Anyone going?

I'm thinking about going but never been to one before.

Which days are best to go?

Are there huge crowds and lots of wankers shooting anything that moves? (I hate queues, crowds and wankers not particularly in that order)

I'll be taking my biggest lens to make sure I get some cracking shots

I'm thinking of buying one of those holsters for my camera, so I can quickly draw my camera to shoot anything that moves. Need to keep the safety off too.

I used to go 'Focus on Imaging' every year and I could never understand why people would want to walk round all day with a bloody great big Lowepro rucksack on their back and a monster lens around their neck...

And, no, there usually isn't much to photograph.

Best regards
Paul

I'll be going, in part to see some of my photos that are being used on one of the stands.

Go to an exhibition instead and see some photographs rather than dribbling over new kit...or "babes"!! Bailey is on in London and you are far more likely to be inspired by seeing his work than the latest way to spend your cash. I see work on here that is the same old, same old, every day..my impression is that most are happy to furrow the same narrow channel day in day out resulting in work that is less than inspiring. It's not even about quality, we all strive to improve all the time I am sure (still trying!), but its the lack of ideas? I would much rather see someone trying something new and not succeeding every time than another cliché glamour shot. As a point of interest how many on here have any print books from the "Great Masters" ..Lartigue, Bresson, Newton, Beaton, Bailey, Karsh, Man ray, Sieff, Mapplethorpe, etc, etc or is it just "instruction manuals"? And if you haven't worked your way through Basic Photography by Langford you should be ashamed to call yourself a photographer
