Yesterday was an unusual day.
I turned down my first ever photographic engagement and I gave my first ever photographic talk.
Pretty impressive huh?
Well, I guess it’s all in how you sell it.
My work asked me if I’d take some photographs at an event they’re hosting in a few weeks. Sadly, it conflicts with actual real work for me, so I had to decline. Annoying, but it was lovely to be asked.
And my talk? CPA had a members choice evening where 6 members were asked to talk for 10 – 20 minutes about a selection of their photographs. I picked 8 photographs that represented things I’d tried with photography, from HDR through to portraits and trying to sell stuff.
Good fun, but more nerve wracking than I expected. I also felt a little down after I did it as the other talks contained photographs which just blew mine away. So, If you were talking to me after the event and I seemed ‘funny’ I was just feeling a little exposed and needed to run away!
That’s not to say I won’t do it again…
Oh, and that reminds me – People Photography 2009 must be coming round again.
