Wakefield commercial photographer : The Cornmill, Darlington
Wakefield commercial photographer: I headed up the A1 to Darlington this evening for my first shoot of the year for MK Illuminations. I’ve done Christmas lights photography for MK for the past few years and this year they kindly commissioned me again to shoot their northern lighting schemes. After studying the locations for the schemes, I decided to start with the Cornmill centre in Darlington as it is a small mall and within easy striking distance. There were no outside lights and no glass atrium so everything was confined to shooting inside and fighting with the fluorescent lights. I decided to go wide with some of the images and used the legendary Nikkor 16mm f/2.8 which is a true fisheye lens. I love the curves it creates in the images and the beauty of this lens is that, should the client not be so keen on the fisheye effect, the nikon software can correct the distortion to give a more natural looking wide angle image.
