Architectural Photography at 24 Monument Street London.

June 05, 2014

Last week I was working at 24 Monument Street, London documenting the work of Eltherington a specialist architectural metal worker, they had recently refurbished the link bridge and all the buildings metal work with new stainless steel panels, soffits, handrails and trims. The problem with metal work is that brightness, and colour is a product of what’s reflected in the metal work rather than the metal work it’s self. So on this shoot the compositions were largely dictated by picking locations where the metal work reflected light surroundings. Shooting towards Lower Thames Street as white vans went past proved the most effective way of getting the reflection needed in the first picture.  The shoot finished off with a trip to the top of the Fire of London Monument to shoot down on the building. A note when planning this type of job don’t leave the 311 step Monument climb carrying a load of gear until the end of the day.
