There are more than 100 different ways to shoot any subject…

.. so here are just a few, which we produced of these beautiful Hammam beach / bath & hand towels, over the past few months down at the beach…

.. as each image tells a different story – all be it of the exact same thing.

So when someone says, can you take a picture of ‘my thing’ and how much will that cost, you can see why I would then usually start to ask them questions, as it’s not just as simple as saying “oh that will be Β£…”.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so what words would you like me to say – or more importantly, what words do you need me to say when I’m telling this story using my camera and lights?

Will one picture do or do we need to take a few different pictures to complete the story – and so then comes the questions about the use, and what all are you planning on using the images for: in which media, for how long and where in the world or who in the world are we writing to here ??

Lots of questions, because as you can see from this example, there are more than 100 different ways to shoot any subject… even one as simple as a towel.

Anyway, that’s my thoughts for today, which I thought I’d share with you – as well as letting you see some recent examples of what we have been up to.
