Yes you did just read that right. I did say the Naked Photographer.
So I've just given my first public photography talk at The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham to about 300 people called The Naked Photographer.
The whole idea behind the talk was that I was gonna do a totally improvised shoot. I'd been struck by how prepared and how much equipment all the other speakers had. So as I like to do things differently, I thought it may be fun to go on stage and do a shoot...........without having anyone to shoot or any camera to shoot with.
I was totally wrong, it wasn't fun in any way. I was so nervous, but thankfully it worked and I've had some amazing feedback from people who attended. So a massive thanks to everyone who helped me out / supported me / didn't laugh me off stage.
The whole idea of the shoot was to show people what was possible with minimal equipment and a bit of imagination. So check out the photos here:
Well there you go. I looked at the times of the shots in Lightroom and it was 17 and a half minutes from the first shot of Ben to the last.
We managed to shoot with:
Pop Up Flash
On Camera Flash
Off Camera Flash
So, I hope I got the message across that you can work quickly and you can be creative with minimal equipment.
It's not about the equipment it's about the image.
