East Cork Camera Group at Midleton Food and Drink Festival

Thomas Tattan at the East Cork Camera Group stand in Midleton yesterday. They were participating in the Midleton Food and Drink Festival and had a great photo gallery in a quiet courtyard off the beaten track. A good crowd were milling about enjoying the photos and making purchases.

We got down early to the festival, before the main crowds and were able to enjoy it at our leisure. More photos throughout the week!

Staring at me

Am I feeling conspicuous or what?

I tried shooting from the hip yesterday with the strap of my camera over my shoulder and my camera in a horizontal position instead of being wrapped around my hand in a vertical orientation.

It proved useful, but I found that:

  1. More of my shots were blurry, perhaps because either the back and forth movement of me walking. I tried shooting in Tv (Shutter Priority mode) and even at 1/200sec and higher there was shake.
  2. It’s great getting more of the surroundings in but I miss the feet.

Child Asleep

A child sleeps while the rest of his family mill about.

Taken in the same market as yesterday’s music posters in Dublin.

Music Posters

Music posters for sale in a market in Dublin a few weeks ago.

Surreal in the market

A woman walking in the English Market is the perfect subject for a bit of surreal experimentation with the GIMP!

Moynihan’s Poultry

A long exposure shot in the English Market in the vicinity of one of the many chicken meat shops.

The camera was set to f/8.0 and placed on top of a wall. In this semi-dark passage the exposure was 1/4 second blurring the passing people nicely but capturing the relatively motionless shop keepers.

Kay O’Connell

Kay O’Connell’s is probably the biggest of the fishmongers in the English Market, Cork.

Another sale

Another sale made at the market during the St Patrick’s Festival in Cork!

Buy a hot dog

I’d call them hot dogs simply because I’m ignorant of the German name used on the sign outside this stall. Whatever they’re called they were delicious!
