Graduations 2010

3 08 2010

The last month has been hectic here at F2images. The university graduation ceremonies at Liverpool Hope have taken place over the last couple of weeks. This usually means starting at 8.00 am with the gowning and finishing at 10.00 pm with the formal evening meal.

Photos have to be processed and put online each day so an 18 hour day becomes the norm. I use Photoshelter to archive and offer the prints for sale to the graduates. So far this is working very well.(link here to photo shelter site)

Among the Honorary Degrees awarded this year was Cherie Booth QC who received a Doctor of Laws,Sir Anthony Kenny, Fr Michael Lapsley and Professor Rajmohan Gandhi

Also managed to catch actress  Kim Cattrall outside the Anglican Cathedral after her award ceremony from Liverpool John Moores University.

Primary school children also have the opportunity to graduate. This year over 500 did so from Knowsley Children’s University Project.The project awards children for attending after school activities

For this busy period the I used two D3’s and two lenses 24-70 f2.8 and the 70-200 f2.8AFS VR 11 exclusively.Both camera and lenses performed flawlessly.Will need to stock up on camera card and batteries though before the busy September period.
