Hi Folks

Should anybody be interested in photography and images in general;

I'm holding a photography exhibition for one a one week period opening night next week Dec 1st 7pm running until Dec 8th.

Location is Leixlip, Co Kildare, Ireland
Venue is Leixlip community Library.

Title of Exhibition is 'A journey of images in 5 continents'

Takes in 10-15 images per continent of travels and work in Antractica, Asia, Africa, America and Europe.


If you can pass by - would love to hear some genuine feedback (i.e - not family/friends who would 'Never' lie .....)


Thanks for your time.

Diesel

The intention is there to do put them all online, have to figure a secure way. Scanning them in and cleaning them up was taking available time. Possibly new year April timeframe - nothing definite.

At moment, using an English based company, kind of as a testbed who sells them online - Prices I think are too high, but that's markup etc..

Currently 30 uploaded with them, some belong to the exhibition, most not.

If you can't make the exhibition - enjoy the online ones, if you can make it - please try hold off the online - holds a bit more drama when seen real life.

Wonderful work. I especially love the Twilight Door, and your eye for people and their body language.

Beautiful! The only thing I would like to see is a listing of where each one was taken, at last by country. The falls are increidble and I love the "pig in pea soup" as well as the B&W's! You've a good eye!

There is some commentary that came up in a yellow box, if you hover the cursor over a photo.

Cheers,

As Susan pointed, hover the cursor over the photo to get commentary, or better click the photo to enlarge, Commentary and location details should be all there.
The equipment details are a 'capture all' from when I started taking the pictures - it's possibly not fully accurate. General rule - if it's colour it's slide film (Kat - the falls picture - and the rest - you should see them when projected !!!! Wow is all I can describe them as ) If it's B+W - its Ilford negative film.

Current camera is Canon EOS since 1992 - won't be changing to digital in the near future - staying with the slide film as much as I can.

Diesel.

Very nice work. The last image, Commute To Work, caught my eye in the thumbnail. I clicked on it thinking the man had a puppy on the back of his bike. I was shocked to see it was a machine gun...

I like these.

I really enjoyed looking at your Photographs Diesel.

I liked "After the rain" and "Joyce in Dublin" in particular but all the photographs are interesting imo
Good luck with the Exhibition.

Best Wishes
Jude

Just wondering, have ye taken any photographs around Kildare?

I imagine you know about flickr. http://flickr.com/ - If you haven't, it's a pretty handy way of sharing photos.

Hi

No Alba - not many at least. it's really shocking when going through the collections at home just how little I have locally.
New years resolution - Will take more, at least starting in Leixlip, then outwards.

No McGrath - Never heard of 'Flicker' - always interested in sites like it though, again for ideas for when I do get a website up and running.
Have browsed, but not sure if I'll sign to flicker just yet, Almost reaching overload of things to do list at moment !

Thanks for the comments and encouragement folks !

Diesel.

Your photos show that you rate the personal exhibit well. Would drop in if it wasn't a little too far from Michigan.

Hello All

Thanks for the wishes ahead of the launch.

My God I'm still on cloud 9. The opening happened last night and was attended by I think 80-90 people, wine glasses in hand. Feedback on the night was brilliant, longstanding friends saying 'knew you took photo's but....! ' or ' heard you mention before - never realised...'

Hardest job in the final days was not what photos to put on the walls - it was what NOT to put on the walls. Huge lesson if any 'catters go the same direction, to balance colour V's theme etc - some of my favourites just had to go on a shelf - else the wall would be cluttered.

Ended up with five walls - simple clean single lines of 10x8's black card frame mounted. Above which were 20x12 canvas (photo on canvas) and 20x12 print (black card frame mount also)

I think about 70 images alltold.

For the remainder photo's in the collection, ran them on a slideshow projected onto spare wall. Worked brilliant, gave a changing visual backdrop as people were talking, avoiding people leaving early and in at least one case I know of made a sale by virtue of a 10x8 being sold as 20x12 - because the projector showed it's scaled effect.

Nerves finally got to me as I said my few words, but exhaustion - Bang - today has been a wrecker....

Thanks for letting me ramble, until I get my own website running - which I definitely am going to do now, I'm going to continously add to the link above. Will submit the walled exhibits first, and post back here if you want to re-visit.

And still the day job to attend to...

Diesel !

That's fantastic! Congratulations! I love the idea of projecting the ones you didn't hang. That was a brilliant solution.

WONDERFUL photos, James. "Twilight Door" particularly moved me. The image evokes many different countries. It is also very mysterious: I want to know what is behind it.

Congratulations on your show. Wish I could be there in person, but it would involve a whole lot of swimming.

'Twilight door' Got the canvas treatment for the expo - and sold !!! What can I say !

Photo was taken in a jungle village in Liberia, West Africa. Myself and another volunteer had been tasked to travel to recover a crashed car, and 3/4 ways there stopped for a breather, basically the sun was on its way down and caught beautifully the mud walls and timber door of the building. I took two photo's one of the building and another zoomed in onto the door as you see it (God bless Zoom lenses).

So in a nutshell - nothing staged, 5 minutes either way and photo may never have been taken. So rather opportunistic, which is same really for a lot of the photo's I have. Seems to work and tell a story in their own right by requiring the viewer to think about the image that little bit more.

Anyway - glad you liked it. Wednesday I'm back in work (broadband connection) so I'll get back to uploading the rest.
