NTL 1 Completed

Posted: April 13, 2016 in Uncategorized

One of, if not our biggest, series of the year started last weekend in Eastleigh Nr Southampton.

A weekend of competition involving 751 competitors over the 2 days. To say this is hard work is an understatement. You effectively hold 4.5kg to your face for 90% of the day shooting the competition and before you know it it’s day 2 and we are at it again. The hotel was superb and the cooked breakfast was one of the best I’ve had in a while whilst travelling.

A cool 10,000+ images were taken and the new triple image montage was superbly received and sold well. The single and twin images also remain popular but the new triple is making it easier for parents to select imagery from the two days of competition. Many select 5 or 6 images they would like and thus reducing this to 3 final images is far easier than down to 2 images.

The drive down was simple enough, though a very long 4.5hrs. The drive back was horrendous with constant rain and too many drivers who simply have no ability to drive in such conditions. We saw several HGV’s have close calls with idiots who either didn’t indicate or couldn’t see out of their vehicles owing to misting of windows. This is basic stuff yet causes chaos.

So 1 down and 4 to go with this series. Bring on Cardiff in June šŸ™‚

The triple image below shows exactly what I mentioned above. The left and right images are from different days of the competition with the central ‘present’ pose simply selected for its nicety.
