SPOTLIGHT: London Life and Freedom 55 in Downtown London

If you followed the Don Smith Commercial Building Awards, London Life was a nominee for the Legacy Award. (I can’t believe I forgot to post results. Next post!) The building is a beauty and iconic in downtown London. With the need to capture London life and Freedom 55, I got to explore with intention and try to create images that showcase its prominence downtown. Spoiler alert. London Life won the Legacy Award for the Private Sector. This means the building was …

How’s Budweiser Gardens Looking These Days?

Budweiser Gardens sit’s downtown, London and brings all kinds of entertainment to this great city. But, how’s it looking these days?

Today, I’ll discuss the challenge of going out and photographing the exterior of the London Public Library, Central Library Branch. In architectural photography, every location has some sort of challenge to overcome. This challenge is why architecture photographers love the ability to check out the building or space before the day of the official shoot. To check out the location prior to the shoot is scouting.

Snapshot blown out and potentially useless?

Talbot Streetscape Photo Brought Back From the Dead

Hey! You’ve got to check out this streetscape photo I shot on Monday mid-afternoon. Normally, this is no big deal. Normally, this original photo would not get any attention from me and sit dead in my archives.  Rightfully so, this photo came at complete random. See here is what happened: My newish Sony A7riii was suddenly delaying the shutter release. It was like there was a 2-second timer before the camera would fire. Not a huge deal, but I didn’t …
