Just got back from a great London night shoot with my new toy a Nikon D800, but had to stop shooting as my battery ran out. Was supposed to be 5 or 6 of us but I ended up shooting on my own. I only have one FX lens a 50mm prime.. so expect to see lots of 50mm shots during the next few weeks
Here we have a photo of the side of the wobbly millenium bridge and St Pauls in the distance. This was shot as a 30 second long exposure and as a single RAW file. Tweeked with some Nik Software Color Efex Pro4.
As I walked past Battersea power station the other day I took a number of pictures of it. To be honest it’s about the most ugliest eyesore of a building you could imagine, but it fills up the whole landscape and is very imposing. I expect to hear on the news any day that it will be demolished so I will saviour it incase with some photos.
I took a number of just the building itself but the one I prefer was this one with it set in the background. I jazzed up the surrounding photo to keep that grey feeling you get from looking at this building.
I never knew that Londoners called the millenum bridge the wobbly bridge so I looked it up and read that they closed the bridge for a couple of years shortly after it was opened in order to fix the fact that it was wobbly. Here’s a night time photo looking under the bridge.
