kelsey2The weather is warming slightly now, tentatively saying that we are slowly starting to receive a few sunnier days than wet days. Even though the weather is still cold it is definitely meaning that spring is right around the corner and we will finally be free of those cold icy mornings, frost on the ground and all that rain we have endured over the winter. So are you starting off a new building project? Now is the time when many jobs can reconvene and really kick off, knowing the weather is becoming more stable and they won’t be halted due to the poor conditions we have suffered over the last few months…

The Kelsey telephones have certainly continued to ring all through the winter, which is very fortunate for us, However they are now becoming very active and our plant hire is busier than normal for this time of year.

From short hires to long term plant hire, we are efficiently juggling our many machines to ensure all customers remain happy and can hire the plant they require. Whether it is one of our many mini diggers, a forklift, or a dumper. We have many different sizes of all machinery, for whatever project you are working on, from small scale domestic jobs to large corporate work.

mini-diggers1Our vast range of telehandlers also means that we can fulfill all requests by our long term customers as well as all the new companies we are meeting along the way.

All the plant hire we offer is designed to make your project just that little bit easier. Whether it is earth removal, installation, building work or groundwork, no task is too huge for one of our machines.

Based in West Sussex, we normally hire throughout Sussex and Surrey, but for longer term hire then we will hire further afield. So if you are starting off a new building project then please call us on 01403 249 125 if you want to make an enquiry.

Take photos that will showcase your work

CameraPhotography is one of those things people often think is easy to do… until they try it out. Often it can be difficult to really portray how magnificent the building/project is through a camera. But it isn’t about buying something flashy to take photos with – beautiful pictures can be taken on your phone! It’s about the technique; lighting, angles, etc. and here are a few pointers:

  1. Shoot straight ahead
    Try to get your camera straight rather than tilting it up on down, otherwise the vertical lines in the photo get distorted which doesn’t look professional.
  2. Shoot at a low angle
    If you’re taking the picture yourself, take it from waist height. This is the most appealing height for a room photo; when your camera sits lower than eye level, your photos will look more like the ones you see in magazines.
  3. Get the lighting right
    Room photoLighting is so important, and using natural light will give you the most professional photos. Don’t use flash as this can make lighting uneven and create harsh shadows. Plan ahead and think about what time of day will have the best lighting for the interior/exterior you’re taking a picture of.When taking exterior photos, try to keep the sun behind you and utilise softer early morning light or more dramatic late afternoon light.
  4. Don’t use panoramic
    If you’re using a smartphone, you’ll probably have the panoramic camera feature which people use when they can’t fit a whole setting into a standard photo. But panoramic pictures can create a misleading look of the setting and make it distorted.
  5. Return at a later date
    Don’t just take photos of your work when you’ve only just completed it – go back to the project at an agreed later date, once it’s furnished so you can take pictures of it in a real setting!
  6. Show off your work
    Don’t forget to upload your photos onto a portfolio page on your website and onto your social media profiles. Section your portfolio page into different types of images (e.g. interior, exterior, new builds, extensions, garden, etc.).
