sometimes shooting situations don’t allow you to compose your shots how you would like. this shot was taken in the Malvern hills. we were actually on stairway, going up a hill. to capture this i was backed up as far as the railing and didn’t have a wider lens with me. to be honest, even with a wider lens, distortion aside, it wouldn’t have given me the feel i wanted, as the stairs and dirt were not how i envisioned the foreground. that’s where photoshop comes in… it allows me to build the picture how i want, allowing me to fill in the gaps so to speak and allow me to construct the image i see in my head, even if the environment isn’t ideal.
