Last Sunday my nephew asked me whether I would like to take some photos of him and his friend, his words being ‘cool FB shots’ – roughly ranslated, pictures that they can put on facebook! Naturally, I said yes, and we went to Portobello Market area. There are some really cool photo locations there.
Portobello Market is a world famous flea market situated in West London between Notting Hill Gate and the Harrow Road. It is a populart destination for Londoners and tourists alike.
The area is infamous for the Hugh Grant/Julia Roberts film, Notting Hill, which still sees tourists asking where they can find the blue door, and bookshop!
Here are some pictures from the Portobello Road area where I have used a graffiti backdrop and a cul-de-sac.
Lighting was one softbox and a SB80DX triggered by PW Plus 2s. Camera was my D700 and 24-120mm f4 lens (really love this lens)
