The Photography Exhibition 2015
After a couple of crazy weeks (months? year?), we managed to get a few days off work to rest, finish moving home and generally get a break. So we decided to visit the Photography Exhibition 2015, at the NEC in Birmingham. It was a very interesting and inspiring day, from all the camera manufacturers trying to tempt you with the latest and greatest models, plus some really tempting deals) to small companies selling services like printing and framing. Oh, and drones. Many drones.
I shot my Canon 11ooD all day (ISOs between 400 and 800) with the 50mm f/1.8 lens all day. I also avoided to buy any cameras! Well, almost. Jenny will tell you more about that in due time.
Nikon often gets a bad rap where I am concerned, so here’s a shout out for the people in yellow!
We were very lucky to catch up a talk with the great Don McCullin. He talked through his war photography, which was both brilliant, touching and horrifying. A very engaging speaker.Don went on to answer audience questions for well over 30 minutes, often on what were very personal issues, with both clarity and candour. It felt like a special moment; the audience was clearly enraptured.
