TPS Report Part Three

19 Sep 2022 10:28PM   Views : 376 Unique : 255

Tuesday will be the third and last day of TPS, so plenty of time left to get on down there and immerse in a fantastic world of photographic ephemera....

The show has several different aspects, and I was definitely impressed with the amount of training/education that was going on. Using our kit better has to be a good thing, as is the broadening of ideas and concepts. Then there is the kit itself, and from all the manufacturers we are getting cameras with unbelievable features. It is difficult to name one star camera amongst so many bright new stars. Lenses too are getting better and better all the time, with now a huge choice of mirrorless optics freely available. DSLR options may be reducing, but Canon, Nikon and Pentax are all still in the game.

Other items featured are magazines, although I didn't notice if there were any of the usual free bags on offer, drones and courses on the use of drones, printing, paper supplies, lighting and all the other accessories that go with photography.

A few more pictures today from our Saturday visit to the show, the rest being on the first two blogs and also the report on ePHOTOzine.

Historic Tyldesley - The Technical College

There is a road sign that says "Welcome to Historic Tyldesley" or something similar, and for a while we scratched our heads wondering what excatly was historic about Tyldesley. Well, slap on the hand for us, because there are plenty of things that w...

Buile Hill Greenhouse - Progress Report

We were down at Buile Hill Park in Salford today, just to see how the mansion and the Greenhouse were getting along. The mansion is under restoration at the moment, but the greenhouse was set to be demolished. This was such a wonderful place, with bi...

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...

Great set along with the other two uploads. I use to go every year when it was in London but since it's moved a bit of a way at the NEC.

John I just love the last image and I hope you don't mind me adding a mod.

Not been for years as I no longer drive, so very nice to see your record of the show.
The " Photo Live " image caught my eye, bet the model never learnt that expression at modelling school Wink
