St Paul’s Cathedral opens late for a few days in August so I booked my tickets and headed up to the top of the dome to capture this view of the City of London at sunset. Jump into the post to read how I got on which also includes a top tip to allow you to revisit St Paul’s for a further 12 months free of charge!
This week’s photo is a long exposure photo of the London Eye taken on a late summer’s evening in 2018. On top of the story behind the photo, I also share some of my other long exposure articles that will help anyone looking to improve their long exposure technique.
Have you ever wanted to experience a city like Venice and have it all to yourself? In this article, I talk about capturing this sunrise shot at St Mark’s Square and I also list 3 reasons why I think everyone should try to venture out before sunrise when visiting a new, normally busy location.
This week’s photo was another cityscape from St. Katherine Docks in London and instead of a long exposure, I battle with some huge dynamic range to eventually produce this image with some dramatic sky over London.
After a few hours wandering around Brighton taking photos of the seafront, I captured this 3 minute long exposure of the Palace Pier whilst I sat on the beach, relaxing and taking in the last light of the day.
I set out to capture this classic Venetian cityscape while the light was good and with a clear focal point in the shot. It is not often that a particular photo I am after comes together, but on this occasion, I was happy with the result. Jump in to the post to read how it went.
I love to look at old paintings of how London used to look with St Paul’s Cathedral dominating the skyline and this photo reminds me somewhat of those images and a time before the rest of London grew taller.
Even if conditions aren’t great for landscape photography, there is normally a photo to be had by changing up your technique. I was in two minds to head out on this particular evening, but persevered and captured this black and white, long exposure photo of Tower Bridge and The Shard from St Katharine Docks in London.
There is only one way to capture a city without all of the other people in your photos, and thats to get up early. In this weeks article, I share one of my favourite photos of Bruges taken in 2018 just a few days before I head off to Belgium once again.
