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?

Old before new

August 09, 2015  •  2 Comments

One of the great things about living in London is the contrast between old and new. The city is constantly changing. I can’t even keep up with the amount of new skyscrapers there are. For all I know there could be a building nicknamed The Ladle to follow on from the kitchen themed name of The Cheese grater.

The building that lurks behind Tower Bridge here is the Shard. It is actually quite hard to get them lined up when you are looking for a certain perspective. Of course when the tripod police are lurking nearby as they were here, every shot adds some fun risk to the equation.

Think James Photo
Police are normally ok. It's the private security that you have to worry about. I think the usual think that goes through their mind is that a tripod means taht you are a "Professional" therefore you shouldn't be taking photos on what they call private land, even though it's not. Another excuse they give is health and safety. "someone could trip up". They even say this when there is no one around and you are out the way in a corner where no one can get to. As you can tell it's a sore spot ha.

Beautiful shot. Love your attention to detail in post production, really creates it's own mood.
Maybe a naive question but why do the police care if you're using a tripod?
