Mediterranean Fishing Boat at Sunset – Tunisia

iso 100 | f22 | 160 sec | 11 mm

A trip to Tunisia in 2012 provided me with the perfect opportunity to experiment with long exposures using some new neutral density filters I had bought a few weeks previously. The photograph above was taken using a 10 stop filter which allowed me to achieve a very long shutter speed of 160 seconds. To put this into perspective, this type of filter cuts the light entering the lens to 1/1000th of what it would be Read more…

Reflections in a Lake at Dawn – Ireland

The Eiffel Tower is a difficult subject to get an original shot of so I decided to try something different by focusing on the bottom half of the tower while using the golden statues at the Palais Chaillot as foreground interest.

Welcome to the first post on my new photography blog. I though it would be appropriate to start off by featuring a photograph of the most iconic landmark in my home town of Dublin: The Ha’penny Bridge.

This photograph was taken on a cold January Sunday morning while the sun was just below the horizon to the west. I was extremely lucky with the weather conditions on this particular morning. Not only was Read more…
