Here’s a photo from Malahide today. Will have to revisit this site at a higher tide – there was nothing going on, but dead crabs being tossed about by crows.

Only one pic on show tonight:

 

Reason? I had only one song to shoot through, a limited space in the pit and strobing lights. Suffice to say it was practically an entire write off of a night. I even bumped my head on the car door at the end of the day…

Lets keep this one short…





Wicklow – Day One

10 06 2011

 

Ah, the countryside. The perfect place for some landscape shots given, y’know, all the land and scape and stuff. Unfortunately it pissed rain like something out of the bible. Big drops that covered half the dashboard of my car. So, most of the day was spent in the car eating strawberries and listening to Adam & Joe with Siobhan, which was great, but when you’d specifically planned to take pictures that day, it felt a tad disheartening.

I did get to use my extremely cheap new, no-brand ND 8 filters and new circular polariser though. Turns out you do get what you pay for… But they were usuable. Could’ve spent about 90 on the lot and instead paid only 21 quid on the cheapo ones. They did the job, but were not exactly 4-stop filters. And they just totally killed the contrast in every image too.

The above picture was taken on Military Road (or thereabouts, I’m a bit rubbish with directions/locations). It’s a 2.5 second exposure at f32 with two 8nd filters and a 4nd grad nd filter too. It was windy as feck and spitting rain too, so it’s been through photoshop to clean it up. If you click it you can see it larger over on Flickr.

Here’s another one – it’s Lough Tay:

That’s an ELEVEN image composite right there. Click to see it slightly larger. Flickr can’t really handle its awesomeness…

Pity it’s a tad dull. But I shall be returning sometime soon, hopefully at dusk (or if I’m feeling adventurous, dawn – which is like 4:20 or something ridiculous these days)





The Tallest Man On Earth

A lying bastard he may be (he’s no more that 5’6″, I reckon), but Kristian is a fine entertainer. So good in fact that he moved a couple in the front row to spend the entire first three songs liplocked. It was only himself and the guitar, strutting around the stage for the most part of the night, which could have been a disaster, visually, had he not been so energetic. Anyway, he was bopping away and here are some of the pictures I gotted:

 

Oh and here’s his sister. She was in the support band, but I didn’t catch their name, but they were good. I like this shot too!
