This week has been all about photography. In addition to attending the Bedrooms Of London photography exhibition, I spent a day in Brighton with Darren Coleshill of the Photalife blog. Together we strolled around the Marina, sea font and city centre with our cameras. It was during our time together I took this image of what remains of Brighton’s iconic West Pier, which was destroyed by fire in 2003.View Post
Take an over-excited blogger, give him a camera, a tripod and some Christmas lights and see what happens.View Post
There are two elements of photography I have rarely experimented with: Lighting and a fast shutter speed. This week I combined the two to take this image of coloured water splashing out of a glass. By my own admission, it is a little rough and ready, but I don’t think it’s too bad for a first attempt.
You know that irritating feeling when you know you’ve taken an awesome photograph, but can’t find it anywhere? Be it a computer file, memory card, stored on the cloud somewhere, you just can’t find that picture. That’s what happened to this image of Salford Quays in Manchester.
If you like bright, colourful lights, I think you’ll like this picture. It’s a long-exposure shot of the Square Mile in Central London taken from Hayes Galleria on the south side of the River Thames.
