Emma Reynolds, Theatre Director

Emma Reynolds, Theatre DirectorI have said before that interview pieces need a lot of dead space for text and often I shoot images for myself framed to remove this from the shot. In this example I decided to take advantage of a handy step ladder and get a little higher, we were at her office/studio where they create plays etc to take around schools in order to teach children English.

I ended up liking this composition, the slightly out of whack quality and I got the depth of field down to a minimum because when you have highlights or bright colours against black background that are slightly blurry they ‘bloom.’

Emma was an attractive woman and she has a nice smile, I made a point of her having her mug of tea with her as well because it added a casual element and really helps the composition.
