Tommy McNulty

8 08 2011

I recently met up to photograph musician Tommy McNulty in Temple Bar. Having found my 50mm (It had run away on me) I took it along and used it for the first time in far too long. I also brought the strobes with me, as I am now wont to do and worked as best I could with some very changeable lighting conditions. I’m happy with the shots, they’re fit for their purpose (for posters – hence al the ‘white space’), but Tommy should be appearing on Deadl.ie again soon, albeit in more fun shots.

 

We also gave levitation a go. It was a bit freaky.

The Tallest Man On Earth

4 06 2011

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!

PhotoShoot – Shaun

26 05 2011

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting Shaun Dunne and the Talking Shop Ensemble members Aisling, Oonagh and Lisa, around Pearse Street and Trinity’s campus. The photos will be used in the upcoming Fringe festival program, but here they are before anyone else sees ’em. So, here’s Shaun in all his Technicolor glory. Talking Shop Ensemble should be up tomorrow!

Oh, and see that above pic, yeah? That’s the culmination of reading Strobist for about a year. Everything in the picture went just as I had visualized it. Quids in! I know people bad mouth it, and yes he’s probably the reason flashguns are over-priced these days, but there’s lots to be learnt from that blog. He doesn’t mention anything about buses mind, that was my own personal genius.

Enough wiffle-waffle, here’s a few more.

Before they rang in the new year to a packed house in Whelans, I caught up with Northern Ireland’s greatest instrumental band for a brief photo shoot. So here are: And So I Watch You From Afar in all their high-definition glory.

 





Lower Dens, Vicar Street, 22/11/2010

23 11 2010

While this post should be called ‘Beach House, Vicar Street’, lack of lights during their performance meant that I have feck all pictures of worth for this site. That said, support act Lower Dens were bathed in a lovely abundance of light. I only wish I’d paid more attention to them and taken more pictures. Ah well.

 

And here’s the Beach House one’s for comparison:
