✨ How To Photograph London ✨
Street photographer ‘Joshua K Jackson’ shares his tips for taking great shots in the capital 📸
Start somewhere familiar
Photograping strangers can be intimidating. As a beginner, I assumed the role of a tourist in Trafalgar Square. It helped me overcome my fears and gain the spatial awareness I needed.
Don’t get hung up on camera settings
There’s no shame in using your camera’s automatic modes, especially when you’re starting out. People will remember how the photo makes them feel, not the technical settings you used to get there.
Developing your eyes takes time and graft. Start by snapping whatever grabs your interest. One day, a door will open to reveal something special.
Keep the Photoshop to a minimum
I typically spend no more than 2 minutes post-processing a photo. Usually it’s just simple adjustments to the colours or curves, to enhance what’s already there.
Avoid zoom lenses
Removing focal length choices helps you to judge the framing and composition better. Use a prime lens - one with a fixed focal length - to give your images a more consistent look.
