Took a drive out to Vartry Reservoir (near Roundwood, County Wicklow) a couple of weekends ago and took a camera. A sunny day for the most part and we enjoyed a walk along the bank before heading home again. While she wasn’t paying any attention to me, I took a few shots for The Little Red Hat website while shooting the river and trees. This one was edited in Adobe LR which I learned from photographer Nick Fancher’s amazing book Studio Anywhere. His book has made a massive difference to my Lightroom experience and how I now approach photography. Always learning, always experimenting… I will be posting more from the set at davedwyer.com .
Great sunset over River Liffey last night. Shot on iphone on the way into Merc for a few scoops with main man ‘Homer’…dude!
This shot was taken on the way to the Odyssey Arena in November 2011 on my Samsung compact. My friend Colm had two tickets for the MTV music awards and invited me, he is a big fan of the band Queen who received an award that night. I knew nothing of MTV awards but I knew Belfast and so was the nominated tour guide. Although the MTV event was all Lady Gaga, Jessie J and Justin Bieber, nothing I would vaguely consider as music (thanks Colm), it was a good night on the town. If you have never been to Belfast, you are missing out. It is a fantastic city, somewhere I always look forward to revisiting. If like me you are into live music, check out the empire music hall on Botanic avenue, sadly Auntie Annies on Dublin road has now closed down. If you fancy a nice all day veggie fry up, you cannot beat the Harlem Café on Bedford Street, next to the Ulster Hall – it’s quality.
