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!
My instagram is all about Landscape. It's my passion and my love. But unfortunately it doesn't pay the bills. In fact it doesn't play anything at the moment. So I'm posting this to show people that sometimes your passion will get you to places where you can earn money, but you might have to change your subject somehow. This shoot was for a website Watches2U.com. A great company to work with doing their lifestyle shots. This is Roseanne. One of the four models for the day. A complete professional. You can use the same principles for landscape in fashion and lifestyle. Pay attention to your aperture. Know what your subject is (it's the watch in this and the look) and photograph accordingly. The light was poor on this day, but you work with what you're given. Check out Roasanne's profile at @roseanneeb. Don't worry, I'll be back to Landscape in my next post __________________________________________________________________________ #thephotographychap#fashion#watches2u#lifestyle#model#london#nikon#spitafields#glamour#watch#watches#outofmycomfortzone#beautiful#new#moody#pose#city#bokeh
