Fine Art Photography for 2014 by admin

Well with the New Year upon us, I've been thinking about how I want to process my work in 2014.  I will be looking to further develop my Landscape work, but as I move into the Year I look to definately work towards developing more towards a Fine Art perspective.  

With this in mind, I am working on developing a new page on this site, and will be creating a gallery of images with painterly-like effects.  I hope eventually to be able to offer prints to those interested.  Here are a few images for my collection, just to whet your appetite.

Titanic Christmas by admin

It's hard to believe that it's been a month or so since I last updated my blog.   This past month has been hectic with work and also studies.  I'm studying on 3 fronts at the moment (mad, yes, I know!)  So its been hard to get the time to get out and take photographs, as I'd like to.  

But last night, on my way back through Belfast, as I was crossing the flyover on the M3, I spotted the Titanic building in all its glory, like a glistening like a crown on the banks of the Lagan and so I decided to go and investigate as I had my camera gear with me.

 

Titanic Christmas

 

There was an lamp post smack in the middle of my view, so this meant I would have to get in closer and use my wide angle lens.  So I've used the Tokina 11-16mm lens.  This really is a smashing lens.. and fantastic value at about half the price of the Nikon  version.

 

I actually love the distortion around the edge of the image.  I think it draws the focus very definately towards the subject.

 

The way that the "Titanic" was filled with Christmas lights really helped set the image off.

 

At one point a PSNI landrover cruised past me and sat at the nearby traffic lights watching me to make sure I was up to no good... or is that the other way around?!   I always find its best to be straight-forward about how and what you do.

 

Anyway, have a Titanic Christmas in case I don't to say it nearer the time!!
