This is the first picture in my 2017 Lightroom Collection. Not sure why it is the first picture as it was taken in July but no matter I will carry on with the story of this picture.
Basically the problem was this. I was photographing the paving at a new leisure centre for the supplier of tha paving you can see made by Tobermore.
I needed people in the shot. But there weren’t any people around.
Not for this view which I needed.
So I set the self-timer on my Canon 6D to 10 seconds and included myself in this shot. I know – unpaid modelling. Not that anyone would pay me to model for them.
The point of this post is this – when you are working as a commercial photographer you have to be able to adapt to the situation and get the client the shots they want.
When I am doing repeat work for Tobermore I wear different clothes so I do not always look the same.
