Yesterday I spent the day at one of the Bristol Machine Shops in Sudbury with Epiroc photographing the different stages of the refurbishing process that Bristol meticulously provides. Days. I could spend days in this shop photographing the people, products and machines being used simultaneously throughout the day. Epiroc products displayed before and after the refurb process catch my eye over and over as we had our walkabout before I started my session. I have said this before and I will say it again, there is “art” everywhere in machine shops if you look for it and I will display some in my upcoming posts when I get the go ahead form my client.
Sometimes you need to capture a scenario where you just can’t be behind the camera due to location, confined space, safety or sometimes all of the above. In these instances I simply use my remote triggers to trip the shutter while I stand back out of harms way while waiting for the process to end so I can see what my efforts have captured. It’s similar to the film days when you didn’t know what you really had until you were sitting in your car pawing through the freshly developed prints from the lab.
