The three most important things about getting a good photograph are lighting, lighting and, you guessed it, lighting. Framing and composition are also important, but whether it’s a portrait, a landscape shot, a product picture, or an aerial shot, the thing that really makes a photograph is the light. Stand out in a field somewhere and take a shot of a view. Do it again from the same spot every couple of hours starting at 6.00 in the morning and finish at 8.00 in the evening and though you will have the same subject, framing and composition in every picture,… Read more »

Friday Pieday! Lunchtime pie at work

Well 2015 has been and gone so we’re taking the chance to reflect on what an amazing year it was for GGS.   The year started off with stand builds, photography, design and a few small changes… We said a farewell to the last original director of GGS, Peter Griffin, who retired in April after working hard for the company for the last 40 years.
