Pure WheelPure WheelThere something about a white sky that I like about photos. Perhaps is the way I was taught how to use negative space in architecture to affect moods. That puts in in good stead to start applying it in photography. It is always in the back of a photographers mind when they are composing. The more you do it the less you have to think about what you are doing. It just sort of becomes natural to you. I am not sure where I am on that scale but I like to think that it is nearly natural. But if you stop thinking about composition, then what will happen?

On the 6th November, a group of photographers in my Arcanum cohort were set a task to document your day. The end result was a collection of images from around the world showing what all of us were up to. This day in the life of, has been put into a website that I will share once it is finished but all of the photos look great. You’ll just have to take my work for it.

My set of images documented my commute to and from Surrey to London, but I did make it out the office at lunchtime to go and visit the Tate Britain, which is a short walk away from my work. I spend about 45 minutes just wandering around taking photos of everything that looked interesting to me. The place is filled with huge rooms and on an unusually quiet lunchtime looked even bigger when only filled with one person. Ok you got me… there was actually a second person in this photo that I managed to remove. I was waiting there for ages seeing if he would move but no. Both people were trying to get the perfect shot of different paintings and were taking there time. Yes this meant that my subject didn’t move much, which was great, but the other person didn’t either. I think I did a pretty good job on removing him. The irony in trying to get the perfect shot backfired on me.
