Conference photography in central London

This was one of those conferences where the lighting was right “on the edge”. Just about light enough to shoot at a high ISO without needing to use flash, but I did need a steady hand at times especially with the long lens shots… I generally find available-light shots are far more atmospheric and interesting than flash-lit ones in these kind of situations – for a start you can shoot through people and have a nice out-of-focus foreground without running the risk of lighting up any backs of heads. And obviously it’s less distracting for the speakers and audience if you don’t use flash. On the few occasions I do get out the speedlights at conferences, where possible I’ll try to bounce the light to give a more even lighting, and use it sparingly…
