Mylo

Mylo, a yorkie that was taken from the CSPCA Animal’s Home in Mahon, Cork. He’s looking a lot healthier than he was when he was adopted and left the care of the CSPCA. I was lucky to get this shot as he’s such an excitable dog he was jumping up and down, wagging his tail […]

Seafood at El Rincon del Chirri SL

Very recently we spent almost 2 weeks in the Spanish town of El Puerto de Santa María. We stayed in a friend’s apartment and it was a really nice break away from the bad news and rush of life back in Ireland. Unfortunately we brought the rain with us but that didn’t dampen our spirits! […]

Adventures adding a new lens to Aftershot Pro

Bibble 5 and Aftershot Pro have a useful lens correction function that will fix the distortion created by a camera lens when a photo is taken. You won’t even recognise the distortion unless you’re looking for it but quite often it can look like straight lines are slightly bent or bulging. The animated gif above […]

Viking Longboat

Sólfar, The Sun Voyager

This is a metal statue in Reykjavík of what looks like a Viking longboat but according to the Wikipedia page is in fact a “dreamboat”. It is a common misunderstanding that Sun Voyager is a Viking ship. It is quite understandable that many tourists think like this when travelling in Iceland, the land of the […]

Aftershot Pro B&W Workflow

Martin, over at Photoakademie.eu created a workflow video showing how a photo was processed and eventually turned into a black and white image using Aftershot Pro. Coming from a GIMP background I used layers and layer masks but never used adjustment layers to keep changes separate. Quite an eye opener for me! Plus another demonstration […]
