Free London Photo Walk
Ben & I have teamed up with Helen Atkinson , the director of Snapperstuff (who import Think Tank Photo bags amongst other fine photo gear into the UK) to bring you a free photo walk in London on Friday 11th December 2009.
Park Cameras have kindly donated a £10.00 gift voucher for each participant.

This went to the press yesterday and we're already getting a lot of interest. So if you want to come along, be sure and contact me soon to reserve your place.
Here is one of the frames I created last week when planning the walk. If you do come along and want to participate in the mini lowlight and night workshop, you'll need a sturdy tripod.
Canon EOS 5D MkII, 24 – 105 mm f4 IS L Series. Focal length 24mm colour temp. 4850K (daylight), RAW, -1 stop exposure compensation, tripod, remote release, ISO 200, f8, 1/6th sec Image cropped after adjustments to RAW in ACR
If you're without a tripod you can use a firm surface for support and still achieve a good shot. I always have some off-cuts of fleece (the stuff they make thermal clothing with, not the stuff from sheep!) in my bag. This serves a multitude of uses including stopping your gear scuffing and as a base when you're making long exposures. For those interested, I'll be demonstrating a few techniques to steady your camera when the tripod has been left in the car or "it's a pain in the ... carrying the damn thing, so I won't bother taking it!". Which in my experience, it's normally the latter.
Must go now and return to editing this morning's images.
