York Minster By Twilight, York

On a recent work-related visit to York, I took the opportunity to wander around the York Minster before heading to the train station. I am always awed by the sheer, imposing size of the building once you are up close to it. Crammed right into the middle of the city, hemmed in on all sides, its often a nightmare to represent that ‘mass’ in an image. I was pleased with this view, because it allowed me to do just that, with a wide angle (16 mm) field of view, and still have room to deal with the distortion that a low viewpoint and wide angle bring.

I hope you like it. Have a great week.

Hello. I am Phil Songa. Photography is something I have always found joy in. I love the ability to capture a thing, a place, a time, an expression. I love the colour. I love the mood. I love the process of taking a photo. I love the process of going out to take a photo. I love to look at photos. In short, when it comes to photos I am sold. I am self-taught which, they say, is the best way to learn. Experimenting and trying out new things is all part of the process of enjoyment. And I aim to convey that joy to you too. I photograph a variety of subjects and enjoy both contemporary and traditional looks. People, music and things are my favourite subjects, and so I apply my skills to a range of areas including weddings, portraits and product photography. In my personal projects, I am currently re-discovering the joys of black and white representation, using HDR techniques and long exposure photography. I also enjoy jazz and African music, reading, writing and travelling. One day I would love to go round the world with just my camera - and some cash to spend! Thank you for visiting. Come back soon.
