Regular readers will know how I try and carry a DSLR whenever possible- mainly because you never know what opportunities you may stumble across.
Here's a perfect example - walking out of Piccadilly Circus underground station when a horse and carriage pulled up in front of me. Even better, it was full of models in period costume!
Rather than the splendid horse and carriage, the opportunity to grab an unusual portrait really appealed to me.
I was carrying my lightest combination (Nikon D7000 and Nikkon 35mm f1.8 lens) the greatest advantage of which is it's flexibility- it allows me to shoot cityscapes, architecture, street shots and as here, portraits.
This camera/lens combination really is great for natural light work and I would recommend it highly as a flexible setup.
Given the white tones of the models' outfits, I knew this could make a striking black and white image.
Have a great weekend, Mo
