The wonderful people over at Serious launched the Serious Trust in 2012 and have quickly developed a super roll call of Patrons and Trustees including inspirational musician Hugh Masekela & the journalist and news presenter Jon Snow.
The opportunity arose recently for them both to meet at Two Temple Place on the Embankment in London and conduct an interview for C4 News. This was then followed by an evening's reception organised by the Serious Trust with an audience to hear them discuss Hugh's musical odyssey through South Africa's political history and turmoil.
Prior to the C4 News film crew recording this revealing interview (or click the screengrab below) I set-up my lights and trained my camera on their friendly vibe. Although Jon had never interviewed Hugh before, he has been a long term fan - and I wanted to capture this informal excitement within a 'formally' framed photograph.
Loving Jon's infamous tie selection displaying super continuity too...
Here's a set-up shot, taken by C4 News Producer Kay Bibi @KayBibi with interview seats ready in the background. The keenly observed will see a secondary light with a 10º grid behind the cameraman which just lightly fills in the left curtain area in my final frame, without spilling out onto the woodwork and creating excess refection.
