25th SIC Anniversary Family Fiesta 2013

As the days come near for the 25th St Ignatius Church (SIC) Anniversary Family Fiesta 2013, I have to make a decision on the gear which I have to take the photograph during this special event. The choice is either Nikon D7000 and lens Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 VC which I have used during ALL my previous official Church events or company events OR make a change with my new Olympus OM D E-M5 with it's kit lens 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3.

Some of my friends said the OM D E-M5 kit lens is good but not good enough for official assignment. They suggest that I better get 12mm f/2.0 and 45mm f/1.8 for performance in low light and better image quality. I want to have those two awesome lens if I can but my pocket is very shallow and very tight on the budget. Beside I have finished off my 2013 budget for camera and lens.

I am a jungle man and a martial artist. Normally the limitation gives me a push to bring out my best in doing of what I have to do. That's why I opted for the Olympus OM D E-M5. It's a challenge.  In the midst of all these, I have a thought like "If Robin Wong can do it 90%, I can do it 10% is already very good."

The event was great and the shooting was fantastic but when I open the images on my Notebook that Sunday night, I am doomed. ALL the photographs that I have taken during the event were horrible.
I cried out, "Oh My God! I need help."
First thought come to my mind, first thing in the morning I have to contact Robin Wong for console or any help he can give to at least how to make this images look better. I prefer shooting right than editing later. My Church Web Editor will screw me and his confident on this Olympus OMD E-M5 will surely drop as I am promoting this tool to him. I could not sleep that night, worrying of what I have done for being so confident in this new tool.

But when Monday came, I uploaded the same images to my PC and this is what I get which I will share with you. Appreciate your comment on these images for my growth. Beside you may go to my Flickr to view the the Out Of Camera version.
