John Lewis Photography Event – #FindYourSummer

So Wednesday evening I was lucky enough to find myself on the Roof Terrace of John Lewis on London’s Oxford Street – where it had fortunately stopped raining – taking part in their Photography Event – #FindYourSummer – where there were representatives from Canon, Sony, Olympus and Panasonic (I’m a Nikon girl myself, a little sad that they weren’t there!).  I was there along with Helen of Hels Bels, got to meet the delightful Emily Leary from A Mummy Too, and also the very sweet Hannah from Hannah in the House – amongst others!

Being only my second proper blogger event, and being somewhat excited by photography (I love taking photos, I take a lot! As you’ll see from this previous post found Here) I was super stoked to be at this event.  There were some workshops to choose from and also lovely nibbles and food provided by Rossopomodoro.

Motion Picture
I went for the Motion Picture workshop and had a lot of fun hula hooping, jumping and generally being silly with Helen and Emily to show the capability of Panasonic’s 4K technology (taking 30 frames every second) – then being able to grab an 8MB JPEG still of any section of the video that you like! Christine was an fab representative from Panasonic – very open and easy to chat to.  Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop! Also got to go home with an 8GB memory card and holder! Result!

Gain Some Perspective
Workshop led by Barry from Canon – who gave a good talk about the Canon cameras – showing the touch screen feature, even being able to take the photo from touching the screen – and showing how you can get away from using the view finder enabling you to take photos from different angles and perspectives – especially on flat lays. Also discussed being able to link a Canon camera to your iPad or iPhone, which was rather cool.  Good fun and informative!

Olympus handed out a goody bag, the best bits were the re-useable bag itself, a mug and a 2GB USB key! Can never have enough storage!!!

Had so much fun – a very well organised event by John Lewis and would love to attend other events they put on!
