James and Jamie Engagement Dinner

A couple of weeks ago, my friend James had asked me if I can come up and take some pictures at his engagement dinner. It was a formal dinner to introduce the two families to each other. It was a great timing as I just purchased my new Canon 5D Mark II and I had an opportunity to test out the camera. The pictures I took didn’t come out as well as I had expected. I expected real crisp clean pictures but instead I got just okay pictures. I believe what I did wrong was adjust the iso too high, therefore getting grainy pictures. I overestimated the camera settings and had to learn the hard way. I only used two lenses here, a Canon 50 1.4 and the Canon 24-70 2.8L.

I also made a slide show of the evening. I’m still new to making slideshows but I will be trying to make a slideshow for every event I cover. Please enjoy.
