As I told myself before and if my schedule permits, I'll take photos of events happening at Parkes Leagues Club as it would be a good training ground for my photography skills.
As to not distract anyone during the program, I positioned myself this time at the very back of the auditorium and hoped that my zoom lens won't let me down. It did, so i'm actually thinking of replacing my almost 10-year old camera and lens with a new one.
I was there to take photos of the event as a whole, and not to take photos of individuals or families. Not that I don't want to take their photos, its just that I am (still) shy to walk around auditorium and ask people, "could i take your photos?"... well at least, last weekend I was shy.
So during breaks, I just stepped outside the auditorium.
While waiting for the program to resume, some people went out to have their selfies and photos at the 'backdrop'. And i saw this as an opportunity to take their photos.
I offered to take their photos using their mobile devices, and then i asked to take photos from my camera. They loved it. Someone was actually, "photographer can you take our photos".
As it was getting late for me, I decided to wrap things up before the band started playing :(
Hope everyone had a good time.
