Our 2017 Selection of #Edinburgh #Festival #Photography

A selection of some of the images we took during the Edinburgh Festivities. As ever, lots going on, too much to try and see, random things happening on the street and plenty of photographic scenes to capture.

First up, the official Edinburgh International Festival opening, celebrating 70 years of the Festival and Fringe, including ‘Bloom’.

And some performers from The Wedding Reception out in Princes Street Gardens, looking the part as Bride, Groom, Mother of the Bride and embarrassing Father of the Bride.

And finally, here’s where you can currently see our prints on display.

henni.photo Prints and Etchings at 3 locations

Currently, our prints and etchings are on display at McDonald-Greene Jewellers in Bruntsfield,  at Dundas Street Framers and in the Art Collective at 139 Princes Street.  All work is for sale and ready to take away, but please feel free just to go and have a look and tell us what you think. Nothing beats seeing a print on the wall – you get a much better idea of it than on a screen.

An Overdue Update #Edinburgh #Photography

There’s a common theme amongst bloggers where they talk about a lack of recent posts and being busy with things, so here’s our contribution to this without the long discussion about it.

Firstly, here are a few recent images, which would have been in the now non-existent posts from the past wee while.

And a reminder of the Retina International Photography Festival 2017, now in the final weeks so a last chance to see the Royal Photographic Society exhibition at the Drill Hall which finishes tomorrow and the Emerging Talent and Shutter Hub exhibitions, both at Ocean terminal and which finish on Sunday 30th.

Paul was delighted and flattered to be among  the winning entries – listed below showing the category, the title and the photographer.

‘After Dark’ – ‘View Down Princes Street at Night’ – David Tomlins
‘Changing City’- ‘Canal Dreams’ – Sue Williamson
‘On the Inside’ – ‘Vaseline Hair Tonic’ – Paul Henni
‘Festivals and Event City’ – ‘Hogmanay’ – Mengqi Du
‘In all Weathers’ – ‘Snow on the Way’- Fiona Johnson
‘Fashion and Retail’ – New Wave Coffee Shop to a Tea – MJose Fernandez

Due to the response to the call for entries, there is also an additional mini-exhibition of the six winning entries and a further twelve runners-up as a set of eighteen canvas prints.

We went along for the opening event and were amazed at the size of Paul’s image under ‘S for Shopping’ within the exhibition.  Lynn had to snap the proud photographer next to it.

A henni.photo update #Edinburgh #Photography

It’s probably time for a wee round up, as we’ve had a busy 2016 that continues into 2017.

Retina Scottish International Photography Festival June – July 2017

Having been part of the Retina Scottish International Festival 2016, it is good to see the plans for this year’s Festival, which will run from the 17h of June to the 30th July. Lynn has recently joined the Retina Team as a board member and Paul is working as one of the volunteers.

The Festival 2017 line-up is now out, including details of the Photomarathon and Portfolio Reviews. All funds raised contribute to keeping the Festival running and making sure that access to the exhibitions remains free. You can also donate online or at each of the exhibitions.

Art Collective launch night

There’ll be a launch night on Thursday the 15th June from 18:00 until 21:00, so a chance to come along, see what it is all about about and meet the artists.

Here is a small selection of what we have currently on show in The Art Collective and The Dark Room.

Thrift Is Blessing (It Says Here). @beautifuledin @Beathhigh #Edinburgh #Photography

A handy moral guide, if that’s your thing, to financial rectitude, like sticking your money under the bed  until a rainy day. Ah, so that’s where things went wrong with the UK banks, it’s always raining so they were always spending. Simple when you think of it, really. I am a financial genius.
