Professional photographers in Scotland - Taking a Different Perspective

July 27, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hi All

One of the challenging things for professional corporate event photographers in Edinburgh and around Scotland during this lockdown has been how to best utilise our time without travelling as much as we would like.  The irony is that with more time we would tend to travel to photograph different destinations but the lockdown has forced most of us to concentrate on the subjects close to home and try to see things from a different perspective.  I managed to re-visit a few of my favourite local subjects, such as waves, the kittiwake chicks in Dunbar, bees and other local landmarks, but this time I tried to do it from a different perpective and often photographed subjects in infrared that I had previously never tackled before ie with the birds and insects for instance.  There is also an opportunity to perfect a particular subject through repitition and to experiment when you wouldn't otherwise have the time, just keeping your eye in is good enough, so that when you return to some professional event or coprorate photography work, you are not rusty and you will be raring to go.  I have also tried out a lot of new tricks and techniques with my software.  given that we probably only use about 20% of the capability of our software, especially with a programme as extensive as Photoshop, we sould at least try new things to offer a different perspective to our clients.  So keep the creative juices flowing and dont let this situation get you down.  I know its easier said than done but we will hopefully come out of this as better photographers.  I for one know I will have a more extensive library of fine art photography images once this is all over.

So, until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin
