    First Astrophotography Timelapse

    I had seen timelapse videos showing the stars in the night sky moving, showing the rotation of the earth, sometimes even showing the milky way as it traverses the night sky. Having done some research I found out that you need a digital shutter timer or intervalometer. I found one on Amazon for under €30 […]

    Tramore Amusements Monster Firework Display 2013

    On Sunday 25th August there was a Monster Fireworks display in Tramore, Co. Waterford. I decided to try and get a few shots having not brought the camera to the Spraoi fireworks display. In this post I outline the technique used I used in taking photos of fireworks and also some photos of the Tramore […]

  • Montreal, Evening Street Scene

    Montreal, Evening Street Scene

    I thought I had finished posting photos of Canada when I found this one. I thought that the photo had potential so after a bit of editing I ended up with a version I was happy with. The shot itself was one which I took while walking past this area. Set the camera up on […]

    Making the Most of the Blue Hour in Waterford

    Tonight I decided to put the camera in the car and drive around and see what presented itself. Around 9pm the darkness was starting to become apparent and I chanced checking what time the International Space Station would be heading over Waterford. Thanks to the Twisst service on Twitter 21:10pm was listed and I made […]

    I haven’t been updating the project52 recently as I was away in Canada and during the trip took a few snaps which will appear here on the blog and also on the Flickr Stream. Delighted to have some good weather to take photos, the typical Irish man in me would comment that it was a […]

    Moonshot – 9/Project 52

    Once again this past week the weather didn’t cooperate with my plans. ISS was in our skies last week and Monday and Tuesday it was too cloudy, Wednesday I didn’t have access to my camera, and Thursday – Sunday was not good for taking photos, with wind and rain. The best I did was a […]

    Crescent Moon over the River Suir – 4/Project 52

    This week I decided to take advantage of the recent crescent moon in our skies since Monday. Using the 75-300 Canon lens, tripod & cable release I got a few good photos of the waxing crescent moon (at about 19%) and did some work with it from there. The photo above was taken in Carrick […]

    International Space Station Pictured over new Waterford Bridge

    I was hoping the International Space Station would track directly over the new Waterford Bridge and had set up my camera at around 10pm with the ISS pass scheduled for 10:05pm over Waterford. I could see the ISS coming and took 2 quick shots of the bridge to check focus and light levels. Unfortunately as […]
