As part of the Creative Photography course we have to complete 3 projects. Hopefully over the coming weeks I will get the opportunity to go out snapping. Here are some shots I took at Donacomper cemetery in Celbridge on my way home today.
Ap. f8 / S. 15 / F. 170mm
Ap. f8 / S. 250 / F. 200mm
Ap. 7.1 / S. 200 / F. 46mm
I love the look of aged metal, hence the theme of this set of images.
We had the first 'shoot' for my Creative Photography course this morning. It painfully required me to drag myself out of bed at 6am and make my way to Glendalough for dawn. I found it a challenging situation, and felt a bit lost to be honest, but saying that I did get a couple of images which I liked.
This is probably my favourite image, I just love how the water flows over the rocks. This is the result of a long exposure, in near darkness. I don't think I've ever done such a long exposure before - but I love the effect and the colour combination / tones of the dark blue water and red in the background hills. Techy Stuff: Ap f8 / S 30" / Focal 18mm
This is probably my second favourite image. Although it seems too dark, I tried to lighten it slightly, but found I prefer it the way it is. There is such a dramatic feel to the colours - the dark, velvety black trees on the burnt umber hill and the rich blue of the sky. Techy stuff: Ap f8 / S 160 / Focal 82mm
I like this shot, although this slant to the foreground doesn't normally work it does in this instance. I would like to maybe lighten the background foliage, but keep the sky as is. Otherwise I'm happy with it. Techy Stuff: Ap. f8 / S 40 / Focal 18mm
This image is unusual particularly in composition, but I quite like the result. I was pleased to capture both the sky and the grain of the stone work without under / overexposing too much. Techy Stuff: Ap f16 / S 6 / Focal 48mm
As with the previous image I'm fairly happy with the exposure on this shot, and I'm pleased with the result of the composition too. Techy Stuff: Ap f8 / S 15 / Focal 18mm
My final image from Glendalough is of the stone crosses in the graveyard. I like the grain on the stone, and the soft focus of the background cross. Techy Stuff: Ap. f11 / S 13 / Focal 42mm
Hello Everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I posted, but we've had visitors for a few weeks and I have a lot to catch up on.
I started a Circle Journal back in April and I got mine back during the week. I was bowled over by the results. Everyone put so much effort in, and shared some lovely stories too. Thanks a million for all your hard work.
