One of the biggest things that has come out of blogging for me is my love for photography.
It is something I know very little about and for a long time I have been meaning to gain some knowledge on how to make the most of my camera and take a better picture.
With this in mind I was very excited to have the opportunity to join in with Maplin Photo Walk in Covent Garden the other day lead by the very talented Kaye Ford.
We followed a route starting in the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden trying to capture the crowds, street performers and the whole ambiance of the buzzing area.
Street photography is something that always scares me and I find it hard to try and incorporate other people into my shots whilst making them interesting.
I took on board some great tips from Kaye and headed into the crowds to try and capture some of the life.
I found it pretty daunting to snap the public but armed with an empty memory card and plenty of enthusiasm my confidence grew and it wasn’t long before the images were racking up.
This is the beauty of the technology we all have access to in this day and age. There is no limit to the amount of images we can take and store.
From Covent Garden we moved onto the vibrant colours of Neals Yard and the uniqueness of Soho.
My love of colour was feed throughout the whole walk and then it was time to feed my belly at the beautiful Brigit’s Bakery.
Cakes galore I indulged my sweet tooth and had a cheeky prosseco while talking over our day.
I came away with a bigger thirst to learn and happy that I had uncovered parts of Lonon that I had never seen before.
