photography podcasts irelandStewart and the crew at DPS are delighted to announce there most recent project has come to life in the form of DPS Snapshot Podcast...Snapshot was originally a downloadable PDF magazine, but with a change in user behavior being geared to much more audio and video engagement, Snapshot is Ireland’s First and Only Dedicated Photography Podcast, and looks at photography from the average users perspective and is not bogged down on tech heavy jargon. simply put its a nice conversation between a couple of photographers about the moving and happening in photography in Ireland.

The first episode of “Snapshot Podcast” explores the rise of mirrorless and four third cameras in recent years and if they will and can eventually replace DSLR’s, in  the second half of the show the guys talk about some of their travel photography experiences as photographers and photo holiday guides.  The podcast can be downloaded or streamed from the Dublin Photography School Website.

DPS Snapshot can be found here.

They say everyday is a school day….and if that’s the case then May 11th 2017 will be a fantastic one for me….having been approached by Kim Lynch soon to be a graduate photography Student  from Saint Kevin’s College in Crumlin about a collaboration body of work for her graduate show in early 2016.

After much discussion and back and forth we settled on a fantastic idea of project that combined a couple of our passions, the first was Lomography, Lomo or Lofi photography has been something I have been playing around with in the last ten years and have completed a few body of works in the area. The second was travel photography…..and behold a project was born…..
Instead of boring you with long winded artist statements, I’ll give you the stripped down version…

Whats it about:
The work explores the relationship between surrealism and the latent image…….or we could just say it’s about two photographers doing what they do best…MAKING IMAGES!
One shoots a roll of film then they hand it over to the other and the film is reloaded into a camera and shot a second time…the images produced are a double exposure that combine the two distinct images into a single picture, add to that the unpredictable nature of the Lomo cameras with their unique aesthetic, and the images can be fun, abstract, haunting, surreal.
For my part the images have been shot all over the world in places such as Morocco, Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, Iceland to name but a few. For Kim’s part her images are shot closer to home with a few few travel destinations of her own thrown in.

This comes as demand for lightroom courses has increased in recent years and is rivaling if not replacing photoshop as the go to program for most amateur and beginner photographers. While photoshop remains king in the manipulation and retouching game it struggles to keep up with Lightrooms impressive workflow and keywording options. Our Lightroom course will teach a “as well as” and not an “instead of” ethos, that will show you what program to use where and making sure your getting the most out of the right tools for the right jobs. The course is very  reasonably priced coming in at just €135.

The overview of the course is as follows

‘Adobe Lightroom’ is a photo processor & image organizer. Some amount of post-processing is an unavoidable part of our professional photography & with all/any genre of photography we need to choose the right software for our needs. Lightroom is very much geared towards photography, as opposed to it’s older brother Photoshop, which has a wider appeal across all different platforms of digital design. With it’s no nonsense user interface & simple stripped down retouching tools, it makes it quick & easy to post-process multiple images in one easy environment. It’s focus is on speed & organization & non destructive manipulation. On this workshop we will show you the skills needed to post-process your images & make the best use out of ‘Adobe Lightroom’.
