Brief Guide to Taking Photos in London


Best Times of the Day for London Photography

Overcast weather, fog, and shadows can make capturing a good shot a bit more of a challenge in some locations. As a general rule, sunset and sunrise offer the best light for photography. A good example is Primrose Hill, which offers a beautiful view of the city below.

These times of the day or evening reveal the best colors of London. Ludgate Hill is another such vantage point; it overlooks St. Paul’s Cathedral, and it is a highly recommended photography vantage point. This London location at sunset allows for capture of the cathedral without difficulty of exposure against a too-bright sky.
