For this assignment in Tunbridge Wells, Buss Murton Law LLP asked for some portraits of two of their solicitors on location in the town. Rather than have the standard white background, the aim was to utilise some of the innate beauty of the town and thus the photos more personal. We picked the stunning Pantiles area along with a part of the Common near The Mount Edgcombe restaurant, using spots within those areas that offered nice background and complimentary natural light. For the photos at the Common I used off camera flash to give the best lighting whilst incorporating the rocks behind them.
I can see these types of staff photos becoming more and more common in the current climate as they can be done in the fresh air & socially distanced. Plus, it’s always nice showing a bit of your local area off.
