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 organization's 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 of 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.
