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…

Random Acts of Photography - Summer Flowers Edition

Random Acts of Photography – Summer Flowers Edition

It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of my “Random Acts of Photography” posts. 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…

A Short Film about Dublin, My Home City

A Short Film about Dublin, My Home City - Behind the scenes and details of the edit

Over the years I’ve accumulated quite a bit of footage of Dublin City and I wanted to do something with it so I began putting this little video together a while ago. I’ve been playing with the edit on and off for months, spending few hours here and there tweaking. There is footage spanning the last 5 years or so, shot on lots of different cameras and It’s not in any way meant to be a…
