Of Interest To Photographers

My friend Antony sent me a link to a short (16 minute) film on You Tube.

Two photographers travel to London to experience the city when it is almost deserted during lockdown.

They video themselves, and explain the ideas and the process, also the camera settings and equipment used.

Some of the resulting stills are shown alongside the original video footage.

For me, it was fascinating to see this area of Central London almost empty of people. Soho, Seven Dials, and Covent Garden, places where I worked and walked every day for the last twelve years I spent in that city. Even if you have no interest in cameras or photography, you might enjoy seeing the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on the capital city of England.

(There are some short advertisements dring the video, but they can be skipped.)

  1. A great vidclip, and of great interest to me. Honestly most city travelling by me was ending up in visiting museums, theatres and food destinations. 😉 I always had lost the time enjoy itself. Maybe a very good tipp, making a photo tour, which forces to have a closer look to the city itself. Michael

    1. No, I don’t. My friend Antony is a keen photographer, and still lives in London. He sent me the link.
      Those empty streets are really strange, Maggie. When I think how busy that area was when I lived and worked there, the contrast during lockdown is remarkable.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I haven’t been back to that area in nine years, so I was staggered to see so few people there, Robbie. I used to have to walk in the road because the pavements were so crowded. On the plus side, it does show that most are abiding by the regulations.
      Best wishes, Pete.
