Eye motion

I was stood taking images of the London Eye last night, and after several long exposures I realised that the composition I had was pretty much the same as a previous time I was in that spot, unsurprisingly. Sure the light and clouds were different, but the fact the angles were the same was bugging me.

So I left my Canon 5D Mark II on the tripod and pulled out the Sony NEX-7 from my bag and went off to find a better angle.

Lying on the floor I balanced the small Sony on it’s end using a couple of coins from my pocket and my iPhone for stability, and let it go with a 10stop filter for 90 seconds. It took a few attempts to get the leading lines I wanted, sometimes with people deciding to stand in the way, and other times with my poorly constructed makeshift camera table falling down, but I eventually got a shot I was happy with.

Have a great weekend everyone.
