Speaker’s corner, Hyde Park, London.

IMG_2118 smll sze Today I’m posting some portraits from a recent shoot in Hyde Park, London, at Speaker’s corner. This is a meeting place where anyone who wishes can stand on a soap box and talk about, argue, debate, incite just about anything they wish to. As you can imagine it can get quite heated with various religious/political viewpoints being extolled/trashed depending on your standpoint. But it makes for some great photo opportunities and I’m never disappointed when I go there. I normally take my panasonic GF2 with a 14mm pancake and a 45-175mm zoom lens. I also always take my iphone5 for plenty of candid/street shots. Here’s some of my images from there.

As you can see plenty of animated characters. There’s always an argument going on somewhere and plenty of crowd participation as well…

So if your ever in London on a Sunday you could do a lot worse than Speaker’s corner for some great and unique photo oppotunities..Thanks for looking..

Speaker’s corner and a Sunrise adventure!!

IMG_0178IMG_0218 Saw this character at Speaker’s corner a few weeks ago. He wasn’t part of the usual retinue of speakers but I have seen him there a few times and managed to capture him joining in some of the debates!!

IMG_1904 IMG_2494 IMG_2504  Something quite rare for me, colour and landscape!! I decided for some unknown reason (other than to say I did it :O) to get up at 5am on a Sunday morning and attempt to capture a sunrise. The second and third images are from then and the first was tken a little bit later in the day. I’ve decided to post them because I took them and processed them all on my iphone. I  took multiple shots at different exposures and stitched them all together using an autostitch app. I processed them first using pro HDR and did most of my editing using snapseed. I also played around with some filter apps as well. I quite like the effects and although not the same quality as my DSLR I enjoyed the process more!

Speaker’s Corner 21/04/13

Another trip to Hyde park corner on Sunday. Very busy with glorious weather and the London Marathon being run. Just used my iphone which was really weird as I normally  go weighed downed with my Nikon DSLR and Panasonic compact and about 4 different lenses. It was quite a liberating experience but one which needs a lot of practice using all the different apps available and trying to get the effects I want. I also do a lot of post processing so this was a little strange just posting straight out of my phone!! I loved the way you could get in amongst the crowds and no one minded me taking pictures another weird development. I think I will stick with it for a bit as I’m getting quite disillusioned  with all the DSLR stuff! I want to get back to enjoying photography and taking pictures that I like…. I’ll keep you posted!!
