I love capturing iconic London landmarks at night, and like to add light trails from buses and cars when possible. Here are a couple of shots from last night.
A lovely session with Edward, Gemma, Holly and six week old Caspa.
Autumn is a favourite time of year of mine to be out shooting, for obvoious reasons. The range of colours is a joy to the eye and the light is often perfect, not too bright and contrasty. Nature has its final throw of the dice before the bleakness of winter sets in (which can have its own stark beauty). A melancholy fills the autumn air as nature surrenders and lets go of what it can no longer afford to carry, what energy is left returning to its roots to nourish and sustatin itself through the barren winter months.
Today I spent the morning in one of Londons many parks, Greenwich Park, which has a fabulous array of autumn colour - leaves turning ochre, yellow and crimson. I decided to shoot with my aperture 'wide open' giving a narrow depth of field which isolates the colourful leaves against a blurred background. I hope this gives extra impact. I finished the shoot with a Flat White and a slice of Chocolate, Orange and Mandarin Loaf - perfect!
I hope you enjoy the results, and feel free to comment and or share on social media.
I visited the London Photo Show today, at the 5th Gallery just off Brick Lane, London. There were an eclectic group of exhibitors from Street Photography to Cityscapes and Travel Photography. It's always good to see what your contemporaries are doing and to support such exhibitions. There were a number of photos displayed on perspex, which I found to be a really interesting way to show your work. It gave them an almost 3D quality with a very modern feel. On my way to and from the show I took out a few mins to shoot some of my own street photography.
