The event included an inking session from 6pm to 9pm and the program, raffle and music followed until the wee hours of the morning.
I was invited to take photos as part of the staff. It wasn't a paid gig or anything (except our entrance, food and booze are free.) The experience was a low light shooting challenge galore. I had no external flash, I was using kit lens and the place was rather crowded. Furthermore, my camera didn't exactly have an amazing sensor for high ISO shooting. But I'm not complaining, it was all good! I learned a few stuff.
I had some good shots and some bad shots. I tried to include everything and everyone and obviously, I failed at that part.
