Photographing a working hospital emergency department presents a few challenges. Firstly, they are - not surprisingly - open all hours and are therefore well populated and secondly they tend to have a lot of clutter around. By slowing the shutter speed any people in the shot become blurred. To make the place look less messy I compose the shot carefully, move what can be moved or wait for someone to come along and strategically block out the offending article.

One of the challenges with interior photography is the varying temperature of the lighting sources. Fluorescent, incandescent, halogen and LED lighting produce light at different colour temperatures resulting in photos that feature some areas having a greenish or blueish cast while other areas in the photo look just fine. Interior Designers expect the colours of the materials they've selected to be shown correctly in all areas of the picture; this requires careful blending of several images together to achieve an acceptable result.
