2020 PHOTOGRAPHY IN REVIEW

A Roller Skater in London

Hooray! We made it through 2020!

Let’s be honest, it’s no secret that last year wasn’t much fun for any of us. As much as we would like to have seen the end of this dreaded C-19, it seems we’re going to have to keep our chins up and stick together a little longer. Well, not “stick” together as such, that’s against the rules, but at least stay positive and keep those virtual hugs going. Continue Reading

A British Seaside “Out of Season”

Walton-on-the-Naze

Street Photography in Dusseldorf

Capturing Street Photos in Dusseldorf

With a trip already planned for Dusseldorf, I thought it would be a great opportunity to squeeze in some street photography while I was there. At the time of booking it felt like a great idea to stay an extra day to capture some street photos, however, following 2 days of drinking German beer, I was starting to wonder if it actually was. On the surface of things, street photography seems like it’s an easy task of just pointing your camera at interesting things. But in reality, it takes an immense amount of focus and concentration to plan your frames. As well as the confidence to capture moments and remain inconspicuous. Continue Reading
