Inspired by a recent visit to the most haunted house in Ireland; Loftus Hall, I created this image of Lady Anne; the ghostly resident of the tapestry room.
Along with an incredibly entertaining and spooky tour of the house visitors can also admire the amazing work of locally based photographer, Steve Meyler.
His 66 framed monochrome photographs of the house (shot in a style based on his experience as an architectural and crime scene photographer) can be found here or on his website www.stevemeyler.com.
Loftus Hall, Hook Head, New Ross, Co. Wexford is well worth a visit, especially if you’re trying to entertain older children and teenagers on a rainy holiday. It is recommended though that you book in advance as the tours are very popular.
David Kennedy photography organised a fun, collaborative photo shoot last Saturday in Virginia, Co. Cavan.
Apart from being valuable experience for building portfolios for both the models and photographers alike; photo shoots organised amongst friends are guaranteed great fun.
So find a photographer who organises photoshoots or even better – go organise one yourself, we spent just over three hours making our way from one end of the town the other (including a coffee break in the delightful Mason’s Apron).
Photoshoots the most fun you can have (legally) with two models and a suitcase.
Photography is all about light. But what does that mean?
How do we as photographers; light chasers extraordinaire, harness the power of light?
The best instructor, I’ve found, is natural light itself.
There is nothing more illuminating than paying witness to a sunrise; training your eyes on golden shafts of light as they meet, stop then creep over black lumps revealing fronds of various greens clinging to rocks as equally varied in colour.
A sunrise is a lesson in light, form and shadow. Take the time to witness one, even record it for future reference; a sound investment for improving your photography (even studio work).
