About my Photography
ShaneMcDonald.me is my photoblog – one of 3 personal websites which I run. I thought separating the content out would make for more targeted content, shanemcdonald.org and shanemcdonald.com are the other 2 sites.
I always had an interest in photography, had a very basic Olympus back in 2001 and used this when travelling around the world in 2003. I upgraded to a Fuji S7000 in 2005 and started using advanced settings in fully manual, doing long exposure shots and playing around with high speed photography. I was really enjoying taking photos and decided to take up photography as a serious hobby in 2007 after I won the Imagine Arts Festival Photography competition with the photo below.
My favourite photography subjects are landscapes, nature, wildlife, night shoots / long exposures and shots which particularly nice lighting. I also enjoy generating HDR (High Dynamic Range) images.
I am a member of the Carrick Camera Club since 2009 and my photos have been published in Newspapers, Magazines, Brochures and email Newsletters, including;
- Irish Independent – Property Supplement
- Irish Times – in many adverts
- Hotel Brochures
- GoIreland Email Newsletter
