Well what an amazing weekend, first up the photography show which didn't disappoint, so much to see, so many new products, wonderful live shows with some great photographers including Damien McGillicuddy and Karl Taylor - not only were their demonstrations inspiring but also great fun, but the highlight for me was gaining a distinction with the Royal Photographic Society! It has been months of hard work and preparation and on the day I was not at all sure I would be successful - the judges had already discounted some of the panels and sitting in the room waiting for your work to be judged was simply nerve wracking, but to hear your name called out to be told that you had supplied a successful body of work was amazing! Think I am still on cloud nine, so now that I have achieved my LRPS time to think about going for the next one, well that is if the nerves can stand it!!
Amazingly enough although tempted by all the new products on display and despite thinking about upgrading one of my cameras, and spending ages on the canon stand playing with the cameras, I managed to keep my spending in check and came home with just a new stand and boom arm for the studio!!!
Just mad about photography!!
