Britsoc Photo Lesson #8 – When your subject is just enough

Technical details; Nikon D700. AF-S Nikkor 17-35mm, f/3.2, ISO 1250 @ 1/20s

On a job for a corporate client in Rotterdam just before Christmas we visited the now famous Markthal. With a subject like this you may think it impossible to get a bad shot. You’d be wrong.

It was my first time visiting so it took me a while to realise that there are some stalls which have eating areas which you access via the establishment in question’s private stairway. Only when you are sitting in one of those areas can you take a really nice photo of the Markthal roof. And then the subject is just enough. Get the angle right and let the wonders of digital enhancement – this is brightened up and the vibrancy increased a bit (but ONLY a bit!) – do the rest to create an arresting image.

If you are holding an event of any kind in 2015 in the Netherlands or the UK, please do get in touch.
