Deli at Night

A deli, at night in Dublin: Hey, look at that – the first post with the D7000! I have had it a good while already, but have not got around to posting any here yet. Still have loads of photos from the D60 to sort through…

Sun Catch, St. Stephen’s Green

St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin:The lunch time crowds taking in a little sunshine in the park.

The B+W conversion only just beat out the colour version for today’s choice. This version shows more drama in the trees, where the colour version was overwhelmed with shades of green.

LotusEater Live at The Workmans

I took the camera along to the LotusEater gig at The Workmans Club in August to try push my photography along a little. Turns out it was as difficult as I thought it would be, with a static red light shining on the vocalist and very little light on the rest of the band. So the ISO got pushed up as high as I’d dare before having a go!
The results were okay, but I was not happy how the red light caused havoc with the metering. In black and white they look better, but the high ISO on my poor little D60 was too much for it to handle and was unfortunately left with a lot of noise.
Next time I’ll have the D7000 in hand and expect I’ll be much happier with the results!
