The London Eye, Thames and Tower Bridge photography
The World Press Photographers exhibition is an amazing set of photographs from professional photographers across the globe, they cover documentary, portraiture, sports and wildlife. The majority of the images are powerful, emotional and in some cases disturbing and to be in these photographers positions and take these images deserves the upmost respect, you can take a sneak view on the World Press Photography website but with the event being free I would recommend you take a look for yourself.
After the exhibition we took a walk along the South Bank leading towards St Paul's, Tower Bridge and then over the bridge back long to the Tower of London and the London Eye. With the evenings drawing in now we were able to catch a mix of different lighting from 3pm through to 6pm, everybody had tripods with them for long exposures and a mix of lenses. After New York I decided to stay in tourist mode and used the Canon G12 compact again, I am back in London tomorrow working and lugging my every day gear around, so may as well make the most of the opportunity by travelling light. I used Paul's pod bean bag tripod cushion for the night shots, camera settings varied but mainly around 15-20 second exposures, ISO 80 and F8 (the G12's maximum aperture). Once back on the train back home it looked as if everybody had captured some great images from the day.
