Hey everybody! I think this is old, but ima gonna post it again as it's part of my ongoing 'London at night' theme I've been uploading. Good old tower bridge with the traffic going by. Actually, it's a hard place to photograph from as the bridge bounces, and if you know about your exposure times a wobbly bridge and long shutter speeds aren't ideal!
This one somehow managed to come out sharp, and a London cap offered that nice single orange steak across the image! I hope you like.
Hey!! It's #throwbackthursday so here is a 'semi' throwback. This pic is about 3 years old but I'm pretty sure I've never posted it before. (I can't be arsed to check!) You can't use tripods here as it's private land, but you only live once right? So I did. Gangster.
Thank you to everyone who commented on my post yesterday. Nearly everyone preferred this post as a shot. It was taken on.... *drum roll please* my iPhone! Yes. I was walking past giving an impromptu lesson on composition with the person I was with and snapped this quickly. The more technically educated people pointed out the depth of field and lens flare must have meant the bottom image was the DSLR. But the post made the point that you can get pleasing shots using just the equipment you carry with you every day. Really means there's no excuse to start taking photos if you want to! I'll be back with some of my usual landscape stuff soon! See you on the other side _______________________________________________________________________ #thephotographychap#nightphotography#iphone7plus#housesofparliament#bigben#london#new#night#city#iphonephotography#composition
Do you need thousands of pounds/dollars worth of equipment to get good shots? I get a lot of messages on Instagram from you lovely people, and the most common question is "what gear do you use?" Well I DO have a professional set up I've spent a lot of money acquiring over the years. But this post is to highlight that you don't need to spend fortunes to take quality pictures. These two images were taken a few years apart. One last weekend, and one sometime in 2015 ish. One is on an iPhone 7 plus (granted a decent camera on the phone) and one was with the Nikon D750, with a 24-70 2.8. A £3,500 set up. But which do you prefer? I'm interested to know who likes what?
It's an ice cave. That's a cave made from ice to you and me. After a drive in a Super Jeep (they are a real thing) through some pretty harsh terrain, we arrived at the base of a glacier to take on ice caving. It's a pretty impressive sight but quite eerie being underneath a glacier. Anyway, I survived and so did @glennfosterphotography. Might go back next winter when there will be new caves after the summer melt!
