Launch Event at the National Media Museum
Joe Cornish and Tim Parkin were asked to give the keynote speech at the fifth Photocamp event at the National Media Museum in Bradford on Saturday (16th October) and also presented a session on landscape photography. The event was also an opportunity to launch the On Landscape (previously Great British Landscapes) magazine and over the preceding week there were a couple of small announcements to the photographic community via Twitter, Facebook and Flickr with the goal of informing a few people in advance of the magazine’s launch on Monday the 18th of October. We are delighted to announce that over 300 people had expressed an interest in the magazine since these first announcements, far exceeding our expectations.
We both really enjoyed the event and from the feedback it that so did our audience. The talk raised some great questions from the audience about the use of ND filters, HDR, inspiration, artificial lighting in landscape photography and more. We should also add that the Pictureville theatre as venue is amazing, having access to a half million pound digital projector was stunning (if we had known, we could have prepared our pictures to make the most of the 2048 x 1080 resolution!).
The talk has been recorded by the Photocamp organisers and as soon as we can provide a link to it, we’ll upload it and make sure it appears in the rss feed. For those of you who haven’t already done so, if you want to keep up with all of the announcements as they happen, the best way of doing so is to follow @landscapegb on twitter or ‘like’ http://www.facebook.com/landscapegb . Over the next few weeks we will try to create a variety of rss feeds and email newsletters that will summarise things either on a daily or weekly basis.
