With Christmas and the New Year coming up, it’s just the time to head out and start exploring London.
Kew Gardens celebrate this period with a large set of lights that are a must see.
With this happening, it’s a great chance to be out there exploring the garden to see some of the special lights that they are using,
Decided to mainly focus on using my AF-S DX 16-80 alongside my D500 so I didn’t have to constantly change
While it’s possible to see
You can see some of the shots I took below…
A short walk up and down Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus in the evening to try and take some of their Christmas lights.
I was there late in the evening with the hope of having
Notting Hill & Central
I decided to head over to Notting Hill in the morning with a plan to try some Portrait shots. This, unfortunately, wasn’t possible (mainly because of my confidence). I was attempting to try and use my 50mm Prime Lens but may have to try again within a larger area such as Covent Garden as I wasn’t particularly confident in Notting Hill with everyone being very close together.
When watching some videos on YouTube about the confidence you’ll need to take portrait shots, I need some more confidence to go up to people and randomly ask them for some portrait shots.
After Notting Hill in the morning, I travelled near to Tower Bridge to take some 30/50mm long distance night shots. This was fantastic, and I used my new Syrp 67mm Small Variable ND for the first time. Will be definitely using it again to enhance more evening shots.
