Whitechapel Street photography with Pablo ,

We will cover a few of the underground station boundaries in this area and certainly include the famous Whitechapel area. East London is so cool and there is always the challenge to try and capture that mix.

 

The city

There’s more to the City than suits and grey buildings. You’ll be seeking out shots of faded and unusual signage, historic buildings, London in development including Western Europe’s tallest building, numerous hidden views of St Pauls from small winding side streets and touch on the groovy East End of London. If bold enough you might want to go up Monument and grasp panoramic views of London. Or capture landscape views from the wobbly bridge and relax in the open space just outside St Pauls to end the day.

southbank

Take in some of the buzz surrounding this popular area of theatre goers, buskers, and commuters making the journey across the Thames home. There’s award winning architecture, skateboarding, magnificent views of the City and Parliament from Hungerford Bridge and people, lots of people relaxing. So bring out your dark side with the help of a monopod or tripod, and we’ll get you mastering aperture control, the fun way.

It’s massive! Views of ancient, decaying trees, long, wild grass hiding the spoils of last Sundays day out, narrow winding roads, a museums of Windmills and further secrets in  the  deep foliage to come (I can promise an enchanting, abandoned pond in plain site by a main road). This meet up takes place on
