Long absence from blogging

Before I go on to speak about the job for Stagecoach yesterday, I must apologise for neglecting my blog recently. I was on holiday from the 30th September until the 6th October in Spain (blog post to follow) and since getting back, I have been exceptionally busy so there is plenty posts to come – weddings, albums, commercial jobs, new Macbook Air, new Apple TV, great portraits by David, and amazing Christmas offers about to be launched. Keep visiting as I will be back to daily blog posts this week or next.

Stagecoach launch new Jet bus

Yesterday morning I was photographing a new bus about to go into service for Stagecoach Bluebird. The client chose Castlegate and we met there yesterday on very bright but cold November morning. The lighting on the Town house was superb but the bus was in the shade. I could have used my Quantum Q flash units as the Nikon SB900 was not powerful enough (even at full power and the head zoomed in). However I used multiple exposures (9 separate exposures) to allow me to get good lighting on the bus and the iconic Aberdeen buildings in the background. Using a polarising filter helped minimise the reflections on the bus and also enhanced the blue sky.Fortunately the client was happy and sent a nice email

Hi Neil,

Received the disc today with the pictures on it.

Looks brilliant and everything that has seen them has liked them.

On that note are you free for a photo shoot out at Westhill on Tuesday potentially?

Once I finished photographing the bus, I took a few shots of the Town House in the beautiful winter sunlight, which I think is among the best light for buildings.These have not been processed yet but will be added to the library of shots I am gathering and which will eventually be available for sale as prints or files.
