Shade and shadows

I had a great day out with my camera, and some old and new friends, in London last week. I joined an Urban Photography workshop with Brian Duckett, which was both educational and entertaining. You need to know how to use your camera, and then Brian leads you into more adventurous shots, with ideas and examples throughout the session. He cleverly takes you to locations where you can practice the ideas he has shared, starting at the South Bank and ending at the Barbican.

It was just a shame that London is so quiet at the moment. I’d have loved a few more people around to wander into my shots.

If you fancy joining a similar workshop with Brian, you can find out more here.

  1. School of drama was cleverly captured as it is such a dramatic shot. The shadows, the shade, the white dress and orange bag, the mirror. Excellent.


  2. Hi Deb – love the areas that the workshop Brought you too – and this post fit the theme so well
    also – regarding the number of people in the photos – well remind you that soon enough the streets will be filled and maybe the photos are more precious because of the rare time to catch such space.
    in fact, the photo that opening the post is brilliant with the two folks left and two folks upper right – normal balance with the shadow and shade and lines and shapes – wonderful
