My wife recently held a vintage style garden party and I thought I would take the opportunity to grab some portrait shots, they were taken with the GF1+20mm - a great combination.

Here are the results:

It'd be cool to see them edited in a vintage style as well (sepia?).
Either way, good job!

great colours, perfect exposure, marvelous subjects and spot on focus

Almost too good - I am glad that you are not photographing my "bags", wrinkles and other peculiarities

must be time for a "cuppa" - for me Ian, not you - get back to work!

very nice, especially the third one and the last one! it would be interesting to add more post-processing - maybe warmer colours and less clarity for smoother skin tones.

Ian,
As per course, all are nice.
#3 is a true gem. It works well.
The look, like from early Vogue Magazine.
Reminds me of Penn.....
Thanks...shooter

Thank you all for the nice comments, the combination of GF1+20mm is superb for these type of shots and because it is a small combination I found the subjects were less intimidated than using a large "In your face" DSLR combo.

I deliberately did not want to soften or over edit as I wanted to show what the 20mm is capable of - as if I need to for all the 20mm owners.

It was a fun day and I also feature in there #4 - dressed as the gardener!

Following some comments above, I have softened and toned 3 pictures from the day:
#1 is my wife taken by me
#2 is my daughter taken by me
#3 is me taken by my wife







I have tried a slightly warmer tone for #2 - hope you like them and they are more in keeping with the clothes.

Hi all, my wife has a vintage shop specialising in jewellery, clothes, shoes, bags and accessories from the 1920's-1960's, she also attends a lot of vintage events.
This was a garden party that we hosted for some of her friends and associates and the theme was 1920's - 1940's dress - a great day with fun people and fairly good if not a little overcast day.
Hey Streetshooter - on that day apart from being duty photographer, I was also duty gofor!!
