A city is made up of all sorts of people.
If you have a camera, run a photoblog or you’re in town, there will be a meet up tomorrow in Cork!
Everyone will gather in front of the Clarion Hotel at 2pm tomorrow where we’ll plan our photographic assault on the city!
It’s also the Jazz Weekend here in Cork so there’ll be plenty of interesting subjects to shoot!
For more info, and a map, look at this Upcoming.org page, or Ryan’s Blog!
See you there!

Chocolate through the glass
Shot this one by holding a magnifying glass up above a bar of Fry’s Chocolate. I will be enjoying said bar of chocolate at lunch. Yum.

Links Of The Day
- Huge Pixel Poster – via Digg where there are more comments about this sort of thing. “Pixel Art is form of digital art, created on the computer through the use of raster graphics software, where images are edited on the pixel level. Graphics in most old computer and video games or even in Game Boy games are considered pixel art.”
- How to dodge & burn like a pro? – I use the soft light layer approach myself.
- Stripping Raw Naked – interview with the Apple Aperture product manager, Joe Schorr. Of course he’d tell you that it’s aimed at professionals! Meanwhile, Paul says that Aperture will not pose a challenge to Photoshop as it’s missing too many features. I’m sticking with the GIMP for the time being.
- Lumilux – nice photoblog, I really like his “shape” photos. Big expanses of single colours broken up by one or two objects.
- Has everything already had its picture taken? No, but does it matter? To the Lazy Photographer yes, “The idea that you don’t need to take photographs anymore because someone will take the picture for you and put it on flickr.”
- 2 Minute Photoshop Tricks
- Shooting Great Pictures of the Fall Foliage – look for detail, look for light. The colours of the trees around now are amazing!
- How to Get Traffic to Your Photoblog – a lot of the advice applies to regular blogs and websites too!
- Ideal ISO setting for the 20D? – ISO200 was suggested by numerous posters to this forum but it’s not as simple as that…
- Do you make your photos lie?
Top of Patricks Street, go across the bridge and look between the traffic lights.. Takes me bloody ages to walk around town! 🙂
English Market Panorama
We were going to have lunch in the upper-level restaurant but it was jammed tight with people already. There were queues of people 5 or 6 deep waiting on tables or a high stool. It might be worth waiting sometime and spending an hour eating and snapping shots..
This is 4 horizontal shots stitched together I think.
At the top of Patricks Street I noticed a rainbow over the city.
