Day 332 / 365

The name is simply the directions to this shot. Just out wandering the city running a few jobs and the light here just blew the saturation sky high. It’s taken on an odd look with the black drainpipe reflecting the sunlight and the orange building opposite. I just loved the almost monochromatic range of hue though.

All being well I have another city shoot tomorrow afternoon. Chance to give the 135L a good test.

On another note I managed to get some of my portrait work critiqued by a fellow photographer the other week. His style is very different to mine which is one of the reasons I thought he’d make a good candidate to ask. It’s always a useful exercise to get critiques as they very often get you asking questions of yourself that otherwise you may not have asked. One of the big things I gained from the critique has me trying out the EF135mm L f2. I feel that it’s too long for my style but I’m willing to try something different and understand that in doing so I’ll be further refining my style.

Otherwise you’ll be in the hedge.
Useful notice for the sat. nav. followers out there.

So Saturdays portrait shoot got cancelled, still I got to have coffee with the man who was going to assist for me. Good to have a chat with someone else looking to move themselves and their craft onwards.
