I paid a visit to Glasgow last week and although the weather was pretty awful some of the time, I was able to get some good urban photography during my time there. As a professional photographer specialising in corporate and fine art photography in Scotland, it is often forgotten that I started my professional career selling landscape and urban photos to media and PR companies. I love Glasgow, especially the River Clyde and it’s bridges, particulalry the Arc Bridge, otherwise affectionately known as the Squinty Bridge by the locals. Whilst I had to suffer a few heavy showers, there were also a couple of breaks in the weather and I was able to get some decent urban photographs with my fish-eye lens and also to add to my collection of infrared photos for my book on Infrared photography in Scotland. Bridges are always great to photograph, as they are landmarks and you can get arty with the angles and the perpective. Fish eye lenses will give you some whacky converging vericles and whilst it is often possible to correct these with the appropriate software, I tend to leave the photos as they are, as I like the weirdness of it all. In some case, you are able to keep a straight horizon and the photo does not look strange at all, it just depends on your intention. there was also an opportunity to re-visit my obesssion with puddle photography – you are nearly always going to have this option in Glasow to be honest. A few of the photos were taken at alow angle to depict the reflections on the puddles. Anyway, let me know what you think. this is the first of many visits in the coming months to that great city.
