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.

Here's a section of some of my favourite images from Rapture Theatre's new production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf which I was photographing last night. Well worth a look. It opens at the MacRobert Arts Centre this week and then is on tour. More details at www.rapturetheatre.co.uk

Currently working on some concept/graphic Glasgow images for a builders merchants. The final images will be printed and framed for their meeting room. It will be nice to see some physical prints for a change. The client is unsure whether to opt for colour, or black and white. I think I am leaning towards colour.

Just completed a brilliant project photographing developments throughout Scotland for a housing association. I'm always impressed by the level of planning and thought that goes into these houses both from the architects and the housing association. The photography combined aerial views taken with the drone as well as shots of the houses and architectural detail.

Ever wondered how polythene bags are made? You might be surprised at the scale of the facility required to do it. This is one of my favourite industrial locations as I never cease to be amazed at what's involved. It's like something out of a science fiction film. It starts with plastic pellets being injected into a cauldron where they are melted. The resulting goo (excuse the non-scientific term) is then extruded from the cauldron and as it is pulled up it creates a film. This is then carried about 100 feet up into a tower where it is cooled. The final film is then cut up and made into bags for products like fertiliser and gravel.

Laura BinnieNice work Richard. Bizarrely, we recently produced a video for a company that turn old plastic bags into pellets! The circle of life... of a plastic bag.

Some interesting work recently at Bio City. It's always challenging working in clean room environments as there is a limit to how much equipment you can take in. You also have to be very sensitive to photographing whilst in a working environment. Quite a contrast to working on construction sites where you're always trying to find somewhere reasonably mud free to lay your camera bag. ... See MoreSee Less
