Seeing your own photography work in use
Part of the enjoyment of pro photography is seeing your work in use
An ‘I took that’ moment
Oh, that’s my photo…
Even though I know that my commercial work gets used all over the place in brochures and web sites, it’s still great to unexpectedly come across a photo in use, and be able to say ‘I took that‘.
The other day, I was heading down to London to do some photography teaching for a company, and decided to go by train.
It’s been a while since I left the city from Leicester railway station…
There, between the tracks is a poster welcoming people to the city
Yes – it’s one of mine :-)
The photo above is from my iPhone – a camera I still use somewhat reluctantly.
The image of Curve on the poster is cropped from one created when it was being built – here’s the full version.
It’s a stitched panoramic view taken with a TS-E 24mm shift lens. I used a step ladder, to see over the fence and get my camera level at the same height as that of the bottom line of the curtain wall structure.
Here’s a finished view that’s also been used for quite a few promotional items.
And here’s the blue tower block that you can see in the background at the station.
Yes, I know it’s what I do for a living, but it’s still nice to see your photos in use :-)
