Lights, camera, illuminations!

Got to join the last Drink and Click gathering of the year (where has the time gone??) a couple of days ago, and had a blast.  We were supposed to be shooting around a theme of "celebrations", but…. I had too much fun playing around with the illuminations and strobe (^^;

It was a very pleasant (if somewhat windy and chilly) evening – big thanks as always to +holger feroudj for organizing these get-togethers – looking forward to more next year!  🙂

This month's +Drink and Click™ / +Drink and Click™ Tokyo  challenge was to take SOOC (straight out of camera) shots.  Meaning no cropping, no editing in photoshop/lightroom/picasa/etc.  
Due to work, I showed up a bit late so I didn't take too many images.  
Then, upon getting home, I have to say that it a bit difficult to resist the urge to edit!  Generally I like to at least do a bit brightening/darkening/sharpening/noise reduction…

However, it is also rather liberating not to have to think about post-processing 🙂

These are all SOOC, just used ViewNX to convert the raw files to jpg, and resize – nothing else.  I think it was a good challenge, and I plan to revisit this challenge again personally soon because once you take out the possibility of post-processing (in any form), you do start paying alot more attention to the smaller details.

Thanks as usual to +Juan Gonzalez , and our sponsors +Think Tank Photo and +SmugMug !
