Portraits on the London Eye

Editorial photo for Merlin Entertainments, on their attraction the London Eye

One of the things I really enjoy about taking photos is the interesting locations you (sometimes) get to shoot at. I was asked to take some portraits for Merlin Entertainment on location at the London Eye, and it doesn’t get much better than that!

Each rotation takes about 25 minutes so I had to get setup, pose the group in various different configurations, and get group and individual photos all in that time. Added to that the desired background, the Houses Of Parliament would only be in shot for a fraction of that time…

From a technical perspective I knew that I would not really have time to set up a lot of lights inside the capsule, so I used on camera flash and a large foldaway silver reflector to illuminate the subjects against the background, this helped to separate them from the background.

Big thanks to Lauren for sorting this out!
