I was finally able to return to the streets of Brighton for photography in April 2021. Once again the whole of the UK went into Covid-19 lockdown from January to March and I stayed at home on the outskirts of Brighton for the duration. Not once did I venture into the city centre during the lockdown.
Getting Into My Stride
After a lockdown enforced hiatus it was a case of getting back into my stride photographically speaking. This time it came flooding back to me almost instantly. Which was very welcome. I certainly found it easier to get going again compared to my Brighton Beach and Seafront project after the initial lockdown of 2020.
It was great to see the city coming back to life whilst observing that folk were still being sensible and largely respecting social distancing. It’s slowly gearing up to be a “normal” year in 2021. I’m sure we’ve all had enough of the preceding 12 months or so!
I’m always fascinated by the “human condition”. It’s a particularly good time to be out and about with a camera just now. Photographing people emerging from lockdown and recording these times for posterity.
Back to the Photography
So, let’s get back to the photography. I’m pretty much settled on using one lens for each street session. But I’ll mix it up by using a different lens for each shoot. So, for this post, you’ll see a mixture of ultra wide angle through to more conventional focal lengths used for these photos during April 2021.
