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?

Lock Down

January 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Ha yes a cleaver name I know. I’ve been sitting on that one ever since I wanted to go and photograph Shepperton Lock. Finding somewhere to take off with an RPAS is harder then it looks. I always look on Google Maps to scout locations and with that comes with a plan to be able to take off in a safe place. I had the perfect place in mind but I was too close to some trees. Places just look so different from the air.

I had to move to a different location the other side of the lock. The annoying thing is that rivers without a bridge are very annoying and I had to drive the long way round. The long way around being 30 minutes where I found I was on private property. Again another no go. I did a short walk along the river until I found somewhere suitable and prepared for take off. About 45 minutes after I planned to.

I think it was worth it. I think this was the max altitude of 120m. A nice way of looking at Surrey.
