Sometimes, the best way is through…

Sometimes, the most literal image isn’t the one that communicates the best.  An example of this is photographing surgical students in a cadaver lab.  Yes, body parts everywhere, in various stages of surgery.  If you’re shooting for images that depict the students, how they concentrate, how they look while working, it may not be the best idea to show the grisly details of the bodies.  Sometimes, the best way is through.  This image was shot through the shoulders of other students working together.  It shows the concentration of the student and a potential applicant could look at this and think, “yes, that could be me.”  The cropping was done in camera.  It follows some of the general rules for positioning the subject but breaks the rule of not cropping into the subject.  Besides, I think the rules are just “guidelines”! The only post work was to increase the saturation a little bit to help the blues of the surgery gown and the warmth of her face.  Look ahead, look behind, and always, look through.

In the healthcare world, there are nurses and folks that take care of you before the doctor gets to you. They need training on all the various tests and things that the doctors use to treat you…how to draw blood, stick in an intravenous drip, check blood pressure and other things that take education and lots of practice.  Here are some images we did for The Cabarras College of Health Sciences…

You recognize these stoic “bird like” contraptions.  These things probe our ears, noses, and throats, and when standing alone, look like proud storks checking the way of the wind. Healthcare Photography takes me not only to the doctors who help us but to the equipment they use to check us out.  The Otoscope is “an instrument designed for visual examination of the eardrum and the passage of the outer ear, typically having a light and a set of lenses.” (see webster).

Oh, and a doctor.  Don’t want to forget he’s here, too!

We just finished photography for CareRing’s HOPE FOR COMMUNITY HEALTH Annual Luncheon on Wednesday, October 8th from 11:30 – 1:00 pm at the Westin Charlotte.  This is one of the non-profit projects we do every year or so.  Care Ring is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing preventive health services for the uninsured, underinsured or those  otherwise lacking access to affordable, high-quality preventive health care. The organization annually serves more than 7,000 people in Mecklenburg County and is a leader in collaborative efforts to improve community health. (taken from their website).  As a charlotte healthcare photographer, we enjoy these projects because they give us a lot of room for creativity.  Check them out, they do great work in our community.
