Liverpool Photo Walk January 2015

In January 2015, Matt Hart organised a free photo walk around Liverpool. It was a cold and very windy day but there was a great turn out with over 100 photographers.

I chose my Fuji X100s for this walk. I wouldn’t have to worry about carrying a lot of kit with me and if the weather got too bad at least it would fit in my pocket if I needed to protect it.

Here are my shots from the day. A big thanks to Matt for organising it. I look forward to attending more of his events and hopefully a workshop or two as well.

London Street Portraits

In November 2014 I was lucky enough to get a place on a Street Photography workshop run by Eric Kim. I wrote a longer post about the weekend on my Photography Basics site. It was a great weekend, I learnt lots and was very happy with the street portraitsĀ I got with the guidance of Eric and the other people attending the workshop.

While I was taking these street portraits, I really enjoyed chatting to the subjects rather than just taking a quick photo and walking off. A smile and a pleasant attitude is all that you need most of the time.

Attending a workshop like this has also spurred me on to run workshops myself in the future. Hopefully the not too distant future.

Anyway, this is my collection of London Street Portraits. I use a Fuji X100s for all of these, a fabulous camera for digital street photography.
