SHOOT FROM THE HIP: Occasionally you will turn a corner and a photograph is happening in front of your eyes! don’t think too much – just shoot!!
USING A FOUND FRAME. For this shot on Coney Islanf boardwalk in New York I placed my self low behind a gap in the fence and waited for some interesting geometric shapes to occupy the frame I had created. Its interesting to shoot through gaps like this as one adds layers and context to the photograph.
Sometimes its good to get up early. This was taken at The Notting Hill carnival early in the morning before the crowds arrived. I was photographin the flags above the road when the three Policemen came along on their bikes. Sometimes you get lucky!
This and the foillowing shot were taken in India. When travelling I often like to shoot within a self-imposed theme. These particular shots were for the theme of ‘Hands’ Shooting this way helps me concentrate and be discriminating, it allows me try different angles and have fun exploring the way I can picture my chosen theme.
