Loch Ness monster sighting in Loch Ness | Not Just Weddings

Who believes Nessie is a myth now, positive sighting of the monster of Loch Ness in Scotland?

The light was low, I couldn’t get as close as I would have liked, moving location would mean missing the shot. The monster was at the far end of my 800mm lens, focus wasn’t steady, I had to hand hold, no time to lose. Keeping it together I managed to rattle off a few frames, all low quality, this is the best of the bunch.

Well, that’s the monster marked of my bucket list of photos to get. How fortunate, it was all unplanned, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Probably my fist and last time, feeling blessed. Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, Scotland's mythical creature, apparently! Photographed at home in the Scottish Highlands.

Aircraft in flight

Photographing aircraft movements | Critical and non-critical phases of flight

Creative Aviation Photography

A compelling and challenging subject that fascinates many photographers both pro and amateur.

Flight Planning:

Preparation is key, gathering required information such as passenger details, load sheets, fuel figures and taking on-board environmental factors, airport factors, weather conditions. The list goes on… Is there anything here worthy to the aviation photographer? Well, support images offer a fuller picture to an aviation loving audience, although not directly involving the aircraft itself, photographing some activity related to an aircraft's journey is bound to offer a bit of added content to interested parties. During flight planning and preparation the aircraft will be static with aircraft ground services doing their thing, perfect for some ground-to-ground aviation photography, the ideal opportunity to show the environment of the airport. 

Aircraft Push Back:

All loaded up and ready to go. All systems are go, cameras at the ready, I love these moments, flight crew have pre-flight checks ticked off and Air Traffic Control have given the clearance for push. With ground support crew on hand to get the aircraft moving, the journey is underway. A long lens with good reach may be required if you are photographing from off-airfield, if you are on an onward journey yourself photography from the departure lounge may be the best option at hand.

Taxiing:

Manoeuvring from the terminal to the runway or vice versa, air-planes use taxiways to ground taxi between locations at an airport. Do pick your spot relative to the time of day and taxi route in use. If you can, consider your choice of background to enhance you aviation photography experience.

Takeoff:

Airborne, moments captured when an aircraft takes off, it leaves the ground and begins to fly, transitioning from moving along the ground to flying in the air, critical phases of flight in the case of aeroplanes means the takeoff run, the takeoff flight path. When it's raining and I'm photographing heavy jet aircraft on a horizontal takeoff I like to be behind the aircraft as it reaches V1, VR and V2. The larger jet engines on commercial aircraft blast a wet runway surface and offer a decent water-spray when the aircraft leaves the ground.
 

 

Cruise:

Bon voyage, it’s wheels up and climb to cruise, the onward journey phase, whether that be on a domestic or oceanic cruise level, after the ascent, aircraft departures take their heading (direction of flight) and head for their destination. Fo me, this is the hardest button-to-button, assuming we're referencing ground-to-air photography, those who are able to photograph aircraft at high altitude and return quality shots will need some quality glass capable of the reach.

Descent:

It’s time to come back down to earth. Vantage points off-airfield at height are ideal, a clear crisp day will enhance the air quality and hopefully offer the clarity as the aircraft descends to a reasonable height.

Final approach:

No more turns, it's straight in from here, aircraft on a descent, their final approach to land, a critical phase of flight usually at a 3-degree constant angle of descent. IMHO, some of the finest ground-to-air photographs are captured during this phase, nothing beats a swirling vortex behind an aircraft, watching the displacement as it trails of into the distance is just awesome. 

Landing:

Aircraft returning to the ground, that physical point of contact, the landing is a critical phase of flight in the case of aeroplanes, the touchdown, including the landing roll are essential phases to capture. Depending on the desired result, you're position is relevant, head-on shooting directly down the runway will be a challenge without a long lens, favourable light always helps if you are positioned midpoint, ideal for capturing the the entire side profile and full length of the aircraft, popular for photographers who love to capture aircraft livery.

Why is the Google Search Console URL inspection tool still unavailable?

Indexing requests are currently disabled!

