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.
