Ta Phil. Available light, (Cynic friend used to say, if you have a flashgun, it's available)! As you can see from the exterior shot, lovely day, and all available!! lights were switched on. Was for a book illustration, but a misunderstanding between the Author, in Australia, and his local contact, were not wanted, specific interiors, pertinent to the Sculptor, a local man, was the brief. Impressed with the book, was a labour of love, doubt it made money, author was related to the sculptor. I did not charge for all the pics ,taken over a month or so, in and around the area, got a very honourable mention in the book though. Cheers. Ed.
I took a great number of photographs of buildings for my book, just a few years ago. In fact it was the need to take the photos that started me off with photography. I found it very difficult. More so than I imagined it would be. Main problem, which none of images posted here have had, was that often I would travel up to London for the day to visit particular buildings and find that they had waste skips, cars, vans, etc parked outside or the Council had dug up the road and the scene was full of traffic cones and barriers. Many times it was impossible to get far enough away from the building to get a full shot or there was a lamp post bang straight in front of the sculpture I wanted to detail. I learnt a lot about cloning in PS though.
