Spending More Time With My Camera

It’s such a relief and joy to have spent more time with a camera in my hand recently. Since coming out of hospital my energy and physical health have lowered opportunity and motivation to take my cameras out with me. Canary Wharf was the first Photography trip, and I’ve been out recently as well.

I’m getting used to my camera, settings and operation again. However, I feel my “eye” is good.

Here’s a couple of recent photos, taken on my Olympus OMD EM10 MK III

Leeds – Emulating Andreas Gursky

My recent trip to Leeds was a wonderful opportunity for photography. I did tryto seek permission to shoot from the top of Bridgewater place (a modern business and residential tower block) and also from the Double Two Hilton. Both to no avail. However I made use of multi-storey carparks, and one tenament style tower block with an outside balcony (a bit sneaky but well worth it).

I have put together a little gallery by grouping together shots that reminded me of Andreas Gursky, whom I briefly reviwed for exercise 2.2 (seen here). I will be adding a few other photos, and a couple of panoramas that I made from the tower block, to my gallery over the next few days.

In the mean time, I hope that you enjoy Leeds.
