I was in Edinburgh the other night catching up with some friends and taking some photographs. Edinburgh was in photogenic mood, as it usually is, and surprisingly for the beginning of August it wasn’t too busy and so I didn’t develop my normal “festival rage”.
Something I discovered, thanks to one of my friends, was my camera’s long exposure setting. With the help of his mini-tripod I was able to take both some really crisp, clear night-time shots and some blurry time-delayed ones. Check out the ones I uploaded.
Talking of festival rage, I am bracing myself for a severe dose of it in a week’s time, when I spend five days in Edinburgh for my new job’s induction. No doubt I will blog about why I hate the Edinburgh Festival in due course.
