A blurred photograph of Venice

Venice, Blurred II

Another experiment, this time a second take similar to the previous post. Taken during the last weekend of Carnival in Venice, Italy. Field Notes With my Lee filter system mounted and Big Stopper attached, I held the shutter open manually while blindly trying to frame what was ahead of me. It …

San marco in venice, blurred

Venice, Blurred

This week, we have another of these experimental blurred/camera movement images. This time from a perhaps more recognisable place. This was taken during the last Carnival weekend in February from the side of a Vaporetto heading back to Piazza San Marco from San Giorgio Maggiore. Field Notes With my Lee filter system …

A photograph of rooftops in Marrakech at sunset shot from a balcony

Marrakech Rooftops at Sunset

I’ve been thinking about Morocco and Marrakech the past few days. The landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and the desert are simply fascinating and have stayed in my mind. So I thought, why not post something from Morocco? This photograph was made from the balcony of a restaurant on our last night …

The view from The Shard

One more from London today. It was Christmas day, and we went to The Shard in the early morning to have a coffee and tea on the 33rd floor. This was the view. Processed with an initial preset from VSCO Film, but then taken quite a different direction. Gradient on the …

Looking up tall buildings in London's South Bank

Looking up in London’s South Bank

From last December in London, the buildings near Tower Bridge in the South Bank. Processing wise, this photo didn’t go through a lot of work. Starting with the X-Pro1 RAW file, I did some initial exposure adjustments. Then I started from a VSCOFilm Black and White Tri-X preset. From there, …

Looking down a side street in Marrakech

Marrakech Side Streets
