    We hosted a movie screening for World AIDS Day this past Saturday, and I spent a good amount of time documenting the event with my new E-P2.

    A few notes from the shoot:
    -It is well documented, but the VF-2 is an absolute Godsend in the bright African sun. That said, it is taking a little getting used to when it comes to composing with it.
    -I got a trial of Nik Silver Efex Pro. I didn't get it at first, but the more I use it, the more I dread the end of my 15 days. I definitely cannot afford it, but I sure wish I could :frown:

    Feedback is welcome!

    This one is my favorite from the set. This was taken while the kids were discussing the movies, which featured themes related to HIV and the problems and choices these kids face. I think it captured the feeling of the discussion really well.

    Great series. One of the best things about this forum is the variety of people and pictures giving such a wonderful insight into different countries and cultures :2thumbs:

    Like #5 - maybe a closer crop on the head to remove the guy in the foreground ? The tones and shades with stark white of the hood-trim are fantastic.
