A wise man one told me the first thing to remember about writing a case study is that the case should have a problem for the readers to solve. The case should have enough information in it that readers can understand what the problem is and, after thinking about it and analyzing the info, the reader should be able to see the proposed solution.
A good case study is more than just a description. It is information arranged in such a way that the reader is put in the same position as the case writer was at the beginning when they were faced with a new situation and asked to figure it out.
Setting up the camera: Burst mode, Focus Mode and Aperture priority
In my opinion the most important setting on the camera when shooting a fast moving subject is the burst mode, when selected, this will let you hold the shutter down to take a burst of photos instead of pressing to take one at a time. Useful when you are can’t predict the exact moment for something to happen.
The focus mode should be AI servo (AI stands for artificial intelligence). The camera will try to predict the speed and distance of the moving subject. In this mode the camera will keep re-focusing on what is in the centre...
Guide to etiquette when photographing royalty
Over the years we’ve had the pleasure of taking pictures of the Royal Family quite a few times. Working on these projects, we have built relationships with the press officers and have come to understand their full requirements on etiquette. Some of these principles are equally applicable when working with other VIPs (like Politicians), where as some are only Royal specific.
Usually when photographing an event in which royalty is present, unless there is a special reason, the photographer won’t be introduced to the Royal....
Whether it’s right or wrong, every day we make decisions purely on the basis of how things look, in effect we do judge a book by its cover for much of the time. A recent 10 week long eye–tracking study by theladders.com recruitment portal showed that a massive 19% of the total time spent looking at Linkedin profiles was spent solely on the profile picture.
Linkedin’s Communication Director Nicole Williams shared her insights into some common profile photo mistakes with businessinsider.com:
A photo with a four-legged friend. Unless you’re a veterinarian, don’t post a photo...
This book was created to showcase the wide variety of photography produced for a range of key Grainge Photography clients. Featuring blue chip companies and prestigious organisations like the Royal Mail, Coca-Cola, Transport for London and the Royal College of General Practitioners, the calibre of Grainge Photography’s clients speaks for itself.
Showing a broad range of the types of photography undertaken by the company, the book aims to give an idea of what is possible to potential clients as well as existing clients who may only use Grainge photography for one purpose.
Video preview of my book: 'Care - Portrait of a charity'
Over the last 18 years I have had the pleasure and privilege of documenting many of Jewish Care’s varied services and fund raising activities. At every shoot I have been humbled by the passion and commitment displayed by all the staff ranging from management to the volunteers and everyone in between.
Jewish Care’s 1500 staff and 3000 volunteers provide inspirational services to 7000 members of the community and their families, changing their lives for the better.
Shot over a period of about ten years over many hundreds of individual jobs for the London Underground. The video showcases the content of the book Tube: A photographic journey through the London Underground by Justin Grainge.
It gives a rarely seen insight into the one of the world’s largest and busiest metropolitan transport networks. Including behind the scenes locations which the traveling public never see, and the maintenance that takes place on the network when it's closed overnight.
This project was born shortly after Justin was commissioned to shoot one of the key events of the 150 year...
Quite a few people asked where they can see a preview of my book 'Auschwitz - 70 years on', so I have made this video showing some of the pictures.
The project was undertaken as part of ancestral research, I visited the most potent symbol of the holocaust. In July 2013 me and my family undertook a trip to Poland, Latvia and Kaliningrad (previously Königsberg) to trace the places where our ancestors had lived until the 1930’s. With numerous pogroms taking place in the first half of the twentieth century, some had already made the journey to Britain before the rise of the Nazis.
I had a really interesting shoot at futurefest on Saturday.
Including the world premiere of Neurosis, a mixed-reality thrill ride developed by Professor Brendan Walker's Thrill Laboratory, with the support of Middlesex University, Horizon Research Institute, Arts Council England, and friends.
Neurosis features a six-degree-of-freedom motion simulator and virtual reality headset to immerse the rider in a surreal environment, controlled not by a ride operator, but by the rider's own brain activity. This activity generates an audio-visual virtual world where pathways emerge, tumbling,...
