    Hiya mansi...i don't think you need worry at all. Use the skills you've been developing over the past many months and go wit the flow.
    From your past results you don't have probs with exposure and composition and that's a huge part of the battle.
    Jus use yer relaxed nature to help ppl loosen up and it'll all come tgether.

    I have faith in your ability to pull it off.
    :thumbup:

    One thing I will suggest is if there are harsh shadows and yer worried this may affect the images then slap it on Program and use your flash to fill in those shadows. The 350D will do auto fill-flash outdoors and the results will be quite acceptable. This will also give your subjects a guaranteed catchlight which will make the pics pop. :D

    Hope this helps mansi...good luck :hugs:
