Brighton’s West Pier: One photo, two edits

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.

Drone photography tutorial

With my children back at school, I took a short trip to the south coast earlier this week. I was armed with my new 10-stop filter for my camera and also my DJI Phantom drone. Depending on the weather conditions, I was either going to do some long-exposure photography of cloud formations using the filter or I was going to send up the drone to do some aerial photography of the coastal landscape.

Framing a subject. A simple photography trick when all else goes wrong!

This photograph was taken with the help of my youngest daughter, Izzy. She very kindly agreed to hold up this old picture frame so I could take a shot of a colourful market as we looked down at it from a bridge overhead.
