framing suggestion:
This photograph is a few years old now, so I admit that the London skyline may have
changed a bit since I took it in the early 2000s, but it's still a favourite of London at night,
taken from Waterloo Bridge after a very pleasant walk along the South embankment (I think
it's actually called the Queen Elizabeth Walk) to Waterloo Bridge and the 159 bus home. It
was practically the first picture I took with a new Olympus E-30 and a 10-60mm F/2.8 Zuiko
lens, and being relatively unfamiliar with the camera, I left everything on auto. Having been a
film and video lighting-cameraman for many years, I was very practiced at hand-holding (I
once had to hand-hold a heavy broadcast camera for four hours to relay a live operation to a
clinical audience elsewhere in the hospital. The backache and muscle cramps were only
temporarily relieved by changing the shot occasionally to shoot the surgeons and theatre
nurses). So this night shot was hand-held as well; in fact on very few of the photographs on
this site have I actually employed a tripod - they slow you down and get in the way, and too
often commit you to a viewpoint which later turns out to be unsatisfactory.
