The Kelpies in Infrared, Professional Fine Art Photography
When I first started shooting digital infrared photography one of the first things I photographed was the Kelpies installation in Falkirk. This fine work of art is a major tourist attraction in Scotland and I also had the privilege of photographing it as part of a corporate photography commission in various locations around Scotland for Scottish Enterprise in 2015. However, along with the ponies at Traprain Law, The Isle if Skye and my highland cow photos, the Kelpies has been one of the best sellers. So it was with a bit of excited anticipation that I returned to the location last week. The weather was perfect for infrared, with lots of cloud and sunshine and while it was busy, it was not as crowded as it would have been in July and August. The location is also ideal as it overlooks a canal with boats, in addition to trees and grass, also great for infrared. Metallic structures are also ideal subjects for this genre and the sheer size of the installation creates a rather superhero effect. Combine this with the rather spooky nature of infrared and you have an ideal location for professional infrared photography. Visit the website for more, but in the meantime here is the original photo that started it all, shown below.
Until next time.
