On August 19 2010 our Editor Chris Gampat hosted the first monthly networking event which he named Snapshots. The staff of The Phoblographer and loads of other people got together to share a few drinks and some great conversation. I had the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G ED AF-S RF SWM lenson hand to take some pictures of the event.

Thoughts On Using the lens At SnapShots
We met at Stone Creek (140 East 27th between 3rd and Lexington) and at first the lighting was great. I was taking a lot of candid pictures and passing the camera around to let people try out the lens. The lens worked out very well here. Its wide angle and the f-stop range and the quick autofocus allowed for some great captures.
For the most part, I did not need a flash, the lens handled the low light atmosphere very well. Shots were quickly and easily obtainable from any angle no matter how close the subject was. This lens enabled me to control the experience and not worry about getting the shot.
As the light departed, I was still able to get shots using available light but not as sharp or clear as I would of wanted. Considering how dark it was though, the fact that I got shots at all was pretty cool.
Snapshots is monthly networking get-together looking to gather people across the photo industry: PR reps, photographers, journalists, art buyers, studio techs, etc. It will be every third Thursday of the month. Come join us, grab a drink, some good food, and chat about the industry.
Snapshots is there to get people to connect with one another: PR reps with journalists or with photographers, Art Buyers with Photographers, etc. Think social networking without the computer.
