I often find that keeping a photo simple is sometimes the key to a successful image. I’m not saying that this photo is outstanding by any means, but it is an image which is usable in many ways. I shot it a few days ago whilst on a job for a good commercial client who is in the shipping/marine industry. Seemed simple at the time but the use of a long lens and a little tweak in Lightroom made my client over the moon. I didn’t realise it and they didn’t tell me they were desperate for an image for the wraparound cover of their annual report. This was their saviour!
Amazing how things just fall into place sometimes
A bevy of power-tools and a dozen beers with my mate Ian Hitchcock (pictured) from Getty Images and we knocked up this state-of-the-art photographers table. Laptops protected, power available, plenty of comfort – and all we have to do now is sell advertising space on the front (although I think the NRL might complain!)
Just stumbled upon a set of truly fantastic photos by UK snapper Mike Stimpson. You can find the full set at this link but make sure you also check out the photo notes for info on how Mike shot the pics. Enjoy!
In early December last year I was sitting at my desk when my wife Kaya said “That’s funny, a car with a Google sticker and a weird contraption on the roof just drove past”. Being a news man and a geek I tore out the door and chased the car down the street and around a few corners and found it doing laps of our neighbourhood, its first outing in Australia. The guy was kind enough to stop after I had done a few pics and I did a few detail pics of the interior of the car. (I posted this on my blog at the time – http://blog.cameronlaird.com/2007/12/google-maps-zip-through-little-old.htm
It has been well reported in the past week that Google has now released this street view detail in Australia (http://maps.google.com) and I didn’t think twice until a colleague remembered my pics of the Google car that were published locally and in metropolitan newspapers throughout the country. He called me up and asked for the address where it was shot. Sure enough – there I am! Not only in one place but two separate places!
