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.
Not usually one to take black and white photos, when I arrived to take this photo of Brighton’s West Pier, I knew a colour photo wouldn’t work. Read how I was able to visualise the final image while out on location helping me achieve the look I was after.
This week’s photo is taken at Tower Bridge from the bottom of the stairs, looking back up towards the road level. I chose this photo as it represents a shift in my photographic style. Read more to find out why.
This is one of those locations I bet many photographers have whereas they know there is a great shot in there somewhere but never quite manage to capture the full potential in the resulting photo. In this post I revisit one of my favourite views of the Shard and once again, try to capture the epic photo I know exists there.
We spent three incredibly relaxing days navigating our narrow boat along the Grand Union Canal with some friends and family and I managed to grab a few minutes here and there to take a couple of photos along the way.
These are the photos that make getting up early and travelling, bleary eyed into London worth it. This is one of my favourite photos I took in 2018 of, in my opinion one of the best views in London so what better photo to start my new Weekly Photo series with.
