As a professional photographer based in East Lothian, working in Edinburgh and around Scotland, like everyone else, I have had to adapt to a different life during the pandemic, with many of my corproate and event photoshoots either postponed or cancelled. This has enabled me to spend large parts of the summer shooting infrared photography, which I love doing anyway. It has also enabled me to experiment more and try different things against the grain, so to speak. Normally fine art infrared photography works with sunlight and bright skies, however, the other day it was misty in East Lothian and I took my infrared camera to Traprain Law with the family, not really expecting anything, but also curious about how it would capture the mist in infrared. The results were good and with the right settings, the camera still managed to capture the atmospher in a different ethereal way that infrared usually projects. It is easy to forget that infrared cameras are just high dynamic range tools for the photographer and can work in low light, especially for black and white photography. As a newly professional photogrpaher 15 years ago, the need to experiment helped me carve out a niche for commercial clients. I provided ground level urban photos and developed my own style. Nowadays I provide the clients with what they ask for to the best of my ability, but also including some extra infrared photographs, which they always love. I have used infrared photography in the following commissions: weddings, urban, architecture, landscape, portraits and even sport. So, as someone once said to me, look at what everyone is doing and then go and do the opposite.
Hope this helps.
