A major part of commercial and industrial photography is capturing images of workers and a Boston Photographer who specializes in this sphere of photography is often required to produce pictures that embody more than the functions of employees. The photos must also project the ideal corporate image of the company. Getting your pictures to indeed “say a thousand words” takes both patience and preparedness. Not every shot can be staged with your choice of background, worker placement, lighting or just about anything at all! Nor are you likely to get the chance to ask workers, who are actively involved in a task, to go through it again once they are complete and are moving on to the next task in their schedule. In order to be prepared, a good Boston Photographer, like myself, does some research of the client’s industry in general and the specific procedures most likely to be seen at the shoot’s location. Preparedness also includes being aware of possible dangers and safety measures that can keep you and those around you safe. Taking along the right equipment is a big part of arriving at a shoot completely prepared to catch the most stunning images. As for patience, that comes from a combination of experience and confidence in your ability to spot the perfect set up and grab the shot before the aspects of the scene change. The above image of Siemens technicians hard at work is a prime example of what happens when all the elements of your shoot come together – beautifully! The ominously dark clouds overhead are in contrast with the blue sky out on the horizon. That anvil cloud (cumulonimbus incus, for the meteorology buffs) stands out and catches your eye in the left of the picture. There is sense of urgency in the weather, in the tautness of the rope and in the effort the gentlemen are putting into steadying it. Altogether, a very spontaneous yet well-composed shot.
