Galway in the shadows

Went out Friday night to take some night pictures in Galway with some fellow photographers and ended up getting them to model for me 😀 Thanks Alan! I had an idea in my head, but as often happens it was difficult to translate to the camera. Always helps to get a second opinion… and the use of a working tripod! Mine’s kaput! So this is probably the last Galway expedition for a while. Moving up to Dublin this weekend and really looking forward to it. Very excited to be working full-time in Photography and with a team.

Pixels Are Like Cupcakes

Great article here if your in the ‘more pixels equals better quality pictures’ camp. Or simply, if you have any interest in Digital cameras or are planning on buying one soon. This is a must read. It’s certainly given me a greater understanding of megapixels.

1st Scottish Salsa Congress

Salsa legs and a kilt…where else but in the wonderful city of Edinburgh can you find this!

Intense

There were so many fantastic performances by dancers from all over the worldThis performance was posted on youtube and you can see me(or, at least the back of my head and my flash), just in front of the camera taking these shots…ah the beauty of the internet 🙂


This weekend was as much fun as it looks and more. The 1st Scottish Salsa Congress organised by Sagi and the crew from Salsasuave was a huge success, they’ve already set the date for next years Congress.

Little miracle

Welcome to the world baby Cathal! Cathal is the latest addition to this beautiful family of three boys. It was my immense pleasure to meet this little guy, the very day he turned two weeks old. I wanted to put up every shot I took of him, however I will restrain myself here…and flood flickr instead 🙂

These shots are Straight out of the camera. Used natural light from a window and a reflector for fill. A nifty trick I picked up to use a hot-water bottle just beneath the blanket, worked a treat for keeping the little fella happy.

Mornin Neighbour!

Check out what we found in the garden…
Hey, this thing makes nuts! better bring it home to the misses…Now how’s this gonna work…

nope… I could…
not that way…oh ya, now I have it!
ummm…
Ok… one nut left…sod the misses… I’m going in!so it seems the stresses of moving house pays off, with cute and fuzzy new neighbours! 🙂
I’m really enjoying all the wildlife here in this little cottage by the Turlough in Craughwell. The birds are entertaining too and I’m filling the feeder every couple of days. Think Bushy here is helping them with that. These images are a bit noisy, bit early in the morning for me, ISO was at 1600! What the *! I’ll be ready next time 😉
