Central London Walkabout

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Got together with Neal, Mitesh and Neal’s friend Shaz this past weekend for a few shots of the city.  I was hoping for a longer day so that I could put the strobes & light stands I was hauling around (my poor back) to use, but that will have to wait for another time I guess.

Anyways, here’s a couple of shots I rather liked plus a few more in the gallery.

The Gherkin

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I’ve wanted to get out and take a few shots of The Gherkin for a while now and finally got off my ass and made it happen.  Unfortunately, I had forgotten how much lighter it is in the evenings and didn’t leave myself enough time to wait for dusk, so there aren’t enough lights on for my liking.  Fortunately, it’s only about a 20 minute walk from home so I can always go back and try again!

Anyways, here are a few photos and the rest are in the gallery.

Geotagging & more HDR images.

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

I picked up a JOBO PhotoGPS last week as part of the selection of new kit I’m picking up for my holiday in April (all that remains now is a portable hard drive and a new camera bag, and maybe some new filters…)

The idea behind Geotagging is to record the GPS locaiton into the EXIF information of an image.  You can then link the images to google maps at the (roughly) exact point you were when you clicked the shutter.  I’ve still got a few kinks in my workflow to iron out as well as figuring out how to do the linking, but we’ll get there in the end.

Anyways, as part of my testing I was out last night taking a few images.  Unfortunately, somewhere between photomatix, lightroom and photoshop the gps information was stripped out of the exifs so you’ll just have to take my word for it that these were taken in London.

I think the images will back me up.

These are with my other Tower Bridge HDR images in the gallery.
