Week 6: Trafalgar shadows

Posted on Categories 52

I’m a whole day late with this week’s image, but I like to think I’ve got a good excuse. Well, not good maybe, but at least it’s a photographic one :-)
Since Friday night, there’s a photography lighting course going on at http://creativelive.com/live with Zack Arias as the teacher. He’s doing this like 10 hours a day, and I don’t wanna miss anything! Lucky for me, each day is repeated at un-American hours, which happens to be my day time. It’s still 10 hours a day though! Plus they’re cutting out the lunch breaks on the repeats, so .. no breaks! I’ve only missed an hour or two now, as we were watching Doctor Who last night and I didn’t want to wake up at 5am to catch them on the repeat. Even though I’m not (yet) into studio lighting, I learned a lot about light and direction and all kinds of handy stuff, so yes, in about 3 hours I’ll be at the screen again, for day 3 of the course.

Anyway. This photo was taken on my trip to England recently, and what you see here are the stairs next to the fourth plinth on Trafalgar Square. I also took photos of the big ship-in-a-bottle that’s currently on top of that fourth plinth, of which I hope to post one later.
