Film set shoot

Shot I took this weekend of the actor Tim Watson Mitchell. I was shooting stills on the set of the film 'Miles Away' in a studio in South London.

Strobist: 580EX into brolly camera right, 580EX behind the actor camera left and a big old light from the film set in the background to flare the lens.

New multimedia slideshow

The other day I took part in a three day conference at Cumberland Lodge in Windsor, I was asked to present a photo story to a group of International Relations Phd students from the across the UK, France and the US. After realising the expense of a printed exhibition I decided to try a multimedia presentation using the Soundslides plus programme. It was quite a last minute thing and I have to say a big thanks to Edward Bainton who helped greatly by composing an audio track. The presentation went quite well except for the techy cock-up for the first 20 minutes (eek...I figured anyone who was left after that mess was bound to be genuinely interested). Anyway luckily although my laptop wouldn't seem to work with the projector, I'd put it online as a last minute afterthought literally as I was leaving my flat, thus I was able to use their laptop and wireless connection to show it. After the showing there were about five or six questions from the floor which I tried to answer as intellectually as I could (hey I was dealing with an audience of phd students...). All in all it was a really interesting experience though and great to get feedback. You can click the above image to view the slideshow online.
