#HackneyLive Lesson Learned
While I was travelling on the Madrid-Lisbon ride, shortly after I fractured my elbow and while we were still in Spain, I was contacted by a representative of Hackney who had found one of my images on this blog and wanted it for an advertisement within a couple of days. I hadn’t uploaded them to my photoshelter account because I’d taken them at such a high ISO that it never occurred to me anyone would want to use one, apart from maybe one documentary photography image for Dance Today.
I asked a friend who lives nearby to go to my place, collect the external hard drives and look for the image. I couldn’t remember if I had keyworded the images or where I had saved the Hackney Live directory so he didn’t manage to find it. After getting back in the early hours of this morning I found it, sent it to my new clients and have uploaded the rest from that night, just in case it happens again.
I played around with the images too, having fun with the dark, the grain and the clear crisp on that icily cold February evening and really didn’t think I was doing it for anyone other than myself. You can see some of them on my moblog and the rest of which you can find at here with the password DanceTog.
Lesson learned! In future some of everything I do will go into my photoshelter account as soon as possible after processing.
Here are some of the results –
