Sport Event Photography in Scotland and the Partial lockdown

August 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hi Everyone

One of the things I have missed during this awful pandemic has been sport and event photography in Scotland.  As a professional sports, event and conference photographer working around Scotland, I have really missed this aspect of my work.  Some of the events cancelled included, motor sport, football, rugby, bungee jumping and golf.  So when i went a walk with my daughter last week, I jumped (pardon the pun) at the chance to photograph her jumping from some old fallen trees along the East Lothian coast at the John Muir Walk.  I thought I would make it interesting and I fitted a manual focus fish-eye lens onto my Fuji XT2 and fired a few shots of at a very low angle, while Gina jumped onto the sand.  The results were pretty good, with the low angle giving the impression of extreme height.  Of course, it helps that Gina is really up for this kind of thing and her athletic movements also resulted in some dramatic images.  I have always been a fan of low angled shooting at ground level and in previous corporate positions, I have included some arty dramatic ground level urban and architectural images.  I also completed a project on puddle photos taken in Edinburgh and Glasgow and I also try to incorporate this technique in my sports photography commissions and infrared photography work where appropriate.  So enjoy the photos, more are on the website.

Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin
