What I Learned from my London Photo Shoot

I just returned from a photo shoot in London with my amazing friend Erica Lindsey. Here are a few tips I learned.

  1. Take  pictures of what you like from different views (close-up, far away,  underneath, inside).
  2. When  taking pictures on Westminster bridge overlooking the River Thames and Big  Ben, watch out for unaware tourists who might “accidentally” knock you  into an oncoming double decker.
  3. If  you visit the skyscraper The Shard to get pictures from above, instead of paying for access to the top floor head to the bar The Gong and pay for a drink instead (and take photos for free). 
  4. If  you are unfamiliar with where you are going-ASK! We missed out on our  third destination, Highgate Cemetery, because we got on the wrong bus. On  the bright side, we are going to take a trip back to London and spend the  entire day at Highgate.
  5. Just  go with it. After realizing Highgate Cemetery closed before we made it  there, Erica and I decided to head back to Big Ben. The pictures taken  under Big Ben during twilight turned out to be my favorite.


For those of you interested in taking pictures of your book cover or business logo at unique and interesting places, I will post about those tips soon. And I will also share with you the awesome pictures of book covers and logos Erica took.
