We were in the Western Isles recently on holiday. It’s clearly not the street photography centre of the universe but there are some great opportunities for capturing people on holiday. The image above is of people watching planes land on the Beach at Barra airport. It was amazing to see planes landing on the sand and the sight attracts a crowd.
The cattle shows and Highland games across the Outer Hebrides also provide great chances for photographing people. However having missed these events, most of the photos I took were landscapes. Eg the image below of Castlebay, Barra.
It was actually a nice change to shoot scenery. I suppose ultimately it doesn’t really matter what label you put on an image. The principles are all pretty much the same; lighting, composition and timing. Here’s another couple of favourites.
