See some of my recent stories below that I usually update each week. The majority of these will be within London but I’m always desperate to travel further whenever I can.

The Shard

I’ve always refused to enter The Shard because it’s extremely overpriced, however, I finally did it the other day. Thank god it was a fairly sunny day so you can see some of the good pictures I managed to get when at the top….

Improving the use of Lightroom

I’ve just started to use multiple sections within Lightroom that I’ve never previously managed to use.

– When working with shutter speed, think about the aperture you want to use
– Always be in control of the Shutter Speed. Never go too high or make it blurry
– The graph within Histogram is to do the colours of the picture
– Use Hue, Saturation and Luminance

For homework, I’m working on some close-up shots and testing these in Lightroom afterwards.

System and Workflow: Project 1

A week using the other settings within my Nikon D500 rather than Manual that I usually use. Much quicker I know but I really do enjoy using Manual to ensure that every picture I take is exactly how I wanted it to be.

Bank to Waterloo

Walking from Bank back to Waterloo is always great for the completely different sets of buildings and designs, making so many different types of shots 📷.

DSC_6750

I forced myself to only take 1 lens which is my Sigma 30mm F1/4 rather than having to always change but the shots are still great.

I Love Winter!! 🌃

Most people hate it coming up to winter but for photography, it’s absolutely incredible!!! The different changes you can get at night can be stunning with the mix of both having both light and dark are very interesting and can be a lot of fun.

Have a look at some of the shots I got when walking back home alongside the river after catching the train back from a fun day out down in Brighton.

Portraits: Notting Hill

This was my first attempt to start asking strangers for Portrait shots. It has always been a hard thing to do for me as it’s always been a bit scary. This video was a lot of help and pushed me out today to just be confident with it.
