Those are amazing. I've just taken up photography as a hobby. Zero experience. Bought a Nikon D3400 and kit lens. Currently watching every YouTube video under the sun. I've been thinking about going to Bank station on a Friday evening when it's like a ghost town, but I don't really know what I'm doing. Seeing photos like that is a great motivator for me to keep learning, so thanks!

 

Anyway, here's my favourite picture I've taken so far. It took me aaaaaages to figure out how to get it how I wanted it in Lightroom.

Digbeth, Birmingham. Went back to the work in progress (above) to see it completed.

Was just dicking around here but kinda liked the shot.  Its the Undercroft on the South Bank, took at about 10pm, handheld through a 200m lens in jpeg. Really impressed with how the camera handled it.

Same lens, albeit on a tripod, a couple of miles away at 7:30am. jpeg again.  Not sure what the deal with all the scaffolding is, but this is pretty much where the Westway ends at Paddington.  I just liked how obvious it is which way the city centre is.

More jpeg. Helios 44-2 lens, it's an old Soviet lens which always seems to be dead cheap on eBay. Mad bokeh at f2, this was stepped down to f11 (I think) in really harsh midday sun. I just like that this street still has cobbles, it's just round the corner from Edgware Road tube, probably a quarter of a mile from the Westway photo.

Alleyway off of Portobello Road, the day after the carnival.

Kensington Gardens.  Took longer than I am willing to admit to get a shot with nobody in it.  My son was with me and I think I was pissing him off. :lol:

Some restaurant window back in Birmingham.  Kinda liked all the stuff hiding in the shadows.

Thanks man. I think that's the kind of vibe I like. I have this constant confidence crisis though that it looks how I want but it's full of a load of technical mistakes, lolz. But fuck it. I'm really enjoying it, and learning every day, and trying to stop myself rushing into buying a new lens etc!

 

One thing I'm having a problem with though... I'll shoot in raw. Get it how I want it in Lightroom. Export it to jpg. It looks different, but ok. I'll upload it to Google Drive. Then download it from there on my phone to put on Instagram. And it looks different again. Is that normal, or am I doing stuff wrong? 

 

Cheers
