Most of the time when I am out with the DSLR I am also out with my girlfriend Eva so she is often the subject of my photographic assault. She’s already appeared in photos here, here and here, but I thought I’d include three of my favourites, that I haven’t already used, as one post.
The first photo was taken as we climbed up the East Mountain (bit of an exaggerated name) in Howth. I got Eva to scramble on ahead up a reasonably steep and rocky bit. I took photos of her the whole way up and my favourite was this one of her almost just about to crest. I really like how she is walking towards nothing and how little of the frame she, or the land occupies.
This photo was taken at a pond about 200 metres from the house I grew up in. I vaguely remember going there as a kid. The pond itself is fairly stagnant and murky but there’s some lovely greenery around and it’s just off a very quiet road. Eva had wandered round to the other side of the pond and was framed by the two bushes and the overhanging tree. I took at the camera and took a few photos all the while wishing for a telephoto lens! I really like this photo regardless, I think the framing really works and I love how Eva almost blends into the nature in the background.
The final photo was taken at Malahide Castle, in the forest there. We went off the main path and into the trees and I took this reverse-portrait of Eva. I really like this style of photo, my computer has at least four or five variations of this photo on it though I think this is my favourite of them.
