I was asked by work to take photos of a client's recording studio. Didn't know what to expect, but the set up and lighting in the room persuaded me to just use a tripod and move myself for compositions.

A mix of pure abstract blocks of colour and workman-like, functional detail. Very effective. And different, you won't see another near-identical image on the next row in the Gallery...

Very posh!,much nicer than some of the studios i've shot!.Colours and comp work well.Cant help wondering if a hand coming in from the bottom touching the sliders would have helped?,and brought the human element into it too?,just a thought,hope you dont mind,
Chris.

Yes Moira, the abstract nature really appealed to me. And all the pieces are in their working positions, I just had to move myself to find the layout I wanted.

Chris - funnily enough, there was a hand in the image - you just can't see it. This was a 15 second exposure, to get the depth of field I needed in the available light, so I waggled my fingers in line with the monitor for a second or two to prevent it burning out that part of the image.

It fulfills the brief and the colours are great. I find the yellow speaker a bit too prominent. Assuming the window looks through to the recording room/booth, a shot looking through it would increase the feeling of space and show more of the workings of the studio.

Hi SteveCharles - the speaker cone is such a vibrant yellow it does leap out, but I kind of like that (and am not enough of a post-processor that I could tone it down without killing it).

I have another version of this shot with the lights on in the sound booth - it works, but really needs a polariser to kill the reflections, so I'm going to re-shoot the shot when I remember to bring the filter in.

Thanks for the comments.
