Using my iPhone in Berlin

I’m one of those photographers who is increasingly turning to my iPhone to catch those quick pictures. Instagram has revolutionised phone photography and I love the simplistic nature of using a phone instead of a DSLR. It’s just so easy to use and my shoulders don’t ache after carrying around all of that heavy equipment.

It’ll be interesting to see how this develops and I’m sure all camera manufacturers are exploring smaller capture devices. I’ve spoken to my bosses on a regular basis and keep mentioning the portability, ease of use and multi functioning features that I enjoy.

Great pictures can be taken with all cameras including phones and here are a selection of images I took on a recent trip to the fabulous city of Berlin.

Architecture in Edinburgh, Scotland

I recently spent a few days up in Edinburgh, Scotland and was amazed at some of the wonderful architecture. I particularly liked the combination of old and modern but was really impressed with the modern architecture. My favourite piece of modern architecture was the new Scottish Parliament building in Holyrood, which was designed by the Catalan Enric Miralles, who unfortunately died before its completion. Here are some of my images from this photogenic building.

The other building that I liked was a combination of old & modern architecture used at Usher Hall in the city centre. Here are a couple of my images.

Here are some more images of this beautiful city.

It really was a marvellous short break and this wonderful city is well worth a visit.

Architectural Photography

One of my favourite genres within photography is Architectural work. I’ve dabbled a bit and have always found it challenging but rewarding. New buildings are popping up all the time, some of them are highly designed, colourful and asking to be photographed. I’m always looking out for interesting architectural photography and recently came across the work of Michael Wolf. His images are amazing and I thought I’d showcase a few here. The buildings he photographs are not modern but the size of the buildings are incredible and I love the graphic, symmetrical quality of these images.

The Third & The Seventh by Alex Roman.

I came across this video today and thought I’d share it with you. Like most photographers I’ve got a real passion for the moving image.
The film The Third & The Seventh by Alex Roman is on vimeo and is exceptional with truly wonderful imagery. The architecture is amazing. Play it widescreen, sit back and enjoy.
