A busy week again, with a corporate event photography commission, Edinburgh, some infrared photography, to my infrared photography Scotland project and finally ending in some newspaper and PR photography for the Midlothian Advertiser. As a corporate event photographer, I am honest about the fact that corporate event photography, particularly conferences is my specialist area and I love doing it. However, I do have a soft spot for fine art infrared photography and I also enjoy sports photography. This week in glorious sunshine I have been involved in motorsports photography in Fife, football in Bonnyrigg and cricket in Penicuik. I am getting used to the cricket photography now and starting to enjoy it, especially when you have time. It presents photographers with totally different challenges than other sports photography commissions and it can be difficult without a long lens, as you are a fair distance from the action. The constant changing positions of the batsman can also present challenges, as it can take a bit of time changing your location as a photographer, however I enjoy it, particularly when the weather is as nice as it was at the weekend.
Finally, this week, I just purchased a Fuji XT2 camera and I am looking forward to throwing myself into the mirrorless camera revolution, following on from my scrapyard photography project using the Fuji XPro 1. Lots more to look forward this week, with some conference photography in Edinburgh and landscape photography throughout Scotland.
Anyway, until next time.
