Book cover shoot
10/10/11I've just spent an afternoon at the July 7th Memorial in Hyde Park (in memory of the people killed by the terrorist bombs in London in 2005). I had been asked to photograph the Memorial for a cover for a book due to be published next March.
The view requested was quite a challenge - a vertical shot of just the pillars and sky - method used? My Canon 50D balanced on its back on a picnic rug with a remote control cable attached whilst I hid behind pillars to avoid being in a wide angle shot (add 'inventiveness' to the skills required by a photographer!).
