A nice photograph of Leadenhall Market

Thanks. Funnily enough my first walk through I completely ignored it. Then on a second pass I decided to give it a go. As I was taking it (I used a 10 stop ND) 2 other photogs turned up. Turns out Leadenhall market is a great place to meet photogs on a sunday!

I shot it on a SUnday last year, so very few people about. I also used a 10 Stop so the small number of people that were, would have disappeared :-)

Behind The Lens

Location
London, at Leadenhall Market
Time
About Midday.
Lighting
Remember you need to balance the ambient lighting coming in through the glass with the lights from the shops.
Equipment
Canon 6D, tripod, 24-70 F/4, no flash, 10stop ND filter, CPL
Inspiration
I was just wandering the city of London on a Sunday. Everything is pretty much closed and there are very few people about so it’s the best time to get day time photos if you don’t want people.
Editing
Just your normal shadows and highlights balancing, setting the white balance and then split toning the shadows and highlights.
In my camera bag
I always have my 24-70, 70-200 in my bag along with my 6D. Usually I’ll bring my polariser and a set of GNDs and NDs.
Feedback
Go on a Sunday when nothing is open. There are fewer people so they won’t ruin the shot. Use a 10stop ND filter to really get rid of the last few tourists.
