Holiday Party

I don't know if you remember, but a few months ago I was freaking out about having to buy gifts for everyone who helped us pay for the wedding. Well, I took your advice and decided to have a small dinner to show our appreciation instead and I must say, it was a total success! Here are just a few shots from our weekend holiday party...

I'm not going to include the picture of my apartment catching fire because of this bird.
True story!

P.S. Does anyone have any tips on how to shoot in really low-light situations sans flash? I have a 50mm 1.4 lens, but even with my aperture wide open and my ISO jacked all the way up, the pictures weren't that great. Okay, maybe I'm being a little too hard on myself, but seriously...any tips would be greatly appreciated. I want to capture these moments right.

How fun! Love all the fun food.

For low-light pictures, I finally sprung for a Nikon SB-600 flash. It lets you "bounce" the light off the ceiling and the lights look great! You can also tape a piece of index card to the bottom of your on-camera flash to "bounce" the light that way!

This party looks so gorgeous! I especially love the cheese tree, mostly because I love cheese. ;]
