Photographers Stories 2013 – Paul Graham.

Martyn Hill – no comply.

This was used for a Last Post in the same issue as the previous two photos. Again, we shot a couple of photos on this evening and both were ran, the other as a Heathen advert. Whilst setting up for this trick, a drunk guy approached us and began telling us he was waiting for his kids in the nearby slide you can see in the background and then proceeded to sit right in the back of my shot. So whilst Martyn was trying the trick I began negotiations to get the guy out of the shot. To be fair he was very polite about moving, apparently not realising he was in the way. He then stood next to me whilst I was shooting and started banging on about how he used the skate, standard.

From a photography point of view, I tried to get in as tight as possible to exaggerate the Civic Hall building’s curve through the fisheye. Due to the lighting conditions being so bright, I decided to shoot natural light but wasn’t feeling it, so decided to set up some flashes. This was a struggle due to the brightness of the scene, but eventually I managed to place the flashes close enough to get the photo.
