Random Acts of Photography: New York City Edition

My most recent trip to New York City didn’t exactly go according to plan. My wife and I had set out to spend two weeks in the city last September, but things started to go wrong before we even got there. The first clue should have been when my wife got bronchitis just before we were about to fly. However, suitably drugged and on the mend we decided to go anyway. That turned out to be a bad idea.

36 Hours in Paris, A Photographic E-Book by Thomas Fitzgerald

36 Hours in Paris, A Photographic E-Book by Thomas Fitzgerald - Now available

Just before Christmas I got to spend a little time in Paris and I used that time to get some travel shots of the city. I’ve been wanting to start writing more about my travels and turn my travel photography and experiences into books, and so I thought that this was a good opportunity! I started putting the book together in January and I’ve been working on it ever since.

It’s a purely photography…

Photo of the Day: Angry Seagulls

Nikon D90 – 18-200mm Nikon Lens | To buy a Print click here | To licence this image click here

I took this photo a few years ago (2007) when on a visit to the city of Galway in the west of Ireland. There is a large and angry river that runs through the city (the River Corrib) and there’s a lovely river walk that runs along it. I was walking up that way one day trying out my then new 18-200mm…

A Sneak Peek at Quick Lux for Lightroom

Here’s a sneak peek at my soon to be released second set of Lightroom Presets, “Quick Lux”. Like “Film Candy”, Quick Lux is a Lightroom version of one of my Aperture sets. Also, like the Film Candy, this won’t be a straight port, as the differences in the two applications make it very difficult to get the same results. Instead, Quick Lux for Lightroom will be based on the same ideals as the…

Random Acts of Photography: Colour & Texture, Light & Shade

Random Acts of Photography: Colour & Texture, Light & Shade Edition

Walking through Dublin when the light is good (it does happen!) is always a feast for the artistic minded eye. Whether it is the colours of the city, the greens of Stephen’s green, or the glowing bronze of Molly Malone, or it’s the textures of the buildings, there’s always something to see. This time of the year, when the sun is out, it’s still fairly low, so there are some great long shadows too.

Thursday Inspiration Update

I’ve been pretty much stuck at home for the last two weeks doing battle with a particularly nasty sinus infection. While I did mange to get out last week, I’m still a little under the weather. Anyway, the plus side is that I’ve been catching up on some reading, and I’ve come across some things that you might find interesting.

The first is Lumu. Lumu is a very interesting looking, kickstarter…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Ireland

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

It’s our national holiday today here in Ireland, and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patricks Day from a somewhat cloudy Dublin. It never ceases to amaze me that our little country can spur celebrations all over the world. Wherever you are I wish you all the best!
