WHY FOLLOW THE CROWD TO FOCUS?
HARMAN technology Limited, the company behind the ILFORD brand of black and white photographic products, and HARMAN brand of inkjet papers, will be exhibiting on stand C2 in Hall 9 at the Focus on Imaging Exhibition, at the NEC Birmingham from Sunday 3rd to Wednesday 6th March 2013.
The emphasis this year is about getting back to basics using traditional black and white film to create long lasting images printed on real black and white photographic paper. The stand will feature demonstrations and displays from professional photographers, and HARMAN staff will be there to help with enquiries.
Create … Invent … Inspire …
Inspired by film, Professional photographer Keith Moss will be presenting model shoots throughout the show and talking about how he uses film to create unique black & white images. The ILFORD PHOTO STUDIO will process the films and print pictures on ILFORD MULTIGRADE RC paper at the show. There will be a limited opportunity between the model shoots for visitors to have their own portraits taken.
ILFORD Master Printer Dave Butcher will display prints from his new book “City Light” that will be available to buy for the first time at the ILFORD PHOTO stand. Dave is one of the UK's leading black and white landscape photographers and exclusively uses ILFORD PHOTO products taking all of his images on medium format ILFORD FP4, and then making hand prints in the darkroom on ILFORD MULTIGRADE FB paper.
The HARMANexpress Shop will be stocked with a range of ILFORD Brand films and paper, and HARMAN PHOTO inkjet products including HARMAN CRYSTALJET ELITE RC. Visitors will be able to benefit from many Show Special Offers
New at Focus 2013, and supported by images from Leon Taylor, will be the HARMAN TiTAN 8x10 Pinhole Camera designed and manufactured in the UK by Walker Cameras. This follows the extremely successful introduction of the 4x5 inch version at Focus 2012.
Also new for Focus 2013 will be the announcement of the OBSCURA Pinhole Camera by ILFORD. The new product, with some very clever features, has been designed for pinhole enthusiasts, hobbyists, and students alike, aimed at bringing fun into this increasingly popular genre.
