Hyde Park

Leave a reply

On the weekend my good friend Ben came down. Having not seen him for a while we had a lot to catch up on. What better way to do that than stomping around Hyde Park with cameras in hand interrupting conversation only to order another coffee. Once the best of the light started to fade we went and chased down a few beers because walking is a bit overrated.  It was nice to take a load of photos just for the sake of taking photos. I honestly wasn’t expecting to come away with anything decent but I got a few that I am happy with it. All shot on a Canon 5D MkIII with a Canon 135mm f/2 L if you were wondering.















Winter Sun


A redeeming feature of winter is when it is drenched in that golden glow from the low sun on a clear day.
winter_sun_006I love how the warm light shifts towards the cool skies at this time of year.
winter_sun_010I’ll be honest, I despise this time of year, dark mornings, dark evenings and a relentless onslaught of drizzle and overcast skies. It seems a monumental struggle to find any inspiration in this time of year.
So when on the rare occasion the sun does come out it offers some stunning light. I suppose it is making up for making this time of year as miserable as possible.
winter_sun_007 winter_sun_008 winter_sun_001I cannot wait for summer but days like this make the enduring months, that more endurable. Also, check out all those flares ❤

You make recognise the name “ShootingDave” from here, here or even here. Well now it is on wordpress too! Great huh!

Well this is not to be used a portfolio site like the others, this is for the more…uh…technical aspects of photography and for the more in depth features. So, what does that mean? Well lucky for you I will tell you.

I will be showing a lot of the photos that don’t make the cut on here, providing that they are worthy of residing on the internet. I will be also sharing more information about the behind the scenes on photoshoots as well as lighting diagrams and outtakes. If you are lucky and I surely mean “IF” I might even share some beads of wisdom when it comes to photoshop.

And for those of you that have been living under a rock until recent, I will be doing a full feature on this:

That’s right, on here I will be talking about my experience from the whole day as well as sharing a boat load of photos. You really should be excited about this! Unless you hate cars…and fun! In which case you should force yourself to like it marvel at my awesome photo taking skills!

Well that’s all for now. Until next time!
