What exactly do we mean when we refer to ‘staging the shot’? There are probably as many definitions as there are folk prepared to offer a definition.

But to us, it means creating a shot that looks its very best. Seldom does a scene look at its very best at first take. It may be because furniture is squeezed closely together, or refuse bins are visible in a garden shot or a warming fire is not lit, or the room looks cold and uninviting because the light are off.

If there’s ever a ‘best time’ to photograph a newly built property, then surely that time is at handover. The time when the contractors have handed the building over to the clients, all the workers are off-site and the time the clients are busy making everything clean, ready and welcoming for the new occupants.

Energy company seeks magazine cover

Inver Energy, a leading supplier of fuel and energy in both the UK and Ireland, asked Business Image in to photograph one of their tanker lorries in an appropriate setting.

Inver Magazine Cover174The tanker had recently won an award and was to take pride of place on the cover of ‘Fuel Oil News’ in the February 2016 edition.

After agreement from the Cardiff Harbour Authority, the shoot was set up at two locations with a number of photographs being taken to offer the client more choice. The location seen below provided a perfect background. The end result was one tanker lorry set a against a dark, brooding sky which set the scene very effectively.

Inver have now asked us to carry out more photography for them, including the Cardiff office based team and a refueling of a berthed cargo vessel from an Inver tanker lorry.

We can advise on the best setting for a great magazine cover shot – it’s one of our specialities

Fewer things can look more off-putting to a client than ‘wonky’ uprights in a shot of a room or a building. Wonky uprights can be the edge of a building, the doors, the windows, any upright that clearly isn’t upright. Continue reading…
