This is the final part of 3, of the 2 days shooting in Cardiff Centre. These are a mixture of Full Colour and Desaturated shots. I like the desaturated look for some shots when I think it would look better than either B&W or Full Colour. Adjusting the amount of desaturation for each shot until […]
Here is the 2nd of 3 posts of 2 days in the centre of Cardiff. These again are Black & White.
This post is Part 1 of 3 and is a collection of shots from 2 days I was in Cardiff City Centre. I’ve only included the Black & White shots in Parts 1 and 2. Part 3 will be a mixture of Colour and Desaturated. Enjoy!
A mixture of sun and clouds made for an awkward day regarding the light. Still had a good time shooting, and here are some of the results.
A follow on from the previous post showing how well the Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 85mm 1.8D work together when shooting “Street”. In the last post I converted all the images to Black & White. In this post there is a mixture of Colour and Black & White, and also desaturated images to show, as I […]
It was the first true sunny day at The Bay in Cardiff. The sun was uninterrupted, but there was a chill in the breeze. I selected these shots as I feel they show how well the Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 85mm 1.8D work together when shooting “Street”. This was the same shoot as the post […]

Walking through Cardiff Centre yesterday I saw girls outside playing with bubbles to help promote their shop “LUSH”. They were thoroughly enjoying themselves, and I took the opportunity to get some shots of them attempting to burst the bubbles. All the shots were taken with my Nikon D7000 & Nikkor 85mm 1.8D.
The Senedd is a building on the waterfront of Cardiff Bay where the Welsh Parliament sit, argue and bicker. The following shots show harmony, enjoyment, pleasure, love and contentment on the steps outside. A total contrast to the inside. All the shots were taken with my […]
I went walkabout with the camera in the centre of Cardiff. Apart from the Rugby International I haven’t been into Cardiff on a Saturday for many years, and the first time with the Nikon. It was really vibrant, with so many people, and great photographic opportunities for Street Portraiture. Join me on my walkabout and […]
I took a trip to the Albany Road area of Cardiff. I wanted to have a try at a different project, shooting from one place. I chose the wall outside the church on Albany Road at the junction with Wellfield Road. Well it used to be a church, but is now a discount store, similar […]
I know a lot of photographers don’t like shots taken from behind, and especially of peoples backs. However if you enjoy doing it don’t worry about them, just do it. When I thought of writing this post, I thought I would have just enough shots taken from behind to put in. When I looked through […]
