A shark’s deadly grin greeted customers to the fishmongers in the English Market on the day this photo was taken.
Don’t you just love the expression on the fishmonger’s face?
PS. Claire took some great portraits on Saturday!
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:
A woman walking in the English Market is the perfect subject for a bit of surreal experimentation with the GIMP!
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’s is probably the biggest of the fishmongers in the English Market, Cork.
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.
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.
Hope you find that useful!
