Nearly there….

At last im nearly there with the new studio. It`s been a while since I posted about this but I`ve been struggling to find time lately. I`ve been saying “nearly there” for the past 6 weeks but now there is light at the end of the tunnel. I won`t go and advertise straight away as I want to build the business slowly and make sure I`m 100% happy with the quality of the product/service I`m providing. Hopefully this time next year I`ll be busy with it 🙂


Work continues….

The new studio is coming along nicely. The weather has been great the past couple of weeks. Since this photo was taken, the roof tiles are on and the electricians have finished the first fix.

Bridge House

When the alarm went off at 5:30 this morning I was sure I had made a mistake in planning a photo shoot at the nearby Blessington Lakes. I needed more sleep. Anyway a deal was a deal so I got myself up and braved the cold, started the car and let the frost thaw from the windows.
We arrived at the lakes at around 6:30 and settled on a location that would give us a good view of the sunrise. After about 15 minutes the grey skies began to glow from the sun rising behind the hills. It was amazing how quickly the light was changing and we knew it would not last very long as there was a lot of cloud around.
I got several shots that I was reasonably happy with and I will post them here over the coming days.
Here is the first;


Here`s the last from the weekends abandoned cottage shoot. Not really sure about it at first but the more I looked at it the more it grew on me. I really liked the pattern from the trusses and I tried to frame the chimney as best as I could through the gaps. I blended a texture layer to give it a bit of lift.

Inside Out

Another from the weekend abandoned cottage shoot. I really liked the textures and colour on this old door and the 50mm lens did a good job of capturing it. The plants behind the door were a bit distracting so I decided to desaturate them to keep the emphasis on the door. I think it works?
