AbilityWith over 20 years in professional photography, chances are we’ll have seen a similar problem before and will know how to solve it!TechnologyAs you can see, we travel with quite a bit of gear - and this is on light equipment day....Experience ...but even with the best gear in the world, the pictures would be nothing without the experience to know how to light things and what looks good.
Principal photographer Steve Dunning has been shooting professionally since 1988. In the early years this meant shooting more industrial interiors than he cares to remember, but it was brilliant training in lighting- if you can make an engineering factory look good you can make anywhere look great! So there were many years learning about lighting on location in difficult situations. Then the fact that it was all shot on film meant that attention to detail was key - no “oh we’ll fix it in post production” - not when scans cost £50 a time and a “powerful computer” had 64mb of ram. These days shooting roomsets and interiors on digital to 60Mb files is a doddle by comparison, and it means he can get on with what he loves best - bringing great lighting to beautiful rooms. Now the standing around waiting is usually waiting for the goldfish to swim into the right position!
