As mentioned in my previous quick blog, I had a press photoshoot at the weekend at the Midstock Music Festival. Although I have photographed music before, this was my first Music Festival as an official photographer and I was a bit out my comfort zone, as My specialism is either event and corporate photography in Edinburgh or weddings, but I had a great time, it's a real buzz being on stage and the acts were great especially the Skids and Stevie McCrorie. Come to think of it, music festivals are a bit like photographing conferences, at the gig I could only photograph for the first three songs, at a conference I restrict the photography to the start of the speakers presentation. Both the conferences and speakers are on stage and it's all about catching the expressions and emotions. Mind you conferences don't sell booze and the crowd are a bit quieter. Lots of photos on the website from the gig.
This weekend I am very much looking forward to a wedding in Edinburgh, with one at the Rocks in Dunbar the following week. I am also launching my new website at www.edinburghphotographer.com, for my infrared photography in Scotland and fine art photography, it's in the early stages but tell me what you think. Anyway, until next time.
