Yesterday was a shift for the Press Association, working at York Art Gallery. The gallery was open for one special day where visitors and artists were invited to daub the walls with graffiti. It was a fantastic event and I’ve never seen the gallery so busy. After working and sending my photos, I stuck around to play around with lighting and got creative to make the most of an otherwise quiet news day. Here are some of my favourite images from the day.
Off camera strobes attached to Pocked Wizard and CTO gels were used. The images were shot in RAW (to fine tune white balance to achieve a natural final product). The flash colour balance was dialled (with gels) to use the spot lights in the gallery to my advantage. Other than that I remained patient and kept my eyes open for opportunities to add a bit of aesthetic order to the chaos of a great event.
