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?

A Walkie around the garden

To actually understand the title of this image you have to get a grasp of where this is taken. London has recently has a number of strangely shaped buildings pop up on the skyline. Firstly there was the phallic shaped Gherkin, then the Shard. That was closely followed by the Cheese Grater and now, at 20 Fenchurch Street, there is the Walkie Talkie building.

The sky garden on the 32nd floor has recently opened up to the public. Tickets are free if you are not booking in the restaurant that you can see here overhanging the atrium space. And that’s one very expensive place to eat. This is one of the first images where I have used Luminosity masks to process. It’s an alternative HDR method that gives more realistic results. You mask several areas and manually brush in the parts of the image you want. I want to try and get better at this. It’s going to take some getting used to.
