Flashback – Feile 92 Recovered Photos

Feile 92 Photos

In 1992 I was at Feile in Thurles after I won a competition on 98 FM. I recently found a collection of old photos which were taken with a Fuji disposable camera which I bought at Feile. The camera was very poor, as you would expect from a disposable camera from 24 years ago.

Below is a select gallery of images from that day. If you spot yourself please leave a comment !

Shane McDonald Photography Blog on Facebook

Since January 2011 I have being running a photography blog on www.shanemcdonald.me. Initially I was updating the site every week or so, but it quickly went to being updated every month. IN 2016, I think I updated it only 4-5 times.

The content on the site would include photos of places I have been or events I have photographed. The design has changed somewhat since the blog started and I continue to tweak it on an ongoing basis. Only last week I started a major overhaul of the site to try find the optimum style for me. Work is ongoing with this and the photo blog itself still needs some work.

First Use of the Lee Filters system

First Use of the Lee Filters system

Over the past 7 or 8 years I have experimented with using filters. I started off using very cheap ones I got online for under £10. Those were real rubbish but I could see the potential.

I then upgraded to brand name filters, I won’t name the company as those filters resulted in soft photos and a colour cast on some occasions. They worked to an extend but you could not reply on them.

After doing some research on Twitter (basically asking photographers which filters they used), I found that the Lee Filters system was the one to go for. While I was in London recently I decided to take the plunge. I got the adapter ring for my 24-105 L series lens, the foundation kit holder for the Lee filters and the Lee Filters Big Stopper. The Big Stopper is a whopping 10 stops of a filter, so a 1 second exposure becomes a 16 minute exposure using the Big Stopper.

In the past 24 hours I have tried out the filters and they work really well as you can see yourself below. I hope to post more photos using these filters on my photo website at www.shanemcdonald.me and on my Instagram account www.instagram.com/shanesphoto

Social Media & Photography Sharing

Social Media & Photography Sharing

As you may know I have a photography blog at www.shanemcdonald.me but I also share a lot of this content online via Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and only recently the site at 500px which I have been slightly addicted to. I have just posted my Photography Year in Review and look forward to more of the same in 2013.

If you wish to follow any of these I have outlined the social media and social sharing links below.
