Wakefield commercial photographer: Nationwide call centre
Continuing a busy Easter week, I was again wearing my Wakefield commercial photographer hat but this time for a new client – Nationwide. I was booked through a marketing agency to shoot some images of Nationwide’s call centre staff on Paragon business park with the brief of capturing natural shots of the staff at work on the telephones, interacting with each other and also to grab a few images of the front of the building. I really enjoy the challenge of creating images on location and used a simple two light set-up with a couple of off camera flashes. The key light was pushed through a small octabox and I used an accent light fitted with a home-made snoot to carve the subjects out of the background. The exposures were, of course, balanced to ambient and once this was done, it was just a case of walking round the office capturing the images. As ever, my go to lens was the 70-200 as I just love the shallow DOF wide open, but I did use the 50mm f/1.4 a few times. I’ve recently fallen back in love with the humble ‘nifty fifty’ and have been using it for a good few shoots, paired with the exquisite 135mm f/2 DC lens which delivers some dreamy OOF backgrounds. Here’s a sample of what I shot on the day and if you are looking for a Wakefield commercial photographer, then just give me a call on 01924 229800 to discuss your requirements.
