Photography News and Inspiration – August 1st Edition

Featured Image: “Postman by the wall” – Nikon D700

It’s a lovely fresh Autumn day here in Ireland, as the first official day of my favourite season of the year begins. I didn’t do a roundup post last week as I hadn’t come across that much of note. This week, there’s a few interesting news and website tidbits and I’ve some great inspiration sites to follow.

I’ve had a busy and somewhat surprising…

Some Great Photography Material on iTunes U

Some Great Photography Material on iTunes U

I’m always on the look out for great photographic learning material. I think it’s one of those subjects where you never stop learning, and even if you are happy with your technical skills, it’s always good to hear from other photographers and learn how various different people have progressed the art in their own way. Recently, I began thinking that I would like to brush up on photographic…

The Biggest Influence on My Photography

I’ve been sorting through my photo library over the last little while in what has become a mammoth project, but I’m getting through it. It’s been a very interesting experience. Apart from the sheer work involved it’s been a valuable experience looking back over my body of work from the last few years. It’s interesting to see how my style has evolved over the years, both in terms of technique and…

Aperture’s Demise

About an hour after I published last weeks post, the news broke that Apple was discontinuing Aperture. For those of you who’ve followed my work for…

Barna, Co. Galway, by iPhone

Barna, Co. Galway, by iPhone

I got to spend a night in the beautiful little village of Barna, which is just outside Galway city on the way to Connemara. It was a beautiful evening and the sun was going down over the picturesque town and it’s harbour. While I wasn’t there specifically to take pictures, I did of course have a camera with me. My Fuji X-E1 was in my bag and I took it out to go and get some pictures of the…

Colour in Composition

New Blog Post: Colour in Composition

I recently read a post on a popular photography blog talking about how you should learn to ignore colour to be a better photographer. They weren’t talking about just black and white images either, they were talking about all photography. The idea that was put forward (and it’s not a new one) is that photography is primarily about light and shade and that colour is just a distraction. It was even…

Street Shooting from the Hip - Tips for making use of your Camera’s Features

One of the types of street shooting that I like to do is to walk along with my camera on a busy street and pick out interesting people form the crowd. I’ll keep my camera on its strap around my waist and “shoot from the hip” so as not to draw too much attention. It’s a tricky skill to master at first but once you get the hang of it, it can be a lot of fun and get you some great shots. There are…

Trying to get control of my library

I’m not the most organised person when it comes to my photo library. In fact, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m incredibly disorganised. My previous attempt to get it under control went nowhere, so this week, I decided to give it another go.

I had recently consolidated all my various Lightroom libraries into one big library, which seemed like a good idea at the time. On the one hand, it’s good…

Random Acts of Photography: Streets of Dublin Edition

If you’ve been following this blog for a while now, you’ve probably already heard me going on about my “Streets of Dublin” project. It’s basically, a little photography project I started last year cataloguing life on the streets of Dublin. I found that I was taking a lot of pictures of Dublin and I wanted to showcase them, so I started a Tumblr blog and a Facebook pageand began posting one or two…

Photographic Ideology and The Accidental Street Photographer

New Blog Post: Photographic Ideology and The Accidental Street Photographer

Lately I’ve been identified by several people as a “Street Photographer”. This kind of took me by surprise, as it’s not something that I ever really considered myself to be until recently. I certainly never set out to be a street photographer. I started heading out on photo walks across the city as a way of practising my craft and it kind of snowballed from there. The more I went out with my…
