ABOUT SHANE MCDONALD PHOTOGRAPHY
I am Shane McDonald, an Amateur Photographer from Waterford, Ireland. I started taking photos around 1999 with a 1.3 mega-pixel Olympus digital camera. After winning a Waterford photography contest in 2007 I started taking my photography a bit more serious. This site, Shane McDonald Photography blog, was setup in 2010 and has extended since then.
The main types of photography I enjoy include landscapes, architecture, food photography, long exposure and blue-hour photography. I post regularly to Instagram and Twitter via the @shanesphoto handle and my Facebook page is available by clicking the logo on this site.
This photoblog is a finalist in the Blog Awards Ireland 2018.
Blog posts are added at least once a week, and I do like to get comments, so please leave one if you have a chance. I hope you enjoy the site.
I enjoy capturing the skill and talent of the chef in my food photography. I think food photography should capture the use of fresh ingredients, the creativeness of the chef and also entice the viewer with a mouth-watering final shot.Food Photography
I enjoy travel and the fantastic shots which can be captured en-route. My favourite travel photography destinations include New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, and of course Ireland (especially the west coast and Wild Atlantic Way).Travel Photography
Nature in all it’s forms is a photographers dream subject. Everything from the smallest bird or colourful dragonfly to the largest deer provide a great photo shoot opportunity. Most of my nature shots are from Ireland and the UK.Nature Photography
