We were setting up to shoot this executive in the Royal Bank Tower, as part of a feature on CMA’s in Canada. A call came in and we were told that it was now to be a cover image for the magazine, and that an entirely different image and style would be required. As with many rooms ( no matter how stylish they are) they can often appear cluttered in an image, and have distracting windows etc.. that don’t quite lend themselves well to stand alone cover concept.
Shooting from a very low angle, is a trick I like to use from time to time, and in this case it did the job nicely, as we were able to get a sense of the richness to the environment, without including much of it and making the image too busy. A bit of strategic posing guidance, and we had a nicely styled image, cover ready, and in just a few minutes as part of the 10 minutes we had with this individual.
