It was cloudy here in Ireland for this morning's solar eclipse, but luckily just as it reached its peak, the clouds briefly cleared and I was able to get a few shots out my window. I used live view to capture these, so I wouldn't be looking through the lens at the sun.
To celebrate St. Patricks Day, I thought I’d share something a little different to the inevitable pictures of nothing but shamrocks and leprechauns. So, instead, here are 50 images of Dublin from my Streets of Dublin Project, all with a green theme. These have all been taken over the last few years at various times of the year, and feature the colour green as the main subject. And, yes, there are a few shamrocks and leprechauns in here too! (Well, it is St. Patricks Day)
I’ve been using my iPhone a lot for photography lately and I’m having a lot of fun shooting with it. There’s lots written about iPhone photography and there’s lots of articles giving you lots of tips and dos and don’ts for shooting images with your iPhone. I wanted to share a few from my own experience though. These are just some random tips that I’ve been thinking about over the last little while. Some may seem pretty obvious, and some you may not agree with, but there tips are just things that I’ve personally found. Anyway, without further ado, here are ten tips for getting more from your iPhone photography.
A lot of the time when I'm out photographing, I take pictures that, while not exactly the most fascinating subjects, I still like to take. Sometimes, there's something about an otherwise bland scene that I really like, and it's usually to do with the way the light is falling in the scene. Sometimes people don't get what I see in a scene, and that's ok. Not every photo has to be a masterpiece, and not every photo has to be art gallery worthy. Photography is, of course, all about light, and sometimes I love an image because of the way the light interacts with whatever is in the scene.
I’ve been a big fan of Jay Maisel’s work for a few years now. Even though he’s a very famous photographer I only really came across him a few years ago when he did a class on kelly training. I had seen his photography before but I never knew whose work it was. When seeing him being interviewed, it struck me that the then 80year old artist is not only a great photographer, but also a great philosopher as well, especially about all things photography.
