So, after many weeks of trying to find a date we could both make, I managed to get into Leeds with my cousin Simon (read his blog here: http://www.simonjbrady.com) to take some photos. This time I had a change of camera, I borrowed a DSLR to see how I got on with it, with a viewing to eventually buying one. Here’s how I got on with the challenges that were set by our loyal fans!
People in Hats
I didn’t think the hat was too obvious in this one, so I thought I’d make it a bit more obvious! I also like the way the red stands out.
As well as being the first time I’d used a DSLR to take photos, it was my first time using a long exposure, thankfully Simon was around to give me a helping hand and a few tips!
Looking upwards at buildings
This is the Leeds Met Uni Rose Bowl, it caught my eye because of its shape and colour!
I’ll be honest, this isn’t one of my favourite photos, but all the same I like the bubbles captured in the fountain.
Wildlife in the city
A pigeon caught flying between buildings.
So there you go, my challenge posts. See Simons at http://www.simonjbrady.com/2014/03/17/leeds-the-challenges/
As always let us know about what you think of our photos. Stay tuned for more Leeds photos!
