OFC: The Show Must Go on

March 8-11, San Diego, CA--Despite the on-set of the pandemic and weeks before the stay at home order, the annual OFC, The Optical Fiber Communication Conference was held.  Attendance was smaller than previous years, but, there was tremendous amount of information and networking.  Many sessions were broadcast on the internet feed for those who couldn't attend. Technology ruled the day, speakers were able to make their presentations online and interact with participants.  

As part of a team of photographers, it was vital to document the event showing the vibrance and engagement of the attendees.  Given a schedule and working independently, finding those situations which highlighted the event.  

All images made in available light with a Nikon Z6, 24-120 Nikkor lens and 70-200 Nikkor lens.
