Lockdown like everybody else, has me itching to do something creative. I spotted a young girl called Maddie yet to start university interested in having some shots done on Facebook so too some time out between finishing work and heading home to take some shots in Manchesters Spinningfields.
When shooting (with no equipment except my camera with a 50mm attached) one of the neon clad “helpers” for Spinningfields approached us and told us that photoshoots aren’t allowed on the property. I told him that this wasn’t a commercial shoot so I’m within my right. He told me that one of his colleagues would be coming back once he had left to sort it out. We had finished 3 minutes after the conversation.
Shooting late in the evening allowed for some soft light and I lightly tweaked the colour for a consistant tone to the images. No over-editing or fancy gimics, just simple honest photography.
