One of my photos

Crawley Campaign Against Racism

Last night I went to the CCAR annual international social evening. Jayne was working so I had to go on my own; not a problem as I probably knew 100 of the people there. It was a bit of a special event, celebrating the 35th anniversary of the organisation, and my first real chance to have a play with my new prime lens. It was also a chance to see the new Bewbush Centre, which is a brilliant space for holding events.

As a result of having a new toy to play with I probably took a lot more portrait-type photos that I should have done. Here are a few of the pics.

Jim - another work colleague, and one of my favourite photos

    Enjoyed pictures. What camera and lens did you use?

    Canon 1000D (now superseded by the 1100D) and most of the time I was using the 50mm f1.8 lens – the wide aperture means you can get away with not using a flash and you get a lot of artistic out-of-focus backgrounds on portraits.
