Ecuadorian fishermen were unloading a cargo of freshly caught Tuna on a pier just across from our cruise ship – an ideal opportunity for a photographer to express ideas about how people feel about their jobs. I have been teaching corporate communicators how to do this for the last 35 years, so this task felt like a homecoming of sorts for me. This man was transferring these fish from the frozen lockers on board the fishing boat to a waiting truck. They were still steaming as he flipped them into a big net and sent them on their way to market. Once again, vantage point is the key to a communicative image. I watched the angle of the fisherman’s arm carefully, and it formed a v-shape similar to the tailfins of the fish whenever he would flip one of them. To relate the shape of his arm to the shape of those fins, I had to get down low and shoot up. This vantage point also creates backlighting, making the fins appear to be translucent, and at the same time abstracting the face of the man to place the emphasis purely on his body language. My low camera position also pulls the viewer into the action of the picture. Instead of just passively observing this fellow at work, we all become part of the cargo itself.
