12 — The Edit Station
It’s so important to have a good place to work. I’m fortunate enough to have some great places to work. One of them includes the end of the bar at Coffee Aroma. I’ve done some of my best work sat just there. In the past, more often than not, with John O’Nolan sat right next to me.
John approached me to shoot some promotional images for his latest venture, Ghost, naturally I said yes. Ghost is “an open source blogging platform which makes writing pleasurable and publishing simple” — genuinely can’t wait to start using it.
After chatting about the brief John & I decided ‘our spot’ NEEDED to be included as a sort of homage to past times. It was an incredibly tight spot to shoot & light (shiny screens + strobist = arghhh) but I’m really happy with the results. I shot a few more images with some modelling help from Spadgerina go check out all the shots in action on Try Ghost.
Note: scroll to the bottom to see a lighting diagam for this shot.
In other news, there was a classic car meet on the waterfront in Lincoln on Sunday so my lady & I had a walk down for some photos & fresh air. There were some lovely examples of classic automotive enginering on show, I’ve attached a few of my favourite shots below.
