Composition is King. Always.

The image above, the Price Waterhouse Cooper building in London, is not new. I captured it last year and processed it immediately on my return from the shoot.

I have to admit to being quite fickle with the end results of my images. They’re never quite right – oh the exposure is fine and so is the composition – it’s the ‘wash’ I’m talking about.

Since shooting with Leica’s Monochrom, I think I’ve been spoiled with a great B&W from the outset. And so, with a few tweaks in Photoshop, the result is a brilliant monochrome image. All my old images are lack lustre now!

So there’s the message for the day people. You get one chance, on location, for composition and exposure. Get that correct and you will not be penalised for later re working of the post process.

Have a great weekend all