Strange things happen leading up to the United States Presidential elections. It's been 1 month Google, what is happening inside Search Console? Controlling, has there been a tactical motive I ask myself. Weird how in 2020 webmasters / search engine optimisers inconveniently have the request indexing feature temporarily withdrawn. I wonder if there is a direct correlation with the disablement and US Election 2020? Conspiracy theorists may suggest Google have temporarily pulled the plug on purpose, wilfully rendering the service temporarily unavailable with intentions to bring it back on-line after the 2020 election results are confirmed. In doing such an act, I ask myself…

  • Are there any benefits in this action?
  • Who are the winners & losers, if any?
  • Could SEO's / Webmasters influence election outcomes?

Currently as of 14th October 2020,  if you ask Google to recrawl your URL’S or crawl your latest publications it can’t, or won't, which means priority indexing new content is left to more conventional methods for Google finding new information, normal methods mean slow indexing times.  I’ll be highly suspicious should this feature be turned back on after the 2020 US election result has been confirmed. With so much of the US election being fought online, it wouldn’t surprise me if the push feature stays offline until after the election results have been decided, that would make sense to me. However, Google developers would have you believe it’s temporarily down so they can address complaints and improve, change infrastructure. Personally, I’m not convinced, it sounds to convenient and contrived.

Google’s goal is to help people improve the visibility of their website on Google Search, bizarre how that wasn’t the case in the month leading up to the presidential election. The timing of Googles URL push services being supressed just isn’t sitting well with me, had it been any other to time I wouldn't have raised an eyebrow.

Sea going vessels negotiate their way in the fog creeping over the estuary. Captured late evening from a vantage point on Calton Hill Edinburgh, the view looks over to Fife and beyond, well, maybe not on this occasion due to the weather conditions.

Covid-19 Physical Distancing

  • Documentary photography, street photography, Edinburgh location

The Government couldn’t be clearer, strict guidance now introduced to combat our public's lackadaisical approach to social distancing. Deserted streets and closed shops void of people is how it should/could look, not hordes of people crowding the scene on a sunny weekend. I hope people make a conscious effort to respect this worldwide disease epidemic situation we are in and start to toe the line.

Nationwide Shutdown

Government warnings, many people have been calling for lock-down, for some it's been a long time coming, for others it's been a bit of an issue to take on board. Hopefully the majority of UK citizens will comply, and the combined effort has the desired impact to reduce pressure on an already stretched NHS resource.

Stay safe, stay strong, please stop or slow down the spread of a contagious disease #waaitt

Yeah it's a pretty clear shot, a classic photo of Edinburgh at night from across the water. Trying to compose a more interesting perspective of the city, shot on a clear night with minimal contamination in the atmosphere, night-time brings light, light brings life. Edinburgh vista at night, photographed in August 2018. Fingers were crossed for little or no cloud/fog over the Firth of Forth. Patience paid off, the short trip over the water was all worthwhile.

Christmas Eve flight from Edinburgh Airport https://www.johngilchrist.com/blog/2019/12/christmas-eve-flight-from-edinburgh-airport Qatar Edinburgh - Scottish aviation photographer

International flight departs Scotland on route to Qatar, the Edinburgh Airport Tower sees off the Doha bound A359.

Not as straightforward as it seems, however, I love when a loose plan comes together, for optimum results the super-telephoto had to come out the bag on this occasion. Working on a plan, I made a guesstimate of the aircraft’s trajectory, the flight path was a given, just a matter of considering the aircraft weight, take-off run and the likes. Having watched many of these movements it was nice having it all come together.

Me and my shadow, city scene, kid playing in the streets of Glasgow, Scotland. It was a scorching hot day, lugging the gear around the streets of Glasgow was a bit of a challenge.

Shot details, I could hear this kid before I could see him, I was already facing into the sun for an early shot. I held out; I knew there was a good chance he would pass on my left, which he did. A little more separation between boy and building would have been ideal, it is what it is.

The Kelpie’s Eye View by Danny Callaghan


Image by John Gilchrist

 

From my eye

High in the Sky

Let’s see what I can spy

All the cars and lorries rushing by.

 

Along the M9

From where views of me are so fine

All those cars in a line

Going too fast and risking a fine.

The people milling below

They’re just a constant flow

Looking at me and my pal makes us glow

And at night that is just what we do.  Glow!

 

Their cameras at us are clicking

And some are even flashing

Why?  When the sun is shining

And our manes are sparkling.

Oh!  Goodness what’s that draught

As up my mane it does waft

Oh!  They have opened the door

To let in visitors more.

