Eleven Years Apart

The photos above were shot eleven years apart. The first was shot in 2004 while the second was shot only a few weeks ago in early February, 2015. You may recognise the man. He sells newspapers in the St. Augustine’s Church, on the corner of Washington Street and Grand Parade. I presented him with a print of both photos and I think he was quite taken with them. Unfortunately I didn’t get his name while I talked with him as a customer came along but I’ll ask him next time!

Light Trails Through The Grand Parade

Light Trails Through The Grand Parade

The Grand Parade last night while I was out with Blarney Photography Club in Cork.

The shot is a 25 second exposure. For 20 seconds I exposed normally with the lens at it’s widest, but for the last 5 seconds I slowly zoomed from 17mm to 40mm to get the light trail effect.

Lean on the Wall

Lean on the Wall

Just outside the English Market, Grand Parade, Cork.

Street photography is hard. It’s difficult to shoot candid photos of people on the street and get a picture in focus that is pin sharp.

To aid me in that task I used the auto ISO setting on my camera, with a minimum shutter speed of an excessively fast 1/250 sec and I kept the aperture at f/8 which gives a greater depth of field at the expense of light entering the lens.
That means more of the photo is in focus, even if my lens focuses on the wrong subject, but the higher ISO makes the photo noisier. It certainly paid off when I shot from the hip as I did in this photo. Oh, and you need balls too.
