Nothing to report here. Keep on moving. (Taken in Connemara last Sunday while out for a drive with Rory Wallace.
No useful caption today.
I paid a visit to the quadrangle at NUIG, today. :)
This is the result of total procrastination on my part, I am sorry. While I am here: With the exception of a planned street shoot mid-week I am taking a one week break from infrared photography. I love it…but I need the break. I feel a little like I\’ve fallen into a rut over the […]
I’m still enjoying a break from infrared.
In typical Mark fashion I tried to give the keyboard on my Netbook a thorough cleaning and wound up breaking it somehow – I am not going to speculate on any cause beyond my typical carelessness and proclivity toward dramatically mundane events. Regardless, a replacement keyboard has been ordered for my Netbook (
Danny O’Brien, one of the cornerstones of the boards.ie photographic community, shockingly and unexpectedly passed away today. Danny, you were a gentleman and a true photographer. You will be sorely missed by your friends and family alike.
I couldn’t really think of anything better to put up for today; seeing as I slept until 3pm (:|). Yes there is bellah in the picture. Lots of bellah. The pose came because I was holding the cable release.

No photograph for Sunday April 11, 2010.
I’ve been working out on my contrast. How does it look?
This is the post due two full days ago, whoopsie me. I…well I had one of my “bottom out” days where I pretty much just sat in a chair and stared at a wall for fourteen or sixteen hours. Yeah, sorry. They don’t happen too often.
And here is yesterday’s image, an experiment in some new contrast techniques. Enjoy!
I’ve really neglected my photography and by extension my 365 days project in the past week. You see, I’ve (re)discovered the wonderful magic happy-place known as Diablo 2, and the being able to sit down and mentally switch off for a few hours at a time. Or two days, in my case. Ho hum. All […]
I feel totally frustrated, photographically and personally. Head, meet wall. Wall, meet head. Ah fuck this. I’m going for a walk.
How is my processing?
Waking up each morning (afternoon) is like a fierce struggle to swim up to the surface in a deep pond right as something keeps trying to drag me back down into sleep.
How is my processing? I’ve been trying a new workflow in Photoshop.
More experimentation in my new workflow: This image has a strong asymmetry that I really have to admit I enjoy.
I have one reader who keeps asking for more colour; today is their birthday, and a bad day at that, so here you go. :)
A very Cultured fellow indeed.
Maybe pretty filler, but still…
This has been my Friday so far. I want to sing, but I keep getting distracted.
…but it wound up that I really enjoyed the final finish. Opinions, please?
After three hours, I gave up. Ardfry House, Oranmore, Co. Galway.
Notice the controlled highlights and shadows. Notice the lack of eye-watering tone-mapping. This is a High Dynamic Range photograph.
I feel like fecking George Lucas; here I am replacing a previously uploaded photograph with a completely reprocessed photograph. After I made last night’s upload, I reviewed the source images and found that I could have done so, so much better in its handling. So I took the eight hours needed to perfect it.
Come back tomorrow.
Today finds me on a schedule, so here is another detail shot from Ardfry House to tide you over.
Here is a little slice of that little slice of Ireland, Loughrea: Their library. I plan to go back tomorrow and shoot the rear of the building at length, as it is just simply gorgeous.
I threw the image up as-is last night, but this morning I took the time to sit down and finish with it. There are a whole bunch of little flaws all over the photograph, but they are thankfully not obvious at this small size.
This is looking great, for the record.
It’s my 365; I’ll make and break rules as I please. This photo really hasn’t been molested you know? Stitched, tidied up and all those unpleasant bit swept behind the proverbial curtain. Nothing to see here.
It may be high time to dust off this site. Pixelpost over on bhalash.com threw in the towel.
