Someone was asking me today if I have ever tried landscape photography. I am pretty sure that I take landscape pictures all the time but I tend to revert to portraiture.
I shot this a while ago on one of the few occasions that I remember packing a bag with very specific landscape pictures in mine.

Cloudy with a Chance of Sparks

67/365/2014 - Light into Dark

Light painting is one of those things that I really enjoy doing that pretty much forces me to use my digital camera. I have been concentrating on printing in my darkroom for the last few weeks so it was nice to get out into the evening skies. I met up with a bunch of light painting buddies and we filled the night with sparks and lights.

This is always a fun way to spend a few hours. Everything…

So I am cheating with my 365 a little bit here, I originally took this shot in October 2011 but this is a scan of the print I just made in my darkroom.
I have been printing a lot in the last few days so it was this or another photo of my prints hanging to dry.

A full day of photography was rounded off with a fantastic meal in a friends house.
The large windows of the Georgian house allowed a beautiful soft light to spill into the room so I made all the guests sit for quick portraits.

This is not the composition that I had hoped for but remains interesting…

29/365/2014 – It’s Full of Stars

It had been too long since I stayed deep in the Irish countryside. A clear sky surprised me and I was a little annoyed that I had forgotten my cable release but I done my best with the tools to hand. I just held my finger on the button for 62 seconds.

I will make an effort to do this again real soon.

I recently got to tag along on a a vintage fashion shoot. Ania has an impressive array of vintage clothes and Inge brought some great ideas to the shoot and was a director as much as a photographer. I mostly  stood in the background and watched as Ania and Inge done their thing, both moving like experienced pro’s.

Eventually I stared to get a feel for the shoot and ran a couple of rolls of film…

I had the great pleasure of co-hosting a “Build it - Shoot it - pinhole photography workshop” at the Smena Photographic Society in Dublin.
We had 14 participants and we had mixed results but that is one of the joys of pinhole.
This is my one shot from the evening of the imaginative still life that was arranged. It was nice to shoot with my tin can again, it had been a while.
