Last week I headed to London Fields lido to shoot some swimming.
I wouldn't normally have chosen to shoot sport but it was the theme for a Magnum/IdeasTap brief, and I figured it would be a good challenge to do something different.
I liked the idea of shooting someone who does sport on a regular basis, but is not an athlete. I wasn't looking for bulging muscles and super-human strength, but wanted to show a more typical engagement with exercise. Here are the results:
It didn't win but it was a good exercise in thinking about how I would tackle a brief, then putting a plan into action and comparing the results. If you're interested check out the winning images here.
