Take time out from photography? It was my son's 21st birthday party last Saturday night, and I used it as an opportunity to work on my 'small camera - one light' technique for events. I took many photos, which wasn't hard as I couldn't walk more than a couple of metres without someone shouting "Gary! Gary!" and then posing obligingly. The hardest shots to get were the candids (which honestly - I much prefer). Even though it was small, it was as though they could smell the camera. Must be something about alcohol sensitising people's sense of smell or something.
Here's my favourites.
