School building – special assignment

Achieving a special request by a builder and school

Looking back through the archive I came across this image that was shot in-camera not created afterwards in software. The request was for some images that shows a school having building work carried on while the school is open – but with no identifiable children in shot (other than staff children).

After the routine shots of building work I decided to try a long exposure with the camera hand held by me (long before “vibration-reduction” lenses were invented) while I was perched on a cherry-picker with the children running around some of the staff and workers. It turned out to be the most popular shot of the day despite having no buildings in sight!
