The Woman on the Train

“I took this photo on the train coming back from London. The low light of the car offered a beautiful reflection of my wife’s face on the window, all accentuated by the black/green contrast and the speed of the train.”

The best way to learn photography is through hands-on practice!

If you are new to photography, make sure to check out our range of photography courses in London.

Our best and most comprehensive course for beginners is Intensive One Day Photography Course. 

To learn more about portrait photography, please make sure to check out our Portrait Photography and Studio Lighting course . If you are already familiar with studio lights, I highly recommend our follow-up workshop called Creative Studio Photography – Flash.

And for those of you interested in taking portraits in natural light or with the help of a speedlight/on-camera flash, we have a Street Portrait Photography workshop.

And if you are keen to learn some creative techniques, make sure you visit my recent posts: Best Examples of Silhouette Photography and 10 Tips for Black and White Silhouette Photography.
