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.

Look Mommy!

At one of the butchers in the English Market a week ago. This butcher sells great honey collected from bees in Co. Cork! I spotted the joint of meat on the counter as I was leaving.

English Market Seller

There’s a wonderful looking olive and spice stall in the English Market!
Unfortunately it is always mobbed with customers making it difficult to capture a photo of it but I raised my camera into the air and shot this blind.
The original is quite grainy as I used a high ISO of 3200 to compensate for the bad light.
Workflow:

  • Increased the saturation slightly.
  • Unsharp mask with a radius of 5 to bring out the grain more.
  • Duplicate layer and used the Threshold tool to isolate bright parts.
  • Blur the top layer with a radius of 25 pixels.
  • Set the top layer mode to “Soft Light”.
  • Saved a .xcf version, .jpg and a resized jpeg too. I didn’t unsharp mask the resized version.

Hope you find that useful!
