Ambeli Restaurant rated highly in the restaurant scene in Wellington ( it has now closed) and I was hoping to translate this standard into a photograph for the Entertainment Book.
Wanting the mirror reflection in the image, Shaebodine Moleta (Ambeli’s owner) showed no hesitation when asked to ‘adjust' the table’s height to achieve this. I was impressed. The image was meant to show just the couple enjoying themselves but this photo (the test exposure) ended up with Moleta perfectly placed pouring wine. I love being able to capture a documentary image from what was meant to be a posed setting.
