I snapped some shots last night at a small wedding reception. The lighting was extremely low key. After experimenting with some settings on my EPL1, I settled on pushing the max ISO all the way to 3200, setting the camera to program mode, and shooting about 50% without a flash. With all the recent chatter around m43 weddings, embracing noise, and high ISO performance, I figured the shots presented here might be of interest to the community; they are all 1600+ ISO, shot handheld my EPL1 coupled with either the Panny 20mm 1.8 or a Canon 50mm 1.4, and no flash. All were shot wide open. For the most part they were processed with Topaz Denoise (although I left the noise in some of them - noise is grain when b&w, amiright?), with some B&W conversion done in LR3 and some in Silver Efex. Lessons learned: Take off the damn UV filter when shooting indoors! This probably contributed to the flaring in some of the shots. Lens hood! Might have helped the flaring. Topaz Denoise is amazing. 50mm is a nice focal length for candids. Manual focus with the 20mm is a pain in the ass. As a correlate to the previous point, an auto focus assist light would help immensely. This will be one of my criteria when looking for a flash. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. I wish I didn't blow the focus here, but I like it nonetheless: 7. 8. As I wrote, I think it's a combination of shooting wide open, leaving the UV filter on, and lack of a lens hood that created this flaring. The groom's smile saves it though. 9. 10. They caught me taking pictures of them, and turned goofy. 11. The bride's brother stands proud. 12. Will they be next? 13. 14. 15. The cake was bigger ... before we ate it. 16. Shooting the shooter! The pro photog there had a big Canon and a cool lighting setup - 2 diffused lights in the corners triggered by his on camera flash. I know nothing about flash photography, but I look forward to seeing his results! 17.
