Playing with weed

I was supposed to join a camera club I’m part of but I couldn’t make it. So I decided to pop outside and get a few weeds for some macro shots. Got a bokeh background on the computer screen and off I went.

Hope you like it.

Always look both ways when taking photos

I was taking photos of the Forth road bridge and didn’t take make notice of the Forth rail bridge. It’s been taken to death BUT when I turned around I got this image.

Untitled_HDR2-fbI loaded it up on Viewbug and got into that month’s featured photos.
My best results so far on a single image. 50 peer awards and 120 likes as well as having 6 Photo Trifecta awards.

The actual image I was there for that night was this one.

City secrets

We should investigate our cities better when it comes to it’s history and hidden secrets. I only had glimpses of Glasgow’s hidden gems. I was one day there for a specific reason and had a few hours spare. This was the result of a walk I took trying to find the gems.

A combination of the 5 bridge legs under the railway bridge at the river.
Combined-fbI was playing around with long exposure and traffic. This was a post office truck going across my shot.
I used two photos over each other to end up with a split of both.

Revisiting sites with new eyes

I saw a photos which tweaked my interest and I knew I have to go back to visit a site I have been at a few times BUT with a new goal in mind.

It was a misty evening and I phoned someone I know who lives close to the location, he confirmed it’s misty there. I jumped in the car and drive the 30 min and arrived very disappointed as the mist didn’t look great at all. As I have learned with photography don’t give up to quickly.

I walked down and spend the rest of the evening getting these photos.

 

My favourites of the evening.

I think this came out looking great with the spotlights at both ends of the eye.

The landscape photos looks great when the photo is full screen.

As I was leaving I tried to get a few photos of the Kelpies reflecting in the water.
Normally this would be red or blue but as I started the photo it was blue and the photo ended in red
the Kelpies came out as pink. Great bit of luck and I prefer the pink over the red.IMG_7569-fb

I have realised not to give up on a location as you could always get a fresh idea to run with and test out.

Thank you for viewing my photos

A walk in Edinburgh

A visit to Edinburgh always has interesting possibilities for photos. Love this city and taking photos there.

Taking a walk from Edinburgh Waverley station up the royal mile and onto the Scottish museum.

I used F22, I guess it wasn’t really needed to use such a low aperture but I didn’t want to lose any details of the faces. This is my second attempt at capturing these faces. I shot them the first time at F8 but lost to much of the detail. I hope you thought these faces as amazing as I did. Pure work of art!

I find the art department to have so many possibilities for photos. I might sneak in one day and spend some time taking as many photos as possible. I’ll have to leave that for another post in the future.
