Photographic Inspiration

I take photographic inspiration from anywhere and everywhere. In the Midland Hotel in Morecambe is a banner advertising the hotel as a wedding venue. You can see it on the left and there is a photo of a bride on their famous staircase. At the top of the staircase is the Neptune and Triton medallion by Eric Gill and this is on the photo.

It is a nice photograph so off we went to mimic it. Well not only mimic but improve on it. The problem was that I didn't want to change to a wide-angle lens, and I also preferred the mural as the background but this is not on the top floor of the staircase. The photo on the right is actually a compilation of a photo from the floor below and a photo of the medallion. If you look closely you will see that it doesn't quite match up e.g. there are no lights on the floor below. Maybe we will take this photo on the wedding day but this time from the correct floor.

Happy snapping
