Shooting pool

I was recently commissioned to photograph a couple of pool and snooker clubs [Hurricane Rooms]. One was an old establishment with an endearingly faded warmth that was the hangout of loyal locals. The other was a newly built chic interior with a rather more hip appeal. I wanted to capture something of the atmosphere of the two places and in particular the way that light plays such a crucial role in creating a sense of place and mood. I used long exposures and just allowed the light, the people and the movement to create the picture.

Here’s a few of the results.
