Mechanical & Engineering Photography.

Construction Industry Photographers.

Construction electrical engineering.

Find a very small space, fill with pipes heat exchangers, valves & pumps add an engineer, client, lighting equipment..and a photographer, then photograph.

Shooting M&E can be a challenge, photography in very small spaces is not just trying to ‘get everything in’ but to show an image that has clarity and some sense of depth.

Photographing the services that keep buildings working is either done during construction phase or as part of a re-fit or upgrade, either way job one on the list when getting to a location is the ‘tidy up’. I will often ask for the location to be tidied last thing day before the gives the airborne dust time to settle and clear, brushing the floors when you are setting for the shoot just fills the air making for less contrast in the image..fills the camera and lenses..and me.

Getting a viewpoint can be a challenge, often there will be only one view that works or is the only place you can set the camera. Then adding lighting, using a technique of mixing both flash and light painting illumination can be used to highlight and add contrast and separation to each of the elements in the photograph.

Lens selection is also a consideration, not just a case of picking the widest shortest focal length but considering how the perspective can be made less extreme by image stiching with a slightly longer focal length lens.

Architectural Photography. Technical.

Canon 17mm TSE. The Big Image Circle.

Architectural photography London,UK.

Getting a view of tall buildings from a close view point and still getting a sense of scale and space can be difficult if there is no more space to get back from.

If you are familiar with Canon TSE lenses you will know that they have a large image circle-the coverage circle of the projected image onto the camera sensor. By utilising as much of this circle a composite image can be created to give an increased field of view without a 'wide' distorted look to the picture.

By taking a series of images and rotating the lens through it's maximum shift parameters then stitching them all together using Adobe Photoshop or PTGui creates a wide view without a distorted look.
