Assignment A Week #4 – Shoot Into the Light

This weeks assignment is all about shooting into the light. Go out for a walk, be it a whole day or just an hour for your lunch, and aim your lens in the direction of the sun. It’s a tricky exercise as you need to find that perfect balance between your highlights and shadows. Making sure you don’t clip or clamp either. I prefer to shoot in dense urban environments as the light reflects off the buildings, which tend to

Reliving A Moment

Even months after my trip to Chicago I can still hear the band playing whenever I look at this photo. Relax’s me to be honest. I feel like I need to be capturing more pictures that spark a memory to me versus something random happening on the street. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy shooting street but it’s always good to re-live a moment in time. -Dominic

Experimenting With Filters

It’s always good to try new things, otherwise you’ll stagnate. My brain has been telling me lately to try and experiment with my photography. Try something new. I was browsing a photographer and DP’s work on Instagram (Wanderingdp) and noticed he was using a diopter on some of his work to give it a dreamy or surreal look. Something DP’s experiment with from time to time and I have some experience with diopters and funky filters from our DP on

Leica Q… Tempting…

So… the Leica Q was announced late last week. Since then I’ve read a multitude of reviews purely out of curiosity. Most of the reviews read as marketing fluff pieces except for one. And that’s Ming Thein’s review. In which he raved about the camera but was honest with its faults and limitations. So it had me thinking. Since I primarily use a 28mm on both my M9 and my M7, is it worth picking up the Leica Q? Then

Warwick Hotel

A figure waits patiently… Silhouetted by the light of The Warwick Hotel… Waiting for his contact to arrive. (Part of an on-going series) There is nothing more that I love than shooting on Kodak Cinema film. I’ve written about this in the past and have documented how people can develop their own Motion Picture Film here. The colour this film outputs at night is stunning and something I’m looking forward to using when I manage to get a Hasselblad XPan.

Dutched Watermelon

I watched the couple after I snapped this photo wondering if the watermelon belonged to them. I gave up after a few minutes but they never touched it or looked at it. What was this watermelon, wrapped, doing there lopsided on the garbage can. Meh! Dublin, Ireland (June 2014) Leica M7 + Voigtlander Ultron 28mm f/2 + Ilford XP2 400

Almost

Gah! Sometimes shooting from the hip is good when you want to be quick and achieve a specific angle. Sometimes you manage to get the shot your looking for. And other times you fail like I did above! I love the look on the womans face but the composition is obviously a fail. If only I had tilted down a touch more I think I would have gotten the shot I was looking for in my mind. -Dominic Soho, NYC

County Antrim Post

I was recently contacted by the County Antrim Post, in Northern Ireland, about the images I posted here on my blog. They were interested in featuring some of my images in their weekly newspaper and they included a little blurb about me. Nice to know I have some readers in Northern Ireland! You can see the article embedded below. Thanks to Damien for providing me with a PDF. -Dominic
