London Photo Walk

Last Friday (11th December) along with Ben Potter and Helen Atkinson I led a group of 30 photographers on a photo walk taking in the Norman Parkinson exhibition at Somerset House and then on to the Landscape Photographer of the Year show at the National Theatre. We finished the day with a mini master class on low light and night photography on Thames opposite the Palace of Westminster/Houses of Parliament.

A good day was had by all and the participants turned in some stunning images which can be seen by visiting the dedicated Flickr pool which is growing daily.

One of the key aims of the day was to get the walkers enthused and seeing "outside of the box"! The expression I like to use is "think with your eyes". From the images in the Flickr pool we certainly achieved this. The exhibitions also gave the walkers an opportunity to view some stunning images and compare notes with the other photographers in the warm!

We finished the day cold and happy with a Chimping Competition - a very simple and fun concept (thanks Helen for the idea). Basically, each photographer chose their favourite image of the day and displayed it in cameras rear screen. We then took a quite look at 30 or so images and decided which we thought we the best. Here are three of the six winners, who each won a Think Tank Photo Pixel Pocket Rocket memory card wallet.
