Paul RussellAt night this viaduct is lit up, a car to bus moving pan would look spectacular, bus sharp, viaduct blurred, NW is behind the viaduct from this position, so potentially some great twilight sky colours and detail behind

Blink Imaging LtdHi Paul, I agree, as a photographer you always want to do the more creative option but that wasn't part of the brief. The shots had to be taken during the day so the buses would be cleary visible. Also at this time of year it's not dusk till about 10pm and there are fewer busses running at that time. The brief was to capture as many different types of bus as possible. The location was also important so blurring the background wasn't an option either. You can always do that later if you want to. If you give the client good sharp images it gives them more options to play with whereas if you delver images with a blurred background then they don't have any other options. I've also shot vehicles with a blurred background before and it's not that easy to do. When I've done this previously I've had full control over a vehicle so I can ask it to make several passes. Again, that wasn't an option. There's always a fine line between having the vehicle sharp and the background blurred. If I had tried that here I wouldn't have been able to deliver the number of different images the client wanted. Having worked as a commercial photographer for over 20 years one thing I've learned is that while you always want to try and push things creatively it's also crucially importing to listen to what the client wants. Thanks for your comment though. It's raised some interesting points.

One of the things that constantly fascinates me as a commercial photographer is the huge variety of products I'm asked to photograph. This particular product weighted nearly 30 tons. Here my latest blog on how I tackled it.
