The National Portrait Gallery's Annual Exhibition

As some of us (unsuccessfully) entered this competition, it would be nice to see which ones made it to the final exhibition. Then maybe take a few portraits of each other over tea in the National Gallery's tea rooms. And if you didn't catch my recent Manfrotto webinar on portraits, you can watch it here at your leisure:

    I would love to do this but working this Saturday. If there was any chance of a reschedule for the following week, I'd be there. Richard, hope you are keeping well. Happy New Year!

    Here's the plan for Saturday's meetup:

    2:00: Gather in the main foyer of the NPG near the ticket office and buy tickets.

    2:15: Go into the exhibition.

    3:00 (roughly): Gift shop

    3:15 (roughly): National Gallery cafe (that's the one next door, not the one on the top floor) for tea and cakes. I've booked a table for 10-12 people.

    Photographic task of the meetup: to get lovely portraits of everyone attending the meetup. Tag photos with #click_NPG #click_london on Instagram and add to Click London group on Flickr. The NPG itself and the National cafe are both great backdrops for portraits, though you might want to bring along some external lighting for the cafe as it's quite dark. If you have a spare hour, you might get some inspiration from my recent webinar (above) on portraits here. And I wrote a blog about the exhibition (google "iphoggy bad loser" to find it) if you're interested.

    My mobile is[masked] and do let us know if you can't make it. Look forward to seeing you!
