Working The Scene As They Say

I haven’t been out photographing around town for a long while I’m almost completely out of practice so when an opportunity did finally come around it was around the chance to meet my friend Colin to see the Photography: A Victorian Sensation exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland.

I first hit the Royal Mile to get some practice in to ‘break the ice’ …

After seeing the exhibition – which was pretty cool actually, lots of very nice salt prints, Daguerrotypes, wet plates and cameras – and as we were getting ready to head off on our separate ways we stumbled across what looked like a massive fire by the Train Station; something photographically exciting to chew on.

… after that I stumbled home …

You can clearly see I hadn’t used the Horizont for a while because my bloody fingers were in the frame in more than usual, I also went a little crazy photographing as much as possible trying to figure out how you ‘work a scene’.

Hopefully I won’t leave it so long to go out photographing next time.
