With the onset of the UK winter, the Motorsport season comes to a close and the colour slowly leaves the landscape, leaving photographers like me searching for new subjects to shoot and new ideas to experiment with.
I decided that this winter I was going to venture into Central London, with the aim of creating a collection of photographs that would capture the great capital in all of it’s majesty; just after the sun sets and the city lights come to life.
The collection is still very much a work in progress with many more iconic images to follow in the coming weeks and months, but I thought I would take the time to share my progress so far and show you all what I have been up to…
A 30 second exposure of the London Eye, captured just after sunset on London’s Southbank.
Image settings: ISO 100, F/20, 30 seconds, (14mm)
A twilight photograph of Blackfriars Bridge, shot from the OXO Tower on London’s Southbank.
You can see St Paul’s Cathedral on the far left of the image and the City of London in the distance behind the bridge.
Image settings: ISO 100, f/22, 30 seconds, (82mm)
A long exposure twilight photograph of the London skyline, shot from The Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park.
This shot features many of London’s iconic landmarks including; St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, The Shard, The Gherkin, Tower 42, The Cutty Sark and many more.
Image settings: ISO 200, f/20, 20 seconds, (72mm)
A late evening photograph of London Docklands and Canary Wharf, shot from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park. If you look closely in this image you will see the green laser light that marks the Prime Meridian, or 0 degrees longitude on all world maps.
Image settings: ISO 400, f/20, 20 seconds (82mm)
All of the above images will soon be available for sale in our online store as certified Limited Edition fine art prints.
Keep your eye out for the new additions to the collection, I have some great ideas and awesome locations still to visit!
