Boys don't jump... rocks do?
See it a lot bigger... here
So I was trying to think... what will I take now? I needed to get out and shoot again, but I also needed to have something in mind to shoot!
My mum has been telling me for ages to use the beach, somewhere other than a field with the sugar loaf in the background really! And this image instantly came to mind, I did a few doodles of it so make sure I wouldnt forget it. This week has been really busy... and Ive been in the exhibition 3 days in a row now so Im pretty wrecked from the trek up there!
Anyway... what was I saying? Oh yes! This photo! Well the other day Kevin seemed eagar to come out shooting... mainly because he called shotgun and could choose the music! But also because his brother just bought a DSLR and hes getting into it- so I really wanted to try and get out today and since he lives in Kelans house- Kelan came too! ... Unfortunately after the exhibition "wrap party" last night.... I had to wait a good while this morning for the alcohol to get out of my system so I could drive! It was a great night.... I just dont really remember it that clearly!(I remember AndySheridan saying maybe now he'll read the crap I write under my photos... lets see if thats true :P)
Oh god Im writing loads here... blame it on the fact its a sunday! Aaaaaaaaaaaaanyway.... the point was ... yes, I had planned this shot with Kev in mind... but then we got down to the sea today and he said there was no way he was taking his coat/hoody/hat/gloves off! So Kelan stepped in :) (THANKYOU it wasnt really that cold I bet :P)
Those rocks arent photoshopped! Well... they are all in the one shot via photoshop, but we were throwing rocks up in the air for ages and I just layered the shots then afterwards! It was fun though, and having three of us made it easier, but its been sooo boring to put together! My photoshop+computer crashes every few clicks as it is, constantly layering photos... it does not like at all! Oh and then I added the overlay texture just for kicks :)
Oh! Oh! I forgot to say.... Thank you everyone who came out to see Dublinr!! It was a huge success, saturday and sunday... the place was never empty! not bad for a bunch of flickrers hiring out a few rooms in a place noone could find ;) And an even bigger thanks to the crazy but wonderful people that bought my prints! (and theyre still available- email for details) I really, really appreciate it and can't really believe it at all :) Now I just can't wait for the next one!
P.p.p.p.s ! I forgot to say.... if you have any spare time to throw away, pleeeease go to www.metrophotochallenge.com/ie/photo/19097 and vote for my photo :) Ive a 3 in a 100 chance of winning a new camera and its all down to internet votes! So photography aside, its who can whore out that link to as many people as possible :( but I figure.... its worth trying sure :) you need to give them your email and get a confirmation, but thats all, its really simple, if you need a vote for something, Il get you back! :)
