Well this last week I have been commissioned to photograph two shopping areas for Cottee Parker Architects. Basically the brief is to capture the “retail buzz”.
All week I have been visiting the Emporium and Centro both in the trendy area of Brisbane, trying to get the BUZZ. The weather has been stormy and wet which was why I thought there were very few people around. When I talked to the shop and restaurant owners they all said it had been very quiet for a couple of months.
I have some nice twilight shots, but a buzz with hardly any shoppers around…..that is a challenge. I have set the camera up on its tripod and taken photos of every person who walks through the view. Then at home in Photoshop I have merged and added these people into one image to try and make it look less empty.
Still got two weeks to go, so Thursday and Friday I will be back on site…..fingers crossed.
