It’s been a very busy week for me and in between post-processing images from a couple of recent client shoots, my talk at the Lonely Planet National Travel Day and my Gulf Photo Plus blue hour workshop yesterday, I haven’t had much time to shoot images for myself. I guess this is that part about photography that people who have been in the business for a long time warn you about – you’re only shooting about 10% of your time, while the rest is spent on marketing. Not that I’m complaining, it’s been a great week and I’m really grateful to all of you who made your way at one of these events!
Knowing that the usual Dubai October fog is just about here, I went to look for some new vantage points and my friend Bjoern was kind enough to introduce me to a location I haven’t been before. The thick fog we were waiting for never materialized, but I did get this shot which I was fairly happy with. It did need a lot of post-processing to bring out the details and if you roll-over the image to see the original you’ll see what I mean. Unfortunately the image here on the blog is slightly smaller than usual as I had to crop it 4×5, rather than the usual 2×3 as the photograph is a stitch of three landscape images taken with my 24mm tilt-shift lens.
