Let there be light

Sometimes in this job things simply don't go to plan. Like this week when the subject of my shoot arrived just as it was pretty much dark-nine minutes after five at this time of year isn't a great time to get an outdoors photo!
Thanks to the wonders of photoshop though, all is not lost. A bit of fiddling with levels, curves and colour balance achieved an ok image, with the only give-away to the one second exposure time,(on a tripod!), being the blurred headlights of a car in the background.
I didn't need to worry though. A clever designer at The Telegraph simply montaged a photo taken at 3pm with a lightened up one shot after darkness fell. Problem solving in action :-)
