Acres of glass
Hammersmith, my corner of west London, has more than its fair share of modern office blocks, filling the spaces damaged during the war – sometimes with a lot of over-zealous urban planning.
But this was more of a photographic exercise. In stable summer daytime conditions, I took my tripod and shot three different exposures for each picture to eliminate any handshake. I merged them together to create some richer, denser images with greater tone than usual.
They didn’t come out with that very saturated feel of HDR, but seem to have more impact, partly thanks to the summer skies and bright light I was blessed with.
This set also contains two photographs of Hammersmith’s main church, St Paul’s, to show it’s not all acres of contemporary glass facades in this part of town.
