Its been a long time since I did a blog post and in fact I did wonder whether to continue them. What got me thinking about putting a new one up was the fact that recent visits to my website have included visits to my old blogs. I do not however anticipate that regular blog posts will be re-introduced, at least not anytime soon.
Since July 2018 and the last blog post, I have taken my LRPS assessment twice. The first time I failed as some of the prints were deemed to have some bronzing (a printing defect). I was however offered a re-submission and this happened in November 2019. This time, with a few different images, I passed so in photography circles I am now John Wilderspin LRPS. This has led to me being asked to do a couple of demos (although these were on studio photography, another passion of mine) and a couple of talks.
In preparing for the LRPS assessments I needed to evaluate my sports photography and become a bit more focused on what I wanted rather than doing photography largely for the competitors. As a result I have done far less of the type of photography I had been doing. I still however covered the Waterbeach running festival, Gransden show (horse rings) and a few parkruns, although no longer in an official capacity. I also retained my membership of the Silverstone racing club and have enjoyed many days at the track.
So here we are at the start of a new decade and it kicks off for me with a new sport...fencing. I shall be covering both days of the Cambridge Winter Tournament on 4th and 5th January. Unfortunately, however, I have been asked by the organisers not to show the images openly, so all the resulting images will be hidden and password protected, something my website enables me to do quite easily.
Due to family issues and work commitments, I will probably not be doing much sports photography then for a few weeks. I would however like to add my LRPS panel and generally update the website, so that will probably need to be my target for a few weeks until both those things settle down.
