My original plan this year was to do a monthly blog. Well, so far that failed; February flew past in the blink of an eye, and March is currently true to its name. Mid-February I was excited. Glow in the Park was a new thing for me. I am keen on night-time photography, but night-time and running seemed like something different. And it was. You can't beat the sight of 500 runners all in hi-vis clothing, outfitted in headlamps and glow sticks. It was like rush-hour without the cars. Even the old Halloween costumes came out to play :)
If you have never tried a night-time event, I recommend it! They are a lot of fun and you can learn a lot in a few minutes. I'll admit I was terrified. In the end though, unless you try something new, you won't know if you'll like it. I'm going to try it again :)
Winter is the perfect time of year for photography shows and conferences. I have been to two this year and I can't help but find them inspiring. It was the first time I'd been to The Photography Show this year, but it is definitely on my list for next year. There is so much to do. I really enjoyed how interactive the show was, from the garden near the live stage, to the lighting demonstrations and the catwalk. There were loads of people on hand with advice, tips and tricks. Even though all the stands are trying to get you to spend money, its nice to keep track of what is out there and what companies are around.
Also I met these guys :)
One of the things that will stick with me is resourcefulness. Be resourceful, use what you have. And have fun. April is around the corner, and until then, I will be playing. Using the Force.
