Some of you may know that I’m a fan of Scott Kelby. He’s a great photo educator, both for photography and software.
Anyway, last year he arranged a worldwide photo walk to celebrate the launch of his Digital Photography Book Volume 2. This year he organised a second one, co-incidentally at the time of the launch of his The Digital Photography Book Volume 3. I signed up for the London South Bank walk, ably led by Dave Newton of EOS Network. We started at 5:30pm at the London Eye and wandered for around two hours along to the Millennium Bridge, taking in the skate park and other photo opportunities on the South Bank. The scheduled proceedings having finished, we repaired to the Anchor pub and commandeered a corner of their balcony – well, we got a small corner which soon became a big corner once we scared off the natives by talking of ISO, f-stops and lens choices, along with a lot of rivalry between Canon and Nikon users who only called a truce when piling in on the lone Olympus user! After a supper of fish and chips (and mushy peas – yay!) we headed back out for the sunset and the following twilight.
