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 frameπŸ‘πŸ»Sounds like an idea for a tutorial πŸ€”Anyone would like to learn this?

That viewπŸ‘ŒπŸ» 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 itπŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»

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 arsenalπŸ™ˆIt also produces these beautiful flares at F11 πŸŒ…πŸ’₯✨/ @nikonschooluk #NikonD500 πŸ“Έ

Love shooting quirky architecture, and #BrunswickCentre is certainly up there on people's love or hate list for being the quintessence of brutalist architecture.
