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.

More thesis shots

12 05 2011

It has finally come to an end, this whole thesis malarkey. So here’s a few more choices picked at random from it. Again in black and white, coz well, hey it looks cool, right? That and because I can’t find all the colour images from my thesis. They’re around here somewhere – deep in that 100gb+ folder labelled ‘THESIS-IMPORTANT-FINAL’. …Chances are they’ll never be seen again, so enjoy these ones.

Aren’t they lovely? Altogether now: “oooh. aaaah. *gasp*….

John Cooper Clarke

22 09 2010

Thank to Danny Carroll, I got the chance to schmooze backstage with the legendary Johnny Cooper Clarke this week.
After a great show (featuring Evidently Chickentown, Beasley Street, Hire Car, Attack of the Soft Woman…), the man was more than happy to have his picture taken as he was interviewed.

If you don’t know the man, check these out:





More Composites! – Town!

This  is seriously fun.

After a trek into town today I returned home armed not only with the awesomely good new Villagers album, but with about two hundred photographs. Stopping at three locations – the Spire, the GPO (which is right beside it, really) and my haunt The Academy, I blasted quick shots of each venue, like some sort of demented tourist. I got one nice, correct shot of each (to be used as a base) and then lots of unplanned ones – pictures that were too bright, or not bright enough, of mad angles so of nothing but sky, that would be used to overlap it.

I arranged them in CS5 (the trial version) and voila. I don’t want to blow me own trumpet, but I reckon I’m a fucking genius.

Okay. Well maybe not. But they look nice, right? Lovely sky there on O’Connell Street. Don’t see that enough.

This one needs work though:

Got too many of the place itself, and not enough photos of the surrounding areas/foreground. And the sky’s as dull as dishwater. In fact the whole thing is a bit pale and dullish. Quick edit there – everything’s a tad better now!

Yer man on the bike is gas. Lookit ‘im there with his little hat, singing to himself. Good man.

Anyway, as i was saying it’s a learning curve I’m on. I’ll get the hang of this thing yet.
