I absolutely love shooting #Bokehrama 's (the actual name of this technique is called the #BrenizerMethod , but bokehrama sounds so much cooler). With a full frame ( like the Nikon #D850 ) and a fast long lens ( i used my gem - #Nikkor 105mm f1.4) you can create a medium or even large format look. Same could be applied if you have a crop sensor body and want your photo have the depth of field of a full frameSounds like an idea for a tutorial Anyone would like to learn this?
Want to learn how to take better night photos? I made a tutorial where I share my 5 top tips and how to apply them when shooting #ShardLights Watch the full video on my YouTube channel - link in bioLike, comment, share, subscribe and I look forward to seeing your best shots in the Shard Lights photography competition
Humpday behind, hard work in the edit suite till Friday and then onto the weekend ...when I'm going to be working moreBut when work is fun, it's kind of doesn't feel like work, right?Isn't that the life goal? That's where we all want to get one day, and I wish all of you success in archiving it View from a construction site tour visit at #Newfoundland in Canary Wharf
Lights on #ShardLights are back till NYEThis year the spire gets illuminated with more colours that play a variety eye-catching sequences The spectacular display even pulled the #supermoon closer to earth for a sneak peek The Shard is launching a photography competition tomorrow to inspire Londoners to capture #ShardLights – stay tuned for more details
That view Whenever i got at least half an hour spare in the area, I always carry my annual #ShardView pass on my, so I try to go even if it's for a couple of photos. Don't think there's been two exact same weather and lighting conditions that I saw from up there, every time it's different, like this one, perfect blue sky, few clouds on the horizon, loved it
Beautiful blue winters day
35 floors up on a construction site of a new skyscraper called #Newfoundland and the city vista already looks sooo good This skyscraper will eventually have 60 floors and I can only imagine what the view will be from the top when finished
Whooosh with a view
Viewpoint location: #LondonStudentAccomodationWithAView , yes that's the hashtag for you to explore if you're looking to study in London and want to know where's the best dorm to live atThere's quite a few cool dorm towers with a view, but this one - the @urbanestuk on #WestminsterBridge is definitely the cherry on that cake
Beautiful sunsets always bring out a smile on my face and it seems if you look around you, there's always another face out there somewhere smiling back at you Viewpoint location: one of my favourite cheap yet ridiculously exciting attractions with a view - the Emirates Air Line cable car across the river
Summer vintage sunsets
I don't do photoshopI never replace sky or add light flares The photos you see on my account are most like single shots or occasionally 3 exposures HDR composites. This one was a single shot on the Nikon #D500 using one of my favourite vintage #Nikkor lenses the all manual AI-a 35mm F2.8 Perspective Correction (shift mechanism) from circa 1984 and it's one of the sharpest lenses I have in my arsenalIt also produces these beautiful flares at F11 / @nikonschooluk #NikonD500
Sky high living
Students living at many of @urbanestuk towers across London have some of the finest views from their lounges and terraces, not to even mention the window views they get to wake up tooThis one, in the new and thriving district of Kings Cross, not just have the views but also overlooks lots of other very fascinating architectural projects happening in #CentralStMartins right at its footsteps.
Good morning London
Are you a sunrise kind of person? I'm notHowever every time I get to wake up for it and drag myself on location, I love it and tell myself I should do it more often when possible
Viewpoint location: #VantagePoint , a residential tower in Archway by @essentiallivinghomes .
Love shooting quirky architecture, and #BrunswickCentre is certainly up there on people's love or hate list for being the quintessence of brutalist architecture.
I share more of my architectural work and personal explores on my second account @shiftedview so I encourage you to check it out too
Roofs over #Rotterdam
#TravelTuesday It was the vibrant mix of architectural styles, as well as the special event of publicly accessible rooftops ( @dakendagen010 ) that got me excited about visiting the city and it didn't disappoint I'm already looking forward to going back to Rotterdam in May 2018 for #Traverse18 conference with @traverseevents and @rotterdam_info where I'll be speaking about photography and Instagram. Also most likely I'll be hosting a meetup or a photowalk, and if you know me, you can bet on me including a sweet exclusive view somewhere up high as part of it
