People laughing; 24 Mar 2012.

Guests at a party, laughing at a speech.  My gaze is taken into the photo, down the “narrowing corridor” formed by the four, nearer faces, and ending up on the woman and partly seen man sitting up against the wall. 

D700 with 24-120 Nikkor at 24mm; 400 ISO; diffused, bounced flash;  converted to mono with Silver Efex Pro 2.

UPDATE: I especially like the couple in the “second row” of these faces.  They are a couple and thus know each other well >>> and the person making the speech has just said something that has made the man explode with laughter >>> so that his partner is looking over and smiling with delight at him – a wonderfully human moment.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    A lovely warm scene, Adrian! Isn’t it wonderful to be able to make and deliver a speech which just hits the spot?!

      Yes it is – I’ve spoken to many mass gatherings, but I’m not even sure I’ve ever given a speech in the true sense – its certainly an art. Glad you like the pic. A
