    The Way Forward

    When I tell people that I like photography, the first thing they normally ask is ‘what type of photography’.  Looking back at the photo’s I’ve taken, that is a very difficult question to answer.  The glib response is that I try and take and take a good shot.  The problem is that it’s difficult to…

    Good light everybody…..good light!

    I’ve written in a previous post about the Sean Tucker YouTube videos, and how much they have helped me with my photography. Both in my post-production but more importantly with taking a picture that, where possible doesn’t require any. He also reviewed a book that has had an impact on my photography but also on…

  • Photo a week #3 – “Old and New” – 122 Leadenhall Street

    Street Photography in the City of London

    The title says exactly what is in the tin really!  Still getting to grips with a 52 project I’d hope to start, but thats stuttering a bit at the moment.  Maybe a bit too much procrastinating (see previous blog post) Anyway, decided to get off my backside and what started off as taking pictures of…

  • A quick nap

    A quick nap

    This guy must have been REALLY tired to decide he needed a nap halfway across London Bridge! This is the first image I’ve taken while actually concentrating on taking street photography.  I’m actualy quite pleased with it, both in that I took the shot in the first place as opposed wishing I’d taken it after…
