A new year brings new opportunities and challenges and the possibilities in photography are endless. I was recently asked if I had an image of the CS Lewis sculpture located in East Belfast, the well known author and Christian apologist and of course an Ulsterman! I replied that I hadn’t but that I always intended to photograph it but have never got around to so. I made my first visit on Christmas Eve, I returned on Christmas Day and then yet again on Boxing Day.
You would be forgiven for asking why so many visits? Each time I returned the light was different which changed the image. I kept finding new angles to shoot from and using different lenses also changed the image I saw through the viewfinder. This is the standard approach taken by any editorial photographer, cover all angles and points of view and you will get the image that the client wants.
