Street Photography in Krakow

So I've decided, I don't do holiday photography very well. It's not something I'm tuned in to. I've been driving my wife mad with shooting, editing and posting the street photography on Facebook. The Jewish quarter was incredible to see and the Oskar Schindler factory was a 40 minute hike from town. Amazing experience, one... Continue Reading →

Photo booth, Portraits

I'm not much of an event photographer, as the shots I take are high colour or monochrome. Wedding photography would be a nightmare for me. I found it strange having the interaction before shooting. It's not a knew thing and I'm not shy in any way at all. But it's not my comfort zone being... Continue Reading →

Early morning and long exposures

So I've been up since 3pm and out the door taking shots over the back field. I was waiting for the sunrise but the clouds and rain got in the way eventually. Retreating to the cover of the woods I started again. Taken from Morley, Leeds. ©Lucas Thompson-Murphy

To be honest, after a few days most people are just ticking boxes. Seen the Pantheon and St Peters Square, tick. I may have done the same with four days to navigate... Continue Reading →

Benidorm, Spain

The perfect sunset in Benidorm, Spain. Well, many may snuff at the idea of going to Benidorm because of the reputation it holds for the drunk and uncouth. You could also meet the locals, that are fed up with the week long tourist creating havoc. But if you are lucky enough, you may see the... Continue Reading →

Days like these

So I've had my first day back at work. Reading through email, sorting my things to do. Jumping in meetings and eating all my lunch before 10am. The madness of the first day back, reminds me of the contrast of the photograph. It was an amazing scene. Taken from Reighton Sands, Yorkshire. ©Lucas Thompson-Murphy
