This one I call my Sherlock Holmes Westminster shot.

I used two different textures over the photo to create this effect, which I explain how to do in my new eBook…

How To… Night Photography eBook now available on Amazon Kindle, Smashwords (where you can buy in any format you would like), and on my website.¬† www.exploretravelphotography.com

Happy hump day ūüôā

Sherlock Holmes Westminster

London, London, London what else can I say really?

London Tower Bridge and City Hall

Winter is here, the sun was out today but it was freezing! am so glad to be home now, a Heineken in my hand, a takeaway menu¬†in the other and the final of the X Factor on tonight, sad I know, but I did spend the afternoon out taking photos in the centre of London until my fingers felt like they were going to fall off, I went into Trafalgar Square and it was a mess there was rubbish everywhere! and the fountains weren’t even on…. so not very successful but I will get the shot I want eventually! but I walked for miles, in the cold with my Tripod and Camera, so I am very glad to be tucked up inside tonight with a beer and TV!

Getting to know me better fridays, me in Paris.

I have spent the day uploading my new ebook How To… Photography to Smashwords, and have finally got it so my photos can now been seen, so now i’m just waiting for them to approve it so that it can be on sale on Apple, WH Smith and Barnes and Noble, yah!

Just to change things around a bit today I have something completely different! I’m not very good at taking photos of people which means I need to get out there and practise!

Also big news for today, though not without its teething problems, my new ebook¬†How To… Night Photography is now available on Amazon Kindle, though I am trying to get the price down to under ¬£5 at the moment, also it will be up on Smashwords and my website¬†as a pdf and other formats as not everyone has Kindle.

I’m having to go back through my photos and put my signature on them as they seem to fly away, so here is a oldie but a goodie one of my first favourite photos, done with HDR (three photos at different exposures blended together) I have a tutorial for this is my new book¬† How To… Night Photography on how to do HDR’s as well when it comes out!

Still in London now and here is a photo of the Gherkin with Light trails while two business men wait to cross the road.

Wow, yesterdays photo went mad on Facebook, (Photography London and then shared on to Oxford Street ‘s facebook page) but was really quite on Flickr and on my own personal facebook, I don’t know what people like, but I do photography for me at the end of the day so if people like it, thats just a bonus!

Gherkin with Light Trails

11*365 Trying to get the Xmas lights in Oxford Street, Carnaby Street and Regent Street, I couldn’t quite get what I wanted so I ended up adding light trails to it as well to make it more interesting, though standing in the middle of the road taking the below was interesting, a bus driver pulled over and said “you have really expensive camera gear, do you like what you do?!”

I thought it was time to learn a little bit more about me….¬†¬† So now and again I’m going to post¬†a photo of me travelling.

I’m a New Zealander living in London, UK –¬†I have been over here for 5 years now with the reason I moved here was to be closer to Europe so that I could travel.¬†¬†¬† That I have done, I have been to 50 countries with a goal to reaching 100 at least.

I have always loved to take photos and I would always be the one that brings the camera¬†on a night out to record everything but I’ve only been serious about it in the last few years and only just this year got my super duper¬†camera so it unfortunately means I will have to retravel to those 50 countries to take photos all over again!

But for now here is a photo of me in the Amazon on the Peruvian side with a Snake! I love the guy laughing in the background!
