hope I’ve summoned up the jaws music as this is what the image is supposed to convey.
Commissioned by Dig for Fire in sheffield – (they do seem to get some very interesting accounts and always conceive some arresting images).
The saw was photographed and Photoshopped to enhance the look and then ‘all’ I needed was some convincing woodgrain, in the correct pattern of course!
I must have looked around half a dozen likely places – diy superstores, timber yards, furniture shops etc but in the end I created the texture from scratch in Photoshop and then judiciously blended one or two reference shots over the background.
Typically about a week later I found the perfect woodgrain on a cafe table at Chatsworth but the job was already done.
