Recent Shots: A Walk in the Dublin Docklands
I went for a photowalk around the docklands area of Dublin a couple of weeks ago. It was a bright, but cold winter morning and the Docklands is always full of interesting subjects. I walked around for about an hour before the cold got the better of me (it was minus 1 at the time).
I shot entirely on my Nikon D700 with the 28-300mm lens. This is still my favourite combination for this kind of photo excursion as the range covers everything. I like shooting long too, as I love picking out details, and compressing perspective for interesting angles. When you shoot mirrorless for a while too you forget how nice it is to shoot with an optical viewfinder. While I love the advantages of shooting with a small innocuous camera, sometimes it's nice to have the weight, solidness and responsiveness of a DSLR too.
The winter light provided some nice opportunities too. The docklands area of Dublin is interesting in that there are a lot of new buildings, but also plenty of old ones. Light has a way of finding its way through the breaks and you get lovely patches of light. I tried to use this where I could for some interesting composition opportunities.
Anyway, I won't bore you with any more talking and leave you with the rest of the images. Enjoy.
