    Some very good shots there. It has left me wondering though how much do you play about with the photos in photoshop to add the sort of dark and dingey affects or is alot of it down to the original image? I don't know anything about photography you see and would love to produce something like that

    Well, in essense, everything is down to the original image. You can only work on what is already there. Don't get me wrong, the pictures look vastly different from what they do in the camera, but the interplay between light and shadow is what allows you to work on a picture so heavily.

    But to answer the question of how much I play about with them, I would say a lot. But, the changes are quite subtle, and each change builds upon an element of the picture that already exists.

    Essentially, I just change shit in photoshop until it looks good. Sometimes it takes ten minutes, sometimes it takes an hour. If it's paid work, it might take me three days.

    Didn't notice this before, sorry, wasn't ignoring the question.

    I own a few cameras, but I always use the same two when in West Park. I use a Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-70L lens, and a Canon 50D with a 10-22 lens.

    Went back today and grabbed a few shots. Nothing to write home about, but this was my favourite one of the day:

    couple more shots from today. Going to post them as I process rather than just as one big update.
