I was asked to shoot a new set of commercial interiors photography for an American company with a Kent research centre. Having already shot a detailed marketing and sales brochure for Q’Straint last year, they have expanded part of their UK testing centre and required additional material.
The operation includes a crash simulation system or “test sled” in what is a world‐class research and design facility. For nearly 30 years, Q’Straint has been developing safety solutions for wheelchair passenger travel – hence the exhaustive and comprehensive research and testing.
The sequence of pictures in the gallery below shows a range of images, all of which required separate lighting and composites. The before and after picture gives an indication of why multiple lights for different parts of a space are required to complete a picture. This type of industrial or commercial interiors photography is the same type of lighting applied to the interiors we shoot for premium properties, refurbishments, developments or other type of interiors and architectural photography. You start by trying to keep the direction of the lighting coming from where it is occurring naturally (in the case, windows) and then built it up from there.
