Hurling

I went to the hurling in St Columb Major for the first time yesterday, this is quite surprising as I’ve lived locally for my whole life and hadn’t witnessed it until this year. I dragged a friend of mine along with me and took my camera to try and get some photos. When I was there I came across someone who was on my old course which was a nice surprise and I chatted to him for a while. For more information on the hurling follow this link.

Constantine Bay.

I went down to Constantine yesterday to sort some things out and also went for a walk in the sand dunes to take some photos. I had forgotten that I had my camera set on JPEG format instead of RAW. Safe to say I won’t be doing that again, the photos looked fine on the camera screen but as I wanted to do some post processing to them, the difference was massively noticeable. It makes me wonder how I used to get by with shooting in JPEG in the first place.

*Insert witty, non generic title here*

Okay, so i’m in a really talkative/ typing mood. Which Is strange… I think it might be because I have been watching videos on youtube, and seeing how relatively simple ideas can gain such massive audiences, the difference is with those videos is that they get so many views because they are either extremely well made, or a fresh new idea. In most cases both. So anyway, what I am planning to do is; work, buy a good camera with a good HD filming mode (Hopefully a Canon 7D) and a decent quality prime lens (Maybe about 24mm) and make some videos… Not going to give too much away but I do have several ideas and am very keen to try them out.

Anyway, it’s all about exposure and if I can make consistently good videos then there should be an audience.

It’s one thing talking about it, but what really matters is actually doing it.

I’ve been in contact with several people, Including James Davis, A sponsored Trials Biker. Toby Donachie, A professional surfer. Josh Coombes, A sponsored windsurfer. And Holly Donnelly, a Roxy Surf teamrider.

And of course Ben Bennett, the surfer who has featured in many of my shots, when he comes back from his four month trip in Indonesia.

I’m feeling confident, lets see how things work out.

Lost and Found

I’ve been looking through my hard drive and have found some images which I believe should have seen the light of day, but unfortunately haven’t, i’m changing this now by putting up a post with these shots. I’m sure i’ll find more so keep checking back for updates.

Home.

I’ve been home a few times whilst on my course at UCF and so I have grasped those opportunities to expand my portfolio of surfing images with my good friend Ben Bennett. This image bellow was taken at Harlyn Bay from the cliff, I have used this angle many times before but have always struggled to get the house in the background. As soon as I had shot this sequence, I knew it was going to be a good one, only did a slight bit of tweaking in Camera RAW.

And another shot of Ben, this time at a slightly more secret location. At this time of year the sun never gets too high in the sky so the light throughout the majority of the day can make for some good images. I have noticed more and more people now shooting from a similar angle as me at this spot recently, I get the feeling i’m going to have to mix things up a bit to keep my images fresh for the mags.

Faltown.

Been at Falmouth now for about a month. Loving it, in short. Whilst it isn’t actually far from where I live it is still extremely different to what I am used too back home and in Constantine.

Just a few shots of what has been going on.
