With this months Autumn Winter 2017 London Fashion Week I was inspired to work on the disciplines needed for this style of photography. I also took the opportunity to photograph the models and fashion bloggers attending London Fashion Week.

All photographs on my Nikon D90 with SB910 Speedlight and Fuji X100T

Being prepared

benaffleck20160111_1-5065Working in Central London always means there is always something different going on and its not always possible to carry a bulky DSLR with lens every day. I always have my iPhone on me which is great for taking a photo to document the moment or for a night out with friends. However I always usually carry my Fuji X100T for being able take a photo which will allow me to capture the moment in a way I see fit.

On Wednesday 11th January I was walking along the south bank after work and Ben Affleck happened to be meeting fans for the Premier of his new movie at the BFI South Bank. I had the X100T on me so took a few photos, knowing I wouldn’t really be in a position to get a good portrait I decided to capture the atmosphere of an outdoor film premier in London’s mid winter and in the street style I have been working on over the past year and a half.

Take a look at my album  London at night: Low light street photos for more from this series.

The Music Scene

tomedwardsphotography_openmicbedroombar1209_15pgI went to an open Mic night  at the Bedroom Bar in London’s Shoreditch to take my photos of my friend’s Pop, Hip Hop, net-soul group, Delphi. This gave me the opportunity to try out Live performance photography taking my Street Photography into a bar and using the low light to create more atmospheric photos all with my street camera, my Fuji X100T.

I’m pretty happy with the results. Check out more photos in my Events page

Atmospheric conditioning

At the end of August in London’s Soho I worked with my musician friend Akara (Twitter @akaraett)  to experiment with the use of natural light on a Summer’s evening to add to to the atmosphere in a series of street portraits. This meant being creative with the tools we had and trying to control the light rather than having complete control. Street and portrait photography is an aspect of photography I really enjoy so this will be something of a project of mine

Capturing the moment

laughter

Over the past few months I have been taking more street photos than ever with the purchase of my Fuji X100T fixed lens camera. The fixed lens camera bring me closer to the action capturing the moments which show London’s versatile city life from street scenes, to friends events.

This week i attended my  artist friend Kathlyn Pagador www.kpagador.com meet the artist event at Store Street Espresso in central London. The photos were taken using the Fuji X100T which is also a  talking point due to its retro style. These are posted them in my London Living section  of the site. See what you think.
