brings me back to my college days. I used to be a "raver". Not too many of those around here anymore unless its in the larger cities. I must say, you really caught the feel and the vibe of the event.

    Very nice set. I think the look and processing really suit the shots.

    Nice set! I'm not much of a party scene shooter, but these are really good.
