I’ve been looking at Joe McNally’s book ‘The Moment it Clicks’ again. He has a nice anecdote about how he was told that one of the best ways to get better pictures is to ’stand in front of more interesting stuff’.
I’m trying that in earnest all this week as the photographer for the press office for the Cheltenham Science Festival. Yesterday with my colleague Sue we had the opportunity to interview and photograph Kathy Sykes, the festival director. This might be the first time I’ve photographed someone who has their own Wikipedia entry. I hope to be adding a few more this week…
Anyhoo, it’s always a pleasure with someone who is confident and relaxed in front of the camera.
