I was in Kirkgate today at the Wakefield offices of Jark PLC, a recruitment agency with offices around the UK, to shoot some head shots of their sales team. Every other Thursday, the sales team meets up at the Wakefield office to do some tele-marketing and my brief was to record a busy sales day. I used the long end of a 70-200 f/2.8 to compress the scene and also shot fairly wide to dissolve the background distractions but I was forced also into shooting fairly close with a wide angle, something I don’t usually do in portraiture unless I’m going for something really dramatic. Wide angle lenses, although capturing the whole scene, have a nasty habit of distorting things that appear close to the lens whereas the telephoto shots do the exact opposite and flatten the perspective giving a more pleasing feel to the picture. Here’s a few shots of the Jark boys and girls hard at work on the telephone.
