This evening I had the pleasure of being the photographer for The Wonderland Exhibition in the Glass Box in Coventry’s city centre. The exhibition was full of many weird and wonderful things and included a mix of photography, artifacts and screen projections.
As the exhibition was literally in a Glass Box I had to be very mindful of the contrast of light outside and this is one of the reasons I chose to photograph the exhibition in the evening.
One of my favourite photos from the exhibition is the image below. It shows the reflection of two visitors watching the projected Wonderland film while also revealing the night time streetscape outside. Working at this venue has helped me to think outside the box when taking photos for a client. Yes, you need to capture the important images but you can also use your imagination to capture them in an unusual way, which will often give you a much stronger and thought provoking image than you had before.
