Random Acts of Photography - Street Photography Update Edition

It’s a beautiful monday morning here in Dublin today, and to get the week started it’s time for another edition of Random Acts of Photography. I’ve been doing a lot of Street Photography recently, or photography that could roughly be called street photography. Either way, the photos have been piling up, and so I thought I’d share a few of my recent ones….at random of course!

These were shot on a…

Street Photography Pairs with the Fuji X-E1

Street Photography Pairs with the Fuji X-E1

I was out shooting some street photography earlier today with my trusty little Fuji X-E1 and I noticed that I had taken a lot of portrait orientation shots. As I was sorting through the shots I noticed that all the vertical images paired up nicely, so I thought I’d do a set of paired images, just for the fun of it. All of these were taken around the streets of Dublin city, using a Fujifilm X-E1…

Introducing Steely Blue for Lightroom

I’m delighted to announce that my latest set of Lightroom Presets, “Steely Blue” for Lightroom is now available. “Steely Blue” is a set of presets for Lightroom designed to bring out detail and enhance the colours in an image without creating a style that looks too much like a special effect. The look also enhances the dynamic range of the picture to which it is applied, by compressing the…

The Sony NEX–7, A Retrospective Review

For a brief period the NEX–7 was Sony’s flagship mirrorless offering, until the A7 series came out. I’ve had the NEX–7 for over a year and the experience as been both maddeningly frustrating and incredibly wonderful. The NEX–7 is a camera that produces amazingly detailed, rich and vibrant images, yet it has a terribly designed operating system that is at times both perplexing and frustrating.

More Examples of Landscape Gold for Lightroom in Action

Just some quick preset news. When I launched Landscape Gold for Lightroom last week, I didn’t expect that it would become so popular. In the space of a week it has become my most popular set of presets and I’m blown away by the response. So I want to give a big thanks to everyone who bought the set.

I had created a collection full of images to use as samples and I only posted some of them for the…

As it’s a lovely bank holiday weekend here in Dublin, I thought I’d revive the tradition, and hopefully it will be back as a more regular feature. For those who are new to this blog, Random Acts is a seriesI used to do, which was basically a set of images, seemingly random, but usually connected by some subject or…
