Light burst at Knocknarea

Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are well. Always have a plan B. Our be ready to improvise one at least. The morning I got this picture I woke up before sunrise and I climbed quickly to the top of this great hill which is just a few minutes from home. Still I got upContinue reading “Light burst at Knocknarea”

Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea at Night

Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are well. I have rediscovered the pleasure of drone photography recently with the weather being nice and flying being safe and easy. This shot though is from before the lockdown, when it was still possible to travel around and driving the 20 km to the lake was just normal.Continue reading “Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea at Night”

Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea at Night

Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea

Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are finding more time for your photography during lockdown.

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”

Stormy day in Sligo

Windy days are quite common here on the Irish West coast. Even though they usually come with rain showers and a dull cloudy sky, it doesn’t mean that you can’t take your camera out and go for a nice landscape photo session. In those days my preference goes to seascapes. Breaking waves are a greatContinue reading “Stormy day in Sligo”

Lough Gill – Sligo

I went there yesterday looking for some “photographic inspiration” and wasn’t disappointed at all! Location: Innisfree isle, Lough Gill, County Sligo, Ireland. What to shoot: Lake Gill offers severalContinue reading “Lough Gill – Sligo”

Lough Gill – Sligo

I have been offered the opportunity to test a landscape preset editing package, created and commercialized by “Sleeklens“, a Danish growing company specialized in products for Lightroom and Photoshop, such as presets and brushes. In particular I tried the Through The Woods bundle, designed especially for landscape photography. I have to say that I wasn’tContinue reading “Lough Gill – Sligo”
