Harmonica Busker

Niall O’Carroll playing the harmonica in Emmett Place, probably a couple of years ago. I posted a more recent photo of him when he was playing in Blackrock village earlier this month.

Cork Street Photography June Photowalk

Some photos I took in Cork City yesterday as part of the June Photowalk with Cork Street Photography “in the Style of Garry Winogrand”.

I only used a wide angle lens all day, and in processing I mostly avoided cropping the photos, although I did use the lens correction tool in Lightroom that straightens photos and crops a small portion of the image. Only two images have been cropped extensively, the one above in the bus, and the one of the woman sitting on a block smoking a cigarette.

I hardly ever composed a shot by eye, preferring to shoot from the hip, or in landscape mode from about shoulder height. I messed up framing when at 28mm, but at 17mm got more shots than I missed. Back button focus worked fairly well. I’d focus on the ground in front of me. A couple of shots were blurry but I was too far from the subject anyway, so no loss.

I used to shoot lots of wide angle street photos, and this got me back into it and reminded me of how hard it is!
