The Countdown Has Begun
We are now starting the
countdown to the 2010 Convention. Already HQ are preparing for what is to be
the biggest Convention, The Society have held so far.
Focus-on Convention Speaker -
John Henshall, the internationally acclaimed, and often outspoken, digital imaging guru, has been awarded a Master of Arts Honorary degree by the University for the Creative Arts, for his ‘profound influence,’ in the development of digital photography technologies over the past twenty years.
Said Henshall, who trained as a BBC cameramen and worked extensively as Director of Photography on programmes such as ‘Spitting Image’: “This is a wonderful and completely unexpected honour for me. It’s true that some of my press articles and seminar topics met with scepticism and opposition in some quarters of the photographic industry but I was simply arguing the case that digital was not a threat but an opportunity for all of us in the industry.”

Lighting - Professional Techniques for Studio
Working from the studio used to be a complicated and expensive task requiring great skill and extensive equipment to ensure that the imagery was as effective as location photography. Now a more minimalist approach is not only possible, but preferable thanks to developments in camera and lighting technologies. Minimalist Lighting explores how this shift can be exploited with less complexity and a smaller budget, which offers the reader more flexibility than ever before to create varied, sophisticated imagery from their studios.
