'There is always a photo'
There is. How often have I gone on location for a shoot and someone has said,
'There's not much to see I'm afraid.'
I have just returned from The Black Isle, in the North of Scotland to visit my elderly mum.
It's November not a month I would choose to spend in Scotland and as anticipated the
weather was dreary, cold, windy and wet.
A long drive to and from the hospital where mum was being looked after was very grey and did nothing for my spirits.
I even Tweeted this photo with the caption...
One shade of grey...
After 4 days of this with my blog post deadline looming I took my own advice, and on the way to the airport I took some photos. My theme?
I didn't have my Canon 5D mark III DSLR, so I used my Smart phone (a Samsung S5) which has an impressive camera.
On the flight home, I edited my shots with the phones software and came up with this set of pictures.
This set of photos had a little adjustment to brightness and contrast and in some the colour was desaturated but that was it on the editing front.
It proved to be an enjoyable couple of hours, despite the weather.
So, set yourself a challenge and come up with a set of shots based around a theme, and make this your mantra-
Look all around.
Found photographing in rain or shine for magazines and the like.
