Part 1: The Concept Behind The Photograph
The idea is to combine and contrast the iconic Tower Bridge with London’s tallest, modern glass building, ‘The Shard’; the tall glass building behind Tower Bridge with the sun’s reflection. Ultimately, the story is about light. Contrasting a dark, warm, and moody, Victorian age Tower Bridge, against The Shard’s modern bright white, coldness, and glassy feel. I see Tower Bridge being side-lit by rich, warm, golden ‘Rembrandt’ light against a dark and moody sky. The Shard standing alone like a modern glass beacon. The picture requires human content in the foreground, but this will have to be resolved later; there was none on the day. The photograph above is a quick visual of the composition.
