Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

I was there at times as well, but as I don't know what most of you look like, I was too shy to approach anyone. We need to sort out a badge system!

A fairly cheap day for me, no electronics, just a new bag (of course), and a strap for my binoculars. Was tempted for all of 5 seconds to get a 'scope attachment for my phone, but as I'm still some way off buying a good birding telescope then I did think it a bit pointless. Impressed by some of the images I've seen taken that way though.

Good prices on several lenses, but I'm not really ready to pay that much right now. My trusty 12-60 and 50-200 (both bought second hand from members of this group) are still going very well and giving great images.

I wear a badge every year the site logo with my forum name and Christian name.
I have a double pouch for admission and site badge.
Maybe we should have mobile numbers or drift back to the site on the hour?
I did suggest red carnations one year.....................

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

A discreet form of visual ID would be a great idea.

Again I went to some excellent talks today. A pair at the Nikon stand first thing, both on light: high-end weddings, and wildlife. Tesni Ward telling some lovely stories, then another classic hard-hitting photojournalism presentation from Zed Nelson on gun culture in the US, ‘aesthetic’ surgery across the world, and the hipsterisation of Hackney.

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

I mean something more formal, maybe with a guest who would be interesting to meet, perhaps in addition to the show rather than at the show?

Open to ideas - we have, as I said, a whole year to plan!

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

Likely to be the second or third weekend in March, Saturday-Tuesday inclusive.

A friend of mine went on the Sunday this time, while his 20-year-old son went to Comicon, which worked out well since they both live near Cambridge. I think Comicon is only on for the Sat & Sun.
