It was a bizarre event to be at.

It started with snapping arrivals outside in the dark with on camera flash, which would be wildly out on exposure, and AF was hot and miss. Then they confined all the photographers to the bar apart from PA, with a few drinks on the house. Then it was downstairs for a Remembrance book signing with politicians and minor royals.

Finally we got to photograph various Jewish celebrities and Holocaust survivors. Ben Kingsley was the other actor.

The lighting on this was mainly straight on from a Stolen due to a high ceiling. It's surprisingly sharp, which makes me wonder why for press head shots I regularly throw 20 megapixels at them, when a full page tabloid could come off 3
Brilliant image
