Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken a few minutes walk from London Bridge and The Shard. Which you can see in the background. It's a very photogenic, urban part of London.
Time
Taken early evening, while I was waiting for my girlfriend to meet me. I got bored waiting, and it was too cold to stand around, so I decided to go for a quick wander. I always have my camera on me, which gives me endless opportunities to shoot.
Lighting
The great thing about shooting at night is the lighting from the street, shops and businesses create some fantastic scenes. Often you'll find places at night which wouldn't have caught your eye in daylight.
Equipment
I'm a big Fujifilm fan. I currently use the Fujifilm X-T2. On this particular night I was using the 16-55mm XF lens.
Inspiration
The cyclist stopped at a red light, and the scene just made sense to me. This will often happen, seemingly banal street scenes will look incredibly interesting. I knew if I got down low with a wide angle the perspective would be dynamic.
Editing
A little post-processing. Desaturating a few of the colours to reduce any distracting elements, along with increasing the highlights to better define the subject.
In my camera bag
I don't leave the house without my camera bag, which contains my Fujifilm X-T2, 16-55mm XF, 35mm 1.4, along with the usual batteries, SD cards, etc.
Feedback
Think about the angle. Shoot from a perspective other than eye level. This scene isn't particularly interesting at eye level. Lowering the camera to a foot or so from street level made all the difference.
