My interest in London station photography began when I saw the view from the new (then) balcony installed at Waterloo’s Train Station. From high up it is possible to see everything much clearer and close-up especially the giant Victorian station clock. Starting by simply resting the camera on the banister it was possible to take a series of long-exposure, time-lapse shots making the people blurred.
The next visit to Waterloo I took a tripod and requested permission to take photographs from the station. For these shots I waited for an interesting combination of people in the shot. This was alright for individual shots but I also wanted to layer all the images together to create a time-lapse.
Four stations later, for the most recent shots at London Paddington Station, I took sets of 9x shots with one or two seconds between each, a new facility my Nikon D850 has. Later, in post-production I could add each set of images into a series of stacks. From these I then chose which I wanted to convert into a time-lapse video to put onto Instagram. The best shots have been added to my library of shots on Alamy. See more location photography.