 

Their heads they raise

To stand and gaze

At my inners they amaze

And are full of praise.

 

Yes for me there’s lots to see

And is it not time you came to see, me!

Calibrated Eye

The Photographer's Logic

Trying to figure it out, an insight into a photographer's mind. This, the initial post of a photographer's logic introduces mixed subjects into the blog. Scenes I’ve found interesting to photograph on my ventures. When it doesn’t work out it gets marked down as experience.

The disciplined eye of a photographer https://www.johngilchrist.com/blog/2019/1/disciplined-eye-of-a-photographer Matthew had a CokeMatthew had a CokeMatty is a litterbug

Looking through the disciplined eye of a photographer you are invited to see what I see; I publish mixed outcomes up here on the blog. Observing subjects from different angles or appreciating the benefits of good light and hopefully putting those factors to good use. Colour placement, texture and leading lines all contribute to the final image.

Rainbows and Pots of Gold

Training the eye to appreciate the light, each new image flattens the learning curve. Continuing the progress is my goal, perfection is that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Knowing that I’ll never find the perfect result is immaterial. The fun times are had looking for the gold; it’s the riches on the way that make all worthwhile. In the end, learning is what matters, that’s where the reward lies.

Phoblography - Shootin’ to share

I love this term, phoblography! So, what is it? The creative outcome that a phoblographer posts to a blog, I guess. Yes, I’ll hold my hand up to phoblographing, I’ll photograph anything that looks like it offers the makings of a good picture, there’s no fun in not sharing. My conclusion, you never know, someone might share value in that image. Bottom line, if it looked appealing at the time, then it seemed logical to push the button. When it doesn’t work out it gets marked down as experience.

Being able to document my endeavours seems like a natural progression to the photography itself. That said, I'm not a writer, my skill set isn't focused on the written content, maybe best just looking at the images.

Air Traffic Controllers - Edinburgh Airport Tower

Backlight photography

Room with a view, at nearly 60 metres tall, this contemporary high-rise of eye-catching design offers wonderful panoramic views, from this lofty perspective the visual control room perched at the top of Edinburgh Airport Tower offers the ideal viewing platform to observe air traffic in every direction.

Lighting

Full sun, the perfect light source for this occasion, with an almost cloudless sky the structure was always going to look good with back lighting, the sun at a lowish angle was an ideal opportunity for the capture.

Modelling

You couldn't coordinate this, the air traffic controllers where an added bonus and it just makes the shot for me more than anything.

Edinburgh Castle Wedding Photographer for Margaret and John

An autumn wedding, no it's not the highlands of Scotland, you'd be forgiven for thinking those rolling green hills and grass lands were in north Scotland, all this green space is captured from a city centre location, yes, unbelievable I know. 

Edinburgh boosts amazing views, Margaret and John chose Edinburgh as their destination wedding. With the ceremony at Edinburgh Castle we opted for some bride and groom time on Calton Hill, with Holyrood Park in the distance, the Salisbury Crags and Arthur's Seat make for an awesome backdrop for their wedding photos.

This was a stunning day with wonderful people and breathtaking location. What more can you ask for? Thank you for having me along and documenting your big day.

Candid photography: Edinburgh street photography

Eagle-eyed street photographers have a foresight, a gift of capturing everyday life in an unposed fashion, capturing the essence of society on the Edinburgh street scene, it is fun to experience and challenging to pull off, but I'm no expert.

Check out my urban, street & citylife in Scotland’s capital. Candid people shots, inner-city & public spaces shot in the central built-up expanses of the new town, old town and extended areas. I often ask myself, why is this style of capturing people, locations and the inhabited environment so interesting? Guess I just like the randomness of seeing folk in their surroundings or finding quirky urban environments void of people themselves. Regardless, you never know who or what’s going to meet you around the next corner, nothing's more interesting than in the moment. When I go into street photographer mode I try to apply selective vision in my image, see how i get on and join me in my chance encounters..

Some photographers don't sleep at night. 

Nightly pursuits, after dark night photography is a neat way to capture Edinburgh's dark side. Planning late evening activities around town is a fun way to appreciate nightlife in the city. Kick those day exposure settings into touch, it's time to adopt some night exposure values for some awesome pics. When the sun goes down and the moon comes up, darkness ensues...
