Beginning Photography

The musings of a budding photographer

Exposure Leeds

with 2 comments

No new photos today, but an experience to write up. A friend of mine (Gav, see his blog in the links on the side) invited me along to Exposure Leeds. Exposure Leeds consists of a group of togs who get together for various activities, ranging from model shoots to talks. Tonight was apparently a bit out of the norm, we had a talk on Photography and it’s impact on Christmas through the years. The talk was given by a chappie from the National Media Museum in Bradford and featured many slides of images taken since the the 19th Century.

Then, togs being togs, we retired to the pub for a good chin wag. I was driving so on the coke, not a real hardship though as the conversation flowed, everything from photography to knitting and anything in between.

Certainly a bit out of the ordinary but I met a great bunch of people, all it seemed called John (no, really, there were about 10 Johns out of 40 people) and I’m looking forward to getting to know them over the coming months.

So, no new photos, but I’ll make the effort tomorrow and see if I can find something interesting.

  1. Just found this – thanks for the ‘shout’ and the write-up. The chappie form the Media Museum is Brian Liddy, Curator of Collections Access.

    Take care… Jon

    • Hi Jon
      No problem at all. I haven’t been along for a couple of meets but I hope to be a participant in the near future. Thanks for reminding me of Brian’s name, I couldn’t remember it for the life of me.
