Photo project from an airport lounge seat

June 16, 2017  •  1 Comment

I was in Oslo, Norway during the week of 12-16 June for the Escenic A/S user group meeting, called Escenic Days. Escenic is a software company I work for specializing in a high-performance, easy-to-use web content management system called CUE, including an awesome live blogging tool, CUE Live.

During the user group meeting, Michael Taylor (@MTaylorisms) made the point that smartphones are the "secret weapon" in any organizations web content delivery strategy. We are an "always on, always connected society."

On my way home, I took a seat in the British Airways departure lounge with an hour to go. Within all the compass points in my field-of-view were people engaged and engrossed in their mobile devices. The scene was a revelation...even for those of us dealing on a daily basis with content strategies to engage new customers and content consumers. Anyone producing content - including professional photographers - who underestimates the power on mobile is setting themselves up for disappointment.

So from my seat in Oslo's Gardermoen Airport, I began to photograph my fellow travelers. I steadied my Canon 7D (mk1) on my knees and shot using Live View to avoid attracting attention. I basically just swiveled the camera on my knee, in an arc. In other words, I didn't leave my seat while shooting the images in the gallery below.

A classic Canon 28-70 F/2.8 was used for all the images.

Your keen observation skills are always in play. It can be striking to step back and observe this connected, yet disconnected, world we live in. Love the images you captured in a single arc.
