LEGAL CHANGES INTERIOR DESIGNS Architectural photographers face new restrictions as parliament changes the law A NYONE shooting on location could soon face higher insurance rates and reduced income following a change in law that extends the copyright protection of designers, which has been fast-tracked to take effect by the end of July. The repeal of Section 52 of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act will prolong the copyright protection of industrially produced artistic work, including designer furniture, from the current 25 years to the lifetime of the artist plus 70 years. Most significantly for photographers, artistic objects will be protected from 2D, as well as 3D, reproduction. As a number of objects come back into copyright on 28th July, photographers of interior design will need to seek new rights clearances for their existing images, and…

PROJECT 1 Create your own toy story Bring inanimate objects to life with household items and lighting tricks STRUGGLING to find things to shoot? Try revisiting your childhood and bringing toys to life. Felix Hernandez is picking up plaudits for his stylish scale model set-ups, and while some Photoshop work is required to realise the end result – such as the addition of the trees and headlamps in this shot – he keeps the raw ingredients pretty simple. Lighting is key to creating an authentic ‘real world’ illusion. “For example, if I want to recreate a scene with overcast sunlight, I would take a big modifier and put it close to the model to achieve that soft quality of light,” says Felix. “If I want harsh light for a desert scene, I will use…
