Darlene Hilderbrandt's free E-book has many wonderful suggestions for improving your photography. In the first challenge, she encourages us to pick a subject and shoot it from 10 different perspectives. Each shot must look and feel different in such a way that the viewer wouldn't know it's the same subject.
My subject has been "Little Venice" for the last few days.
I have featured a number of shots of this particular location in my neighbourhood and today, I would like to share a few more the form of "The Little Venice" gallery.
These shots are quite interesting because I was armed with my D90 set to an Aperture of F8 - Shutter Speed varied to around 1/1000 sec, ISO 200, WB Cloudy and I decided to work with my Prime Lens 50mm. This forced me to work for the shot and composition.
Here are my shots:
Little Venice forms part of The Paddington Basin - a long stretch of The Grand Union Canal.
This Canal can take you on a boat ride, right up to The famous Camden Lock in North West London.
This particular stretch near my home leads to Paddington Station.
Along the canal route are some really fascinating sights.
This shot is of two gigantic statues.
They stand just below the A40 Flyover. The two statues are well over life size and cut quite an imposing presence.
Imagine being a professional Taxi Driver?
This is where your day could begin or at any train station location in the city of London. This area forms part of Paddington Station. Many travelers come out at this point to continues their journey. This is quite a sight, hundreds of taxis all waiting to take their turn, picking up the next passenger. They must have a lot of patience to do their job. The London Cabbie are quite friendly chaps and do there job well in my experience.
This was a lot fun, and I achieved a big breakthrough in my camera walk - talking to strangers. Today, I feel like I have stepped into a whole new world "Steet Photogrpahy". Check out my "Street Life Commentary" to learn more.
