Sometimes the simplest picture is the most effective. Lighting can shape and define an image but I still find an overcast sky is all you need. Jim, the subject in this picture, was one of the crowd that attacked the police van carrying Chris Halliwell, the murder suspect in the Sian O’Callaghan and Becky Godden-Edwards case. Public feelings were running high after Halliwell’s arrest and it boiled over as the van carrying him arrived at Swindon’s Magistrates Court.
This shot was kept very simple, shallow depth of field on a 100mm f/2 lens. It’s Jim that does the work in the shot, not me.
