BLOG 2020


Editorial photography covers a multitude of subjects, the majority for me is automotive and portraiture for national magazines. Just over a month ago I covered a series of portraits of Which? reader Dawn Day which was related to an online scam, this linked in with the February issues Computing special and due to deadlines had to be covered in a short space of time as magazines work 6-8 weeks in advance.

The photo shoot took place at Dawn's house and with a mix of portrait and landscape photos taken to give the design team at the magazine scope to place text and captions around the portrait. Lighting was simple with a Profoto A1 small hand held light on a stand camera left and using the natural light from the window to the right to balance the lighting.
