Well it took us a while but we finally got all the 'official' photos from the Londonist birthday party on to Flickr so if you want to check them out here's the link. Feel free to add your comments.

In the meantime here's a selection of some of our favourites.

lovely pics. wot camera did you use?

Paul Mison

If you go through to Flickr (and it's not "experiencing indegestion") it says a Canon EOS 5D.

The lucky beggars.

Yes, a shiny new EOS 5D took those shots, newly delivered on the morning of the party. So much for giving myself enough time to get used to the camera before using it in earnest.

i get that the pics were taken in a dark room. what was your trick with lighting. it's all perfect. how did you get it so flattering with none of that horrid flat flash flesh. please do tell.

Ken

Thanks, Inky Circus. I wouldn't say everything was perfect but I try my best. :)

No real tricks - just an external flash (the 5D doesn't have on board flash anyway) bounced off at various angles. A high quality lens with max aperture of f/2.8 helped, although ideally I'd have had an even faster lens than that.

The other secret - throwing away a huge amount of photos that were beyond salvage. The beauty of digital.
