No matter how many shoots I do I always feel a little bit of an edge or nerves just beforehand, I can never be sure how much time I will have, what the location/background will be, how cooperative the subject will be, or if a news shoot, how may other photographers (and hence how much input to the shoot).
I was warned upfront that todays shoot would probably be quite quick but in the end it all worked rather well with Stephen being very helpful. First was a nice neutral shot against a nice flint wall.
Its quite important with news items not only to get the subject but also to put them into context if possible. By switching location by 20 metres we were able to add a Brighton context to the shot.
Also, having Chancellor Sanjeev Bhaskar with Stephen helped us get nice relaxed shots. Finally I was took a more informal shot as Stephen entered the dome.
Overall it was a nice quick shoot with a nice set of results.
