For me the day just got better and better. The highlight of the day, for me, was the part that I called “Live & Unplanned” because that’s exactly what it was. Normally I carefully plan out my lectures but this was something very much out of my comfort zone and I’m so glad I did it.
I did a mini photo challenge with three excellent photographers. They immediately got the idea of what I was asking them to do and despite the rain doing it’s best to stop us, we all managed to get all get some great images in the bag.
With the help of the audience, I spent 20 minutes skimming through the memory cards and applying a few Photoshop tricks. Below are a few of the best shots. Click to enlarge them.
All the above photos were taken in a five minute period in and around the lecture hall. The cameras were all second hand compact cameras bought from ebay for less the £20 and my three fellow photographers had no time to learn how they worked. It just goes to show what can be done if you focus your mind on seeing photos.
