Hi,
After taking much longer than expected I've finally finished my wedding photography website- http://patrickdinneen.ie/

I still have a few bits to tweek, some photos to add to some of the weddings & rearrange them but for the most it's finished.

If you have a few minutes please have a look & I'd be delighted with feedback- overall thought, what you like & don't like & constructive criticism.

Thanks in advance,
Pa

An artist and neighbour of mine, Kathy Ross has some of her work in a very unique exhibition by Athenry M Artists Group-local artists work features Athenry Mart (the cattle, people and the mart building itself) and is on display in one of the mart rings. It's the perfect environment to house the exhibition as the mart is an integral part of Athenry town and visitors can associate to the art more as there's cattle, farmers around them and they are in the buildings featured in the art.

I visited the exhibition recently and experienced my first cattle mart as well. What can I say about it? It's an experience & a man's world; the musical, almost singing voice of the auctioneer, the farmers, cattle and surprisingly quick sales.












Cheers,Pa

Hi,
Happy Valentines Day! (tomorrow)
If you have a fullscreen homepage you might as well use is 'seasonally' I think. (unless you're main aim is selling and having all flowers on your landing page might confuse people into what your area is). Lucky then my main aim isn't selling.

Cheers,
Pa.

I recently had a luxurious stay in The Marker Hotel, Grand Canal Dock in Dublin last weekend. The Grand Canal Dock has undergone major recent rejuvenation, now houses some exciting and eye-catching buildings, including The Marker Hotel and the Bord Gais Energy Theatre

Both are very striking buildings and I was drawn to the lines and patterns in both. the first four photos are of the Bord Gais Energy Theatre (left)The last three photographs are of the side of the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, an (unknown to me) office building and The Marker Hotel, which has the black and white patchwork design.













Cheers,
Pa.

haven't read the 6 pages so sorry if I'm repeating...
Do you hedge any grieves who are into photography? If so spend an afternoon with them giving you a basic lesson-
When to use aperture setting
When to use shutter setting.

Don't worry about anything else at first.
Then learn about the effect a quick shutter speed has on aperture and vice versa.

Don't go near manual setting for ages.
After you understand them then learn about iso.

If you don't have a friend who can help I'd advise a basic photography course. No idea where you live but hopefully you can find one. I think it's 10 times better getting a lesson in person with someone you can ask questions to and go over what you don't get than learning from a book or the net.

Good luck.

has potential but for me there is no main focal point. I'd try cupping out the left, make it portrait orientation and making the empty chairs the focal point.

Someone was kind enough to give me a loan of a Sigma 10-20mm lens for over a week.
I presume there's many other like me that would like to see how much more you actually capture with a wide angle. So here are some photos comparing 10mm with 17mm.
My thoughts are it's a 'nice to have' lens but I don't know how much I'd use it.

I got a K5ii from B&H on their Black Friday sale. Now I have a K-7 and the K-5ii.
I shot a friends wedding just before Christmas so it was perfect to have the two cameras and be able to use high ISO (1600 very comfortably).
Here's a few photos of the bride and groom getting ready before the ceremony Úna and Tony wedding in Cork, 2013. Bride and Groom getting readyPatrick Dinneen Photography

Next a flash maybe. Although I've manged without one so far but there's certain situations where it'd help I'm sure.

Hi,
Thanks for the step-by-step instructions.
would the solution and steps be the same for the K-7? I'm having problems with the front e-dial; jumps when trying to go below 1/30 of a second sometimes.

Suggestion Too many entries in competitions-
Posted By dinneenp

Hi,
I don't know what the best solution is but I find that there's way too many photos in the monthly competitions (260+ in Jan competition).

I don't think that anyone can look at that quantity of photos without getting over saturated. it's just too much to take in. By the time I get down to 60+ photo I've had enough.
Also having to scroll back to the top to select your photos isn't user friendly, could a tickbox be put next to each photo?

Cheers,
Pa.
