Learning Outcomes – 2,3

I love exploring and photographing more unique places within Central London, however, its sometimes key to go back to more of the well-known landmarks, such as the Tate Modern to take photos. It also had the benefit of a rooftop view allowing me to see Central London.

I love exploring and photographing more unique places within Central London, however, its sometimes key to go back to more of the well-known landmarks, such as the Tate Modern to take photos. It also had the benefit of a rooftop view allowing me to see Central London.

From the rooftop, I could see East to as far as Canary Wharf and then West to the BT Tower in Fitzrovia.

I was using my Nikon D500 and played around with various lenses but settled on the Sigma 30mm with the Syrp Variable Neutral Density Filter. This combination of lenses and filters allowed for the change in light as this series of photos were taken at dusk. I used a GorilliaPod to steady the frame and to decrease the shutter speed as the Tate Modern does not allow a full Tripod.

  • The first picture I took when up there
  • ISO 100, f/1.4mm, 1.300 sec
  • ISO 100, f/3.5mm, 1.30 sec
  • ISO 100, f/1.4mm, 1.320 sec
  • ISO 100, f/3.2mm, 1.20 sec
  • ISO 20, f/3.5mm, 1.40 sec
  • ISO 20, f/3.5mm, 1.40 sec
  • ISO 100, f/1.6mm, 2.0 sec
  • ISO 100, f/1.4mm, 0.8 sec
  • ISO 100, f/1.4mm, 0.8 sec

From past experiences, whenever I can, I will move down to ISO 100 to ensure the light is as clear as possible. The only other thing I’d like to do is stay up there longer when it’s dark to practice the use of my new Syrp Variable ND Filter. The filter stops light reaching the camera sensor, therefore allowing me to leave the camera with a higher aperture for a longer amount of time.
