I needed to make a trip into Limerick on Saturday morning and as luck would have it, the rain that had fallen all week in this part of the world abated, and a cool, clear autumnal day dawned. The sun stayed low in the sky, meaning long, dark shadows were cast by the shoppers busily shopping.
It was an opportunity to have a wander to make some pictures.
As I’ve explained previously, ‘street’ isn’t really my thing – I find it difficult and stressful. But sometimes, when the light is good and I’ve shot a few early frames that I like, confidence increases and get I get on a bit of a roll. This happened on Saturday and I came away with some pictures that I like.
I remembered one or two of the tips that I’d learned on Cathal’s workshop, almost two years ago, and put them to use. Also, something that I picked up from Adrian, and that it to take pictures early in the walk or the day, and to ‘break the seal’. Even if they’re no good, at least you’ve started…
The picture above was the one frame I made of the scene – no multi-exposure shenanigans were employed…
