Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are well. Last week I took advantage of one night with clear sky to shoot the stars.

The Milky Way over Lough Gill – Sligo

Hello fellow photographers! This time I tried my hand at one of the most fascinating fields in photography, in my opinion. It is also a field that requires a lot of commitment and experience, while I’m just a rookie. Night photography has the charm of bringing into view the unseen, it allows to capture throughContinue reading “The Milky Way over Lough Gill – Sligo”

Poulnabrone Dolmen – Ireland

  Hi fellow photographers! It has been difficult to find the time to write any posts in the past month; I have preferred to spend most of the spare time doing what I like most, which is travelling all around Ireland, exploring its hidden gems, doing a lot of spot scouting, combining photography with hikingContinue reading “Poulnabrone Dolmen – Ireland”

Night Lights over Samuel Beckett Bridge

After a long winter hibernation it’s time to get the gear out and start photographing (and sharing) again! The goal is to do as much spot hunting as possible, take some good pictures, and share the best hints and suggestions about photographic opportunities across Ireland. Be it street life, landscape or seascape photography, the “EmeraldContinue reading “Night Lights over Samuel Beckett Bridge”

Night in Chinatown – New York

Chinatown has been our “nest” during the days we spent in New York last month. How not to pay homage to this colorful and lively niche in Manhattan? Here I share a picture I took during one of my early morning strolls, when I was heading towards the Brooklyn Bridge, but couldn’t resist to theContinue reading “Night in Chinatown – New York”

They have many advantages: there are plenty, so you can choose your preferred, they are always there, so you don’t risk to miss the moment, they are often crowded with all sort of people coming and going, soContinue reading “Night shots!

Night shots! Friedrichstrasse #2

Here it is another night shot you can easily take in Berlin! Same location and same cold winter as before (blurred things you see in the water are ice blocks moving with the stream): the Friedrichstrasse station. From the rear end of the platform you can spot a nice sight of the Sprea encircled with buildingsContinue reading “Night shots! Friedrichstrasse #2”

Night shots! Friedrichstrasse #1

Berlin is not New York but you can easily perform some night shooting with a lot of details, colours, crowded roads and traffic lights. Just consider that this kind of pictures looks more interesting if you can reach a different point of view on the situation. Usually shooting from an elevated structure makes the job.Continue reading “Night shots! Friedrichstrasse #1”
