Spinning

Last night I went on a quick photowalk with Think James Photo and Dfacer after work. It took us a while to get into our groove as none of us seemed to find anything inspiring to shoot during the first 20 minutes or so of the walk.

Hitting the Thames did the trick, and the usual spots along the Southbank seemed to spark the creative juices a little.

James managed to find an installation of some sort (it’s probably art) in front of St Paul’s Cathedral, one of which was a metal disc which spun around in place. After attempting a few shots of placing my camera on the disk and spinning it during the exposure, failing to capture myself in the shot due to ghosting, I had the rather brilliant idea of actually sitting on the disc myself to capture myself without the movement, and the lights spinning around me.

Voila, the above shot was born.

It’s a flat metal disc, a bit like a large manhole cover, that rotates. I sat myself and the camera on it and took an exposure while it was spinning around.
