I’m just about to head off up the motorway to the Focus on Imaging Expo [Link] at the NEC but before I do I thought I’d leave you with a short post…

Photo Shoots
First of, this week I’m going to be including a couple of ‘walk throughs’ from some recent shoots; one with talented female singer Chanel Fusco who I’ve had the great pleasure of working with before and the other being an Ice Hockey player.

Both shoots were done in the studio and I’ll be covering all the set ups and some of the post production involved, particularly for the Ice Hockey player where we came up with an ingenious way of keeping warm using the white tile board; I’ll explain all later 🙂

Photography iPad App
If you’ve got an iPad and appreciate great photography then you’re definitely going to want this new App from National Geographic.

Called the ‘50 Greatest Photographs‘ the App showcases some of the most incredible images that have graced the pages of National Geographic Magazine over the years plus information on the photographer and the story behind each shot.

Warning: If you’re anything like me, you’ll find yourself totally immersed looking through the images and at a high risk of missing your train stop; but the least said about that the better 🙂

The App costs just £2.99 and can be downloaded direct from iTunes at this [Link]

‘The Grid’ Premieres Today!
Don’t forget to set your alarms for ‘The Grid’; the new LIVE Photography Show hosted by Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski.

The first show airs today 12.30pm EST (5.30pm UK) and news is that Jeremy Cowart is the show’s first Guest.

    Hi Glyn,

    Looking forward to seeing the posts on the ‘shoot’.

    I was at Focus yesterday (Monday) – pity I didn’t bump into you. I watched the Dave Cross talk on the On One stand; as you rightly said in an earlier post, a very good speaker. He spoke about the cool device you can get whereby you can use an IPad to shoot remotely- looks really interesting.

    Did you see that Ist Cameras were selling the AC3 Controller for Nikon at the show?

    Sorry for going slightly off post.

      @DaveT…Yeah shame we didn’t get chance to meet up at Focus mate; question is did you spend out at all??? 🙂

      Glad to hear you caught up with Dave Cross too; did you get to have a chat at all? The OnOne App for shooting via the iPhone and iPad is a clever piece of’s actually what I used to take my profile piccie.

      Didn’t get hold of an AC3 at the show but I’m sure I’ll get my hands on one soon enough…lol

      Thanks again for stopping by and commenting mate; I really do appreciate it.
      All the best to you,

    Hi Glyn,

    No, didn’t get a chance to talk to Dave Cross, I was off to another talk/ demo somewhere. I think it was David Honl at the TFC stand. I also pulled in demo/talks by Adam Duckworth and Jim Marks on the Lastolite stand. There never seems to be enough time at Focus to look at products yet still take opportunity to watch some of these great speakers.

    Did I spend out? Yeah- I came away with an Eazybox Hotshoe kit and and AC3 controller for my Canon. Looking forward to the spring and trying out some outdoor shots with the new kit.

    What about you – any new kit? Or did you resist?


    • Glyn

      @DaveT…Sounds like you made some worthwhile investments there mate (sounds better than purchases huh 🙂 )
      I actually managed to resist (first time for everything) but I’ve a feeling there’s a couple of things I’ll be getting in the near future i.e. strip boxes for speedlights would come in incredibly handy.
