Florida Holocaust Museum - Networking Event

Despite the threat of very stormy weather, the turnout for this networking event was strong.

I have been getting on the local business networking scene more and more lately.  By the number of familiar faces I see at these events, I am not the only one following the calendar of events on the Saint Petersburg Chamber of Commerce website.  I did not know what to expect for the mood and atmosphere of this networking event with it being held at the Florida Holocaust Museum, but as I approached the room and heard the usual vibrant conversation I quickly realized that there was nothing to be unusual about it at all.  I was greeted by the friendly curator of the museum and soon had a conversation with the public relations consultant for the museum about photographing their next official event.  

Kathy, on the right, I met at last night's Young Professionals networking event in Clearwater.

I took a brief tour of the museum after signing in.  One of the two exhibit floors is dedicated to revolving art collections.  A series of large paintings inspired by the Holocaust was on display.  I did not expect to see a fine art collection in the museum, so was pleasantly surprised.  The first floor contained exhibits more toward what one might expect in a Holocaust museum.

I turned my SB-600 speedlight off for a few shots and let the display lights provide the backlighting effect.

As always with such networking events, I felt the most comfortable when my camera was up to my eye.  In the right center is Ford Kyes, someone I have gotten to know through the Chamber and these networking events.  He is a master at that, and in fact makes his living as a business coach.  He was generous with his time to me tonight offering advice and encouragement for my photography business.
