Focus on Imaging 2009

A gallery of photo's taken at the 2009 Focus on Imaging show at the N.E.C., Birmingham - see: http://www.focus-on-imaging.co.uk/

It was a BRILLIANT show and I recommend you try and get there next year if you didn't make it this year! There's so much to see and try out - and, if you're lucky, you could well come back with some memorable pic's!

With this gallery I've tried to make use of various processing and framing techniques, (including one or two that are HDR'ed), with many of them taking advantage of the excellent OnOne plug-in suite that I started using around 6 months of so ago. It's a great suite of plug-ins that includes Genuine Fractals enlarging plug-in, Focal Point, PhotoFrame Pro 4, PhotoTools 2 and a colour tuning plug-in.

A few of these shots were taken with pro lighting rigs that were being demoed on various product stands, but the majority were 'chancers' ~ picked off at distance with no flash at all.

There will be more to come...

ENJOY!

N.B. If the people pictured object to their photo being here, please e-mail me at: chrisspracklen@me.com and I will happily remove them. I wasn't able to complete release forms due to the nature of the event but, hopefully, my photo's will cause no offence to anyone concerned and I can assure all those looking in that I will not be making any commercial use or profit from any of them.
