Artist's Description

Haven’t been that active of late on RB, unfortunately we do all have to have a proper day job… As you know I do a lot of commercial work in the shoe industry…something Northamptonshire England was famous for in the distant past. I was given the brief of producing a retro style showcard for John White Shoes to go in all the Moss Bros shops. I do all their work by the way! The client wanted their old factory of the 1950’s as a backdrop…now I could have done the job in photoshop, but decided to to it the old way…all in camera. Here you can see I have printed an enlarged section from a 7×5 inch scan and hung it as the back drop. After fiddling for ages with the angle, height and perspective…it was a simple task of converting to a warm BW image.

Sometimes the old ways work, sometimes not…lol
