Trafalgar Square

2011-03-25

Night time at Trafalgar Square is always abuzz with energy. It’s so easy to find something interesting to photograph here.

Nip down here anytime of the day or night and you’ll be sure to find something – from midnight roller skaters, 4th plinth art works, and ample tourists climbing the lions, splashing around the fountains. At night, take nice long exposures with a Colorsplash flash and 800 ISO Lomo film for buzzing city snaps.

Trafalgar Square is only a short walk away from Charing Cross, Leicester Square, and Piccadilly stations.

    Lessons from Vintage Photography: People Dispersed in a Scene

    A documentary photographer cannot possibly order a crowd to disperse neatly into his frame. The thing left to do is to compose with care. Move a bit here, crop that element there, find a pillar of interest. It's a matter of playing with the tide.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
