A creative blend of Black & White architectural, portraiture and street photography, developing your composition and lighting techniques.

Expert tuition, easy to follow practical exercises and clear advice improve your B&W photography in London.  Understanding why tone, form and contrast are important in B&W photography will help improve your images.  Learn to use ND (Neutral Density) Grad and colour filters to improve your B&W images. The vibrant London locations: St Paul's, Millennium Bridge, the River Thames, Borough Market and the South Bank will enhance your photography with exciting images of people, buildings and London.

We will discuss the ‘candid’ vs 'staged' street photography, do you only take what you see or do you try to influence the scene? The importance of narratives and context, what are you trying to say with your picture?

Is a telephoto or wide angle best and does a prime lens make it easier to get the image you want? 

From Paternoster Square near St Paul’s explore the Cathedral’s architecture, then taking advantage of the excellent views of London's historic landscape walking across the Millennium Bridge past the new and old Globe to busy Borough Market.  Have lunch and photograph the vibrant market capturing great street photography pictures.  Catching the tube to Waterloo for a short break and further street photography locations.  Ending the day with a set of contemporary black and white portraits in St James’s Park
