Organization before the shoot

Every inside|out newsletter has its own challenges. This issue, like the one before it, was particularly challenging because of Corona:

  • All those who were to be photographed were still working remote at home
  • A group shoot was out of question, because of too much proximity
  • Single shoots only in the “set box” as in inside|out no. 22. The pictures should be put together later as a group. The ETH carpentry had already produced this set for us for the previous issue. It still stood as a “silent witness” in the big STB meeting room

However, the tightening of the corona measures meant that this time we could not go through with it as planned. And therefore we could not give the ITS staff a face. Unfortunately we had to unload all the photographed people shortly before the shoot. The pictures (and a lot more) would have kept the employees in the photo. Now there were only these pictures without people.

“Behind the Scenes”: Safety first, therefore photo without ITS staff
