Playing with Light, Photographer Meath, Cavan and Dublin


I am an outdoor, natural light photographer. I also spend a lot of time editing and perfecting the photographs I deliver. This week I spent some time studying lighting, doing an online workshop and learning how to perfect light in camera to achieve the look I am going for. I shoot only in manual mode and I usually shoot wide apertures, which to be honest, is the look I personally love and will probably stick to! but for these, I stepped out of my comfort zone and used a smaller aperture, f11 or so, higher ISO (embrace the grain!) and slower shutter (my biggest fear). When you're feeling in a rut creatively , nothing like stepping out of the comfort zone and pushing the boundaries to get the creative buzz going again! I aimed to achieve moody, light filled, contrasty black and whites. To edit them I used Lightroom, mainly adjusting the blacks, whites, highlights and shadows, upping the contrast and I used gradial filters and the clarify tool to get the effect I wanted. My main mission in these was to capture in-camera , the sun flare, the rays and the backlighting- which I happily achieved ! Here are some of my moody sunbeam filled photographs, caught in camera with my beautiful son.

Hope you're all well! xoxo
