Getting lost in London

Getting lost in London - student project

Huge thanks to Trashhand for developing such a wonderfully thought out and inspiring class! I've added my images below and tried to capture a number of different scenes from around London, please feel free to leave any constructive feedback you have! Looking forward to developing my learning and taking more classes in the future.

  • One candid portrait - I love how happy this guy is! He saw me taking pictures of passers-by and decided to strike an impromptu pose. He looks really striking against the simple backdrop and really celebrates what it is to be a Londoner!

  • One image showcasing motion (utilising blur) - This image was taken at the Tate Modern in London, during the Georgia O' Keeffe exhibition. The image shows people socialising before entering the exhibition. I love the sense of scale you get from the building and all the lines thrown up by the perspective, which I think really lend themselves to the subtly blurred figures.

  • One "look-up" shot - This image was taken in the banking sector on Liverpool Street, London. What I really like about the image are all the different shapes you can see, along with the way the building on the left is wrapping around the main structure.

  • One image taken at night (from the above three categories) - This image showcases a London night bus passing through the West End. I love the movement and colours thrown up by the bus and passing traffic.

All images were taken with a Canon 6D and a 24mm lens. 

Thanks again, for such a wonderfully inspiring class.
