For some time now I’ve been a member of She Clicks – a group for female photographers on Facebook. From time to time group members organise meet ups around the country and today I was lucky enough to join one in London, led by Angela Nicholson.
We met at the WEX Photographic store this morning and took a leisurely stroll up Brick Lane. Some of the group tried out some ProFoto flashes en-route, but I preferred to do some natural light street photography. It took a while to find my rhythm, but gradually I found some interesting characters to photograph, sometimes in combination with the amazing street art in nearby roads.
Eventually we reached Shoreditch where I spent some time experimenting with silhouettes and the differing light levels in the tunnel which leads through to Spitalfields. I normally go for a monochrome treatment with my street photography, but today colour felt right, especially when many of the colours around this part of London are so vivid.
