I had big ideas with this shoot, my intention was to shoot a photo essay to describe the life of a pub landlord. However when I arrived I was met with Derek who was in the middle of decorating the interior of the building in preparation for reopening. I conducted the interview and managed to shoot a portrait of which I am quite pleased. The difference this time being that I decided to shoot off camera flash. This presented a problem as my plan was to shoot the portrait placing the subject in the middle of the room allowing a large amount of context to add to the rhetoric of the image (Barthes 1977).
