Yesterday I shot for Brightroom and PGI Photos covering a holiday party for Starcom. Although I shot the typical people posing and candid shots I also shot a bunch of shots to just show the atmosphere. Here are a few of my favorites.
It was shot in the club Excalibur here in Chicago which used to be really cheesy but they have really done a good job with it and looks a lot better.
BTW - all of these images are straight out of the camera full frame with no crops. There are no filters or Photoshop tricks. I just resized in Photoshop and added the text. The shutter speeds were from 1/4 second to over a second. The new Canon ETTL2 metering on the 20D is now great. You need to set the camera to "average" instead of evaluative to get it to work right though.
I just got a call to shoot another event tonight.
