At the end of the day.

With the days being much longer now, it meant there was no point in setting up to shoot the IVY restaurant here…

.. until much later on, as they were wanting to show how this room looked at night – which does come with it’s own problems, as it means working around their guests, who are coming in for something nice to eat that evening.

So it was a case of finding my spot and setting-up early…

.. while the team started to work on each of the tables…

.. and put up the lights.

So 10 minutes later I was pressing the button…

.. as that was basically it…

.. expect for some people – as we naturally didn’t want this restaurant to look like it was on the Mary Celeste wink

So we started playing around on where their possible positions would be…

.. before the models arrived…

.. as Dianne worked on the all important table closest to the camera.

Anyway, once everyone had arrived, it was time to do a few more test shots…

.. as the sun began to drop and night time approached – which 10 minutes it started to do – and so it was time to shoot the people for real…

.. after which some last minute changes were once again made to the table in the foreground…

.. as the table cloth was not to our liking – and then it was a case of waiting for that twilight moment…

.. to capture the final frame.

And so this was the end result…

.. after it had all been pieced together – which can sometimes take longer to do than the actual shoot itself, but then that is often all part of creating of an image these days – especially one that you are hoping others will then want to use a lot over the next few years… which is naturally our goal at the end of the day smile
