The Luxury of Time for Professional Photographers in Scotland
I thought as we are approaching an ease in the lockdown regulations that this would be a good moment to talk about the benefits of having more time to concentrate on personal photographic projects. As a professional fine art and corporate event photographer working in Edinburgh and around Scotland, my event photography work has been a bit non-existant recently, although there are signs things are starting to pick up.
One of the advantages of this situation is that you are forced to concentrate on something fairly local and this restriction can be a good thing, as you have to think in a more micro way, concetrating on the small details of the place you live. How many of us dont visit what is around us. I think I visited Edinburgh Castle once in my lifetime, yet it is the first thing a visitor to the city would do. My infrared work has been a saviour during this time and I have had the luxury of being able to concetrate on small photography projects. I have visited a lot of harbours recently and each harbour is different and has its own individual challenges and cretive possiblities. On a recent visit to Eyemouth Harbour, I noticed reflections onteh watter, casued by a combination of light and oil in the water, I wondered how this would look in infrared and the results are shown on my website, with a photo attached to this blog. Photography has proved good for my mental health during this time and also forced me to stop thinking of getting new equipment, as I have no money anyway, I have been aiming to use my existing gear even more effectively. I have a wedding photography commission due next month and some motor sport event photography in Scotland, but all this is still in a bit of doublt at the moment, so we shall wait and see. Until then, there will be plenty of time for infrared photography and special projects.
Until next time, stay safe.
