Attended the 10'th wedding anniversary of our youngest daughter and her husband - last night. A section of the restaurant was cordoned off for the enjoyment of the 60 guests.

I was instructed not to be bothering those invited by shooting personalized videos or turning the evening into an obvious shoot - - - so I restrained myself by sitting quietly on my own and looking for different ways to shoot inconspicuously.

And so I found many people sitting beside me with the arms on the table or their laps - creating gaps that I could shoot through. As is the trend now, everyone was shooting a ton of "Selfies" with their iPhones and iPads. And so while the subjects were occupied looking at their arms outstretched camera (or if someone was shooting it for them) - - - I was sneaking my artistic, emotion packed shots without drawing attention to myself.

This small selection from the night were captured with my no-too-obvious Olympus Pen E-PL5 with 14-42 kit lens. The setting was not overly bright and so required all photos to be shot at 6400 ISO at 1/30'th to 1/50'th second wide open.

I like the series of shots in the above two posts by Robert Watcher, a technique I must try myself when the occasion demands. B/W definitely works for me.
