#Picsofthemonth: Getting Close
Updated: Feb 13
Our photographer David has an eye for the details and our grading crew does too – talk about the perfect combo for some killer photos. This past month we've got great shots showcasing the hard work and positive attitudes of our crews. So many great shots, David had to pick two for this month's spotlight. Let him walk you through his thought process!
Always First, Faces
Faces are so important in photography. This may seem obvious but there’s a lot to consider like the angle you take the shot at and what action is being done. Just think to yourself, can I make an interesting story from a photo without the face in the shot?
In the Moment
Typically we try to avoid posed photos because we want to capture the guys in their natural element. But they do ham it up for the camera sometimes - especially our operator Chris!
A Closer Look
We don’t just capture the big picture of a project. We also want to show you a closer look at the people who are working hard on the job every day. The two shots above show off the attention to detail being taken to ensure this retaining wall is level and sturdy.
One of the things we want to try and capture regularly while at job sites are the moments of the experienced guys teaching the others. Chris and Tyler are just two of the guys that spent months working on this retaining wall and we got to see Chris help Tyler learn the importance behind some of the building techniques. It’s really important to build a culture that cultivates moments like this!!
