As a photographer, I get a lot of my work via referrals from previous clients and from networking. The core of my networking initiatives comes via BNI - Business Networking International
with my being a member of the Notting Hill Chapter
which meets every week on Thursdays from 6.30 to 8.30am!
A number of times a year we have evening social events varying from wine tastings to ten pin bowling and this month a night out at the fashionable Electric House Club
on the Portobello Road.
I took along my Leica M9
with 21mm F2.8 Elmarit lens using it at ISO settings from 400 to 1600 and in the moodily lit,essentially dark club got some great shots of our members having a good time, getting to know each other better and chilling out whilst having excellent beers, cocktails and wines helped down by a wide range of delicious food.
The Leica has an uncanny way of capturing the subtlety of the light and being small and unobrusive, people act naturally in front of it. You can see more in the slideshow
