Bewdley

On a lazy Sunday we decided to visit Bewdley for a pub roast dinner and a few quick photos. 

All these images are taken using my Leica M240 and the Zeiss 50mm Planar f/2.

Birmingham Weekender

The Birmingham Weekender pretty much rounds up Birmingham's summer of events in the city. Similar in nature to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival the Birmingham Weekender hosts a huge variety of diverse events throughout the city.

I dropped in for Saturday's Colours of Birmingham Parade and then stuck around for a few of the performances at Victoria Square. Some of the parade's performers were more than happy have a few photo opportunities behind the Town Town. Finally I headed back down New Street for more street performances before heading home knackered!

Here's a handful of some of my favourite images all shot on Kodak Portra 400.

Shooting London's Lines

Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to shoot with professional street photographer and photojournalist Alan Schaller.

Although Alan shoots predominantly in black and white there was a lot to take away from the day, including loads of great locations and tips how to shoot 'geometric' street photography. Most of the time was spent discussing my own work, areas to improve and how to develop a consistent style.

Here's a few of my images from the day, taken indoors or during the brief moments the rain stopped.
