Some of my most recent Photo Shoots!

This is some of the stuff I've taken on my most recent photo shoots. And a little about the story behind them. A potpourri if you like of the hows and whys and the wherefores of why I took them and what drew me to them in the first place, And for those who want to know the technical details of shutter speed, etc. etc. then you will find that here too. Whenever I can, I will also provide some local history of the shot, thrown in for good measure. Hope you like it

I thought I might like to try something different from my normal genre. Urban photography.
I think as a photographer you do tend to get stuck taking the same things.
O sure I love doing landscapes and seascapes but Urban photography I am finding quite a challenge, especially as living where I do there are no big cities to get your teeth in to.
Finding that something special is not as easy as it might first appear.
This was one of my first attempts at urban photography and I think it turned out rather well. I hadn't realised at the time of shooting that Tess had sneaked in to shot but I think it adds that certain something to the photo. Don't you? It was taken at Berwick, somewhere I haven't been in many years, but somewhere I really do need to revisit.

Another in my series of urban photography. Again taken in Berwick but could easily have been taken in Victorian Whitechapel, London. This kind of scene with the fog rolling down the steps just smacks of black and white. I don't think it would give the same feel if it was done in colour. I think I am starting to get a feel for this kind of photography and hope to do a lot more in the future. Street photography on the other hand is a different matter, but something I also intend to tackle. So watch this space.
