The light fantastic thing
So… last weekend i was at the light fantastic expo, which was more of a two day lecture on advertisements for products and other courses run by the same guys who ran the expo. the first day was mainly run by Dale Neill, who ran us through low light shooting and HDR, unfortunately nothing i didnt know. What was interesting was the section on how to make a photo book easily… which i am now planning on doing ASAP! Each day there was 4 guest speakers, talking about travel photography, then a 1 hour talk by Richard I’anson. Day 2 had this seemingly rich Bird photographer, Denis Glennon, who used all the most expensive gear, and after was even looking at buying a $8000 800mm display lens!!! Nick mendolis gave a talk on fine art editing, which i hoped would be a substitute for a CF course, but sadly only advertised two expensive programs.
After another hour chat with I’anson i got caught up at the gear stands. They had a $150 waterproof housing which i nearly bought, but before i could they ran out of stock.
I cant say it was that light FANTASTIC, but it was enLIGHTeningly informational. (Bad Pun…?)
Need any more info? i left out some bits but thats pretty much all that was there. Where were you guys??? i was hoping to meet someone! And I kept seeing flyers for fletchers exhibition everywhere!
