Conference Photography

I was recently invited to photograph a conference for a friend which was a first for me

I’m trying to say ‘Yes’ to more invites rather than my default setting of saying ‘No’ to things that I don’t normally do and I’m really glad that I did.  Got to meet and listen to some interesting people including John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman and ‘The Machine Gun Preacher’ and catch up with some old friends

It was a real learning curve using the Canon 100D and Canon 50mm lens indoors rather than out on the street. The circumstances made me think on my feet, try out new settings and become comfortable photographing people in a totally different setting

The occasion also pushed me to embrace my ‘One Camera One Lens’ approach rather than buying or hiring a different lens for the day which I’d thought about doing during  the run up to the day

Will definitely look forward to doing more of this type of photography in the future and here’s a few sample images from the day
