Digital Camera World - - SHOOTOUT -

RATHER than wan­der­ing and keep­ing an eye out for in­ter­est­in­glook­ing peo­ple, Louise went on the hunt for an in­ter­est­ing back­drop

in­stead. “The lines here at­tracted my eye,” she ex­plains. “I plod­ded up hop­ing I would get lucky when th­ese two ladies rushed past, gig­gling in the rain. I was drawn to their match­ing jack­ets and happy dis­po­si­tion. I’m get­ting braver than I was, so I asked if I could pho­to­graph them. Hap­pily they said yes! I’d al­ready stolen a few shots but I wanted to play a lit­tle more.

“It was damp and over­cast, so I knew the light would be fairly even – but it was a busy spot, and I had to work quickly to avoid the foot­fall for a clean shot. I framed the shot this way be­cause I like or­der and neg­a­tive space. While I ap­pre­ci­ate com­po­si­tional rules such as the rule of thirds, I like to find my own way too.”
