This is a great video. Wish I could do work like this! One day…
I was in London for work again today. Walking from the train station to work (and back again) gave me some good opportunities for getting some photographs. I tend to shoot from the hip (hence the lower angle of the camera in most of the shots), whilst walking at pace (I don’t tend to stop to take shots as things are happening so quickly, I mostly pause slightly in my stride before continuing). I like the more loose and dynamic feel to the shots, rather than more carefully composed images. It’s more free and, to me at least, it also reflects the busy chaotic nature of people on the streets of London. There is a lot more energy there than in Salisbury, that’s for sure!
The London street work has been taking shape nicely over the winter. At the end of the winter I will put the work together into an e-book. I might include some images from last winter, as the anti-trump protests were pretty exciting to shoot (I would love to do more protest photography). I am not quite sure yet what the final work will look like, particularly as there is still another couple of months of dark nights, etc. left of winter to shoot (when I get back to London is another issue, however).
I will post a longer blog article up soon about my thoughts on street photography using the Sony A9. I might also write about how I approach street photography and some of the techniques that I use to get shots.
I hope you enjoy these images from today in the meantime. There is a theme to the shots, I will let you work out what it is. But, the emphasis for these photographs is content over form.
