Infrared Photography Edinburgh and Beyond

Hi Everyone

What weather, wow.  This time of the year is usually quiet for conference photography in Edinburgh, and other corporate photoshoots, due to the holiday season, so I tend to do other stuff.  I was photographing a motor sport event at the weekend, which was good fun, but I have decided to talk about infrared photography.  I went to Edinburgh on friday, on what I felt was the hottest day in the city I can remember, although there may have been hotter ones, I am getting older.  This type of heat and bright sunshine does not lend itself to good photography normally, but for infrared, it is ideal.  The stronger the sun the better and if it is closer to midday, even better, so friday was ideal.  I also went a bit daft on the post processing for one or two of the shots.  Infrared photography can be a bit like photography on drugs, especially the colour stuff.  So I hope you enjoy the photos I have added to my site, one of them is attached to this blog.  of course, you can also keep it fairly conventional in black and white, which gives you a fairly contrasty image, one that is very difficult to achieve with normal black and white photography.   The photos are from the Festival Wheel at the centre of Edinburgh and the Scott Monument, scene of a scary engagement photoshoot I had last year.

Anyway, a busy week awaits, with some corporate headshots in Glasgow, followed by wedding photography in East Lothian at the weekend.

See you soon.

All the best

Kind Regards
