Flash photography demo for Nikon photographers
Nikon photography at Nikonians booth : Our good friends of Nikonians were also present at the Photokina show 2008. If you happened to miss the booth, the Nikonians undoubtedly attracted your attention by pushing a leaflet into your hands in one of the huge halls. Nikonians is the largest and most active group of Nikon lovers and focuses on the amateur, semipro and professional photographer. The booth of the Nikonians attracted a lot of attention. Through Apple computers, a lot of Nikon equipment and demonstrations by photographers, Pascal Baetens and Gary Fong, the audience was given a good impression of how certain accessories work and which effect they can have. Gary Fong showed his Lightspere system II, an excellent accessory for flash photography.|
Nude photography by Pascal Baetens
Pascal Baetens demonstrated the art of nude photography. Naturally, the booth is overcrowded during the demonstration, with endless rows of visitors, all wanting to catch a glimpse of the demo. However, those who take their time to look further than the naked flesh, will experience the true art of nude photography. An art to use light and pose in order to capture a body in a composition which makes it art and does not become vulgar. Pascal shows that it takes years of photography experience and excellent social skills to be successful in nude photography.
Nikonians Podcasts for Nikon photographers
Nikonians is also the place to keep informed about the latest developments, experiences of other Nikonians members etc, by means of Podcasts. Even during the Photokina, Nikonians member Martin Joergensen mounted a Podcast at which he reproduces the Nikonians booth and part of the Photokina with the aid of some imaging material. If you take the trouble of listening to the Podcast, you should pay attention to the intro in which Martin presents Canon in a nice way… Those who love Nikon to death, yet are not connected to a club like the Nikonians, should go and check the Website of the Nikonians. It offers various activities worldwide, as well as interesting and appealing possibilities to get more out of your Nikon camera. And of course it is the place to learn from each other and to help one another whilst practising what every Nikonian shares: photography!
