Greenwich

I've been focusing a lot recently on learning more about studio photography and specifically shooting with coloured gels. This weekend I took a weekend off studio photography to watch the royal wedding and visit Greenwich.

I've always loved visiting greenwich, its a great place with tonnes of history, quite nice bars, restaurants, museums and the amazing view from the hill.

From a photography stand point theres the Cutty Sark, The Queens House, the Maritime museum, the foot tunnel and the Observatory. All great places to shoot. Today I visited two of the locations Ive never visited before. The Cutty Sark and the Queens house. I went armed with my 12-24 f4 as its was inevitable that I would be shooting wide angle and I also had the new grip attached to the a7riii. I must say I really like the grip and can't really see it coming off the camera any time soon.

 One of the most photographed stair cases in London, Queens houses famous tulip staircase. Its actually much less grand in person, the idea angle gives it more gravity. I was there on a relatively quiet day and there was a queue to take a shot of it.  12-24 f4 at 13mm, f4, 1/20 iso 100

 Cutty Sark, this is a fantastic museum in Greenwich. The Cutty Sark was an extremely fast and advanced merchant ship back in its day. What surprise me was the shear scale of it. The size of its cargo bays and the very small crew quarters. Personally I think the best shots of this are either underneath it, or on the deck at the front at night with a longer lens to take advantage of the lens compression and pull the city in closer when its all lit up.  12-24 f4 at 12mm, f10, 1/640 iso 100
