We now continue with our original programming….
I shoot a lot of small kitchens, and finding the right composition often means putting the camera in some weird places. In this case, it was over the sink.
Now, it might have been possible to collapse the legs, remove the center post, and somehow plant one leg in the sink, extend another out onto the countertop, and let the third one dangle somewhere (perhaps anchoring it with some gaffer’s tape?)…..but it might not have worked, either. That sink isn’t very deep, and I suspect the camera would still have been too high.
Anyway, having the ability to run the center post out horizontally has allowed me to get comps I couldn’t have gotten any other way, save hand-holding the camera (something I’m not averse to doing, but not at shutter speeds of 2 seconds, like I was doing here!).
More from this shoot, with 1Columbia Design, coming soon….
