Church House lecture for Oxford University

The Oxford London Lecture at Church House, Westminster London

At the start of February I took photos of The Oxford London Lecture for Oxford University. The lecture was held in Church House, Westminster London. The hall really is stunning and was a great venue for the lecture on ‘The Gene Revolution’ by Professor Peter Donnelly. I was glad that I had brought my Sigma 10mm fisheye lens to capture the grandeur of the hall.

Lionel Barber, editor of the Financial Times led a discussion on the implications of the Gene Revolution after the lecture.

Working on events such as this you have to try and make yourself as un-noticed by the audience as possible. Despite there being very little ambient light I didn’t use flash, which meant in order to get sharp shots I was generally using ISO 1600+ and lenses wide open at F/2.8 or F/1.8. Using a tripod or monopod is really helpful when trying to get sharp shots when shooting long shots such as the one above. (ISO 1600, f/2.8 at 1/90 second with Canon 70-200mm L lens). Flashes can be very distracting to the audience, and using only available light keeps the ambience of the room.
