    Friends of mine just got engaged. I'm not much of a "people shooter" and never have been, but I've got some nice gear and wanted to give them a few nice shots.

    I had a VERY limited kit. The X100 and an EP-1 with a Pen-F 38mm f/1.8 attached. That was it.

    The light .... was....terrible. Constantly going from cloudy and grey/green to incredibly bright overhead light. The roses (this was taken at the "Rose Test Garden" in Portland, Oregon) were mostly browning. Ick. Just kind of a nightmare. Used an old no-name manual flash for fill on some of them, but the X100 flash was generally better.

    They're all pretty... bad, but I thought I'd share here because why not? :)

    x100 shots:
