A day of exhibitions in Leicestershire on a glorious Saturday. The sky is out, the clouds have disappeared leaving a true sense of summer. First up was Leicester pro commercial photographer, Keith Cooper. His work was on display in the old library in Leicester city centre now home of LPPG. His work included a magnificent 14 metre pano of Leicester city centre at dusk. Wow the detail was amazing and is the highlight. Others works of Leicester landmarks are there taken with a mixture of Tilt and shift lenses and switched panos using a Gigapan device. Click here to visit his website. Right to the L&LPS exhibition at the BRITE centre, Braunstone.
On Sunday we were meant to take part in a studio session in Birmingham with a company called Ikon Studio. We got this through Groupon. All I can say is “What a scam”! We turned up for 11am start. The door was locked. There were around 9 of us all waiting. Others had tried to contact the studio but to no avail. On checking his website, this had totally changed since the beginning of the week and now resembled a movie review site. We have since complained to Groupon and ask for a full refund. When my partner and I went on a 2 day break to Llandudno earlier in the week, also organised through Groupon, the evening meal was the WORST I HAD EVER TASTED! So I’m not expecting much. Clearly when the owner doesn’t show. I’m considering unsubscribing to Groupon. It’s like cheap tat from a seaside gift shop. So instead we went into Birmingham City Centre for some urban photography and made a day of it. What fun! We must come back when the light’s better as we’ve marked some very nice locations. Below are some images I took from the day’s urban photowalk.
