I was the lucky to win the bid on the purchase, and here is my proof of payment.

Thanks Tommie, and kudos for the initiative.

Behind the scenes – “I Used to Love Her” (photoshoot) http://www.eibrand.net/2011/01/03/behind-the-scenes-i-used-to-love-her-photoshoot/ http://www.eibrand.net/2011/01/03/behind-the-scenes-i-used-to-love-her-photoshoot/#respond Mon, 03 Jan 2011 21:27:26 +0000 http://www.eibrand.net/?p=634 After a recent hardware malfunction, I’ve had to rebuild my pc from backups. Having done most of that now, a little cleaning is underway.

In the process, I found the source of the video linked shown below. It got me to thinking, how’s about an edited, BTS (Behind the Scenes) type of video?

So here you go, hope you like it.

The shots from this shoot can be viewed here Donkey Fodder and I Used to Love her

More of the mannequin series can be found here http://photography.eibrand.net/category/mannequins/

The Road most travelled http://www.eibrand.net/2010/10/14/the-road-most-travelled/ http://www.eibrand.net/2010/10/14/the-road-most-travelled/#respond Thu, 14 Oct 2010 13:12:43 +0000 http://www.eibrand.net/?p=623 The shot above I took when driving back to Dublin after a weekend back west. I’ve had to do a few of those trips lately, and I’ve noticed that in certain light, parts of the motorway can be very visually striking.

About two weeks, I opted not to take a shot that I sorely regret now. It was the night the moon was bright red and large on the horizon, and on part of the motorway I was on, the moon was perfectly framed inside a bridge, with subtle lines leading up to the framed moon. As I saw this, I also realised that I had driven too far to safely stop and take the shot. There were more moments like that that evening, still kicking myself for not taking those shots.

Lesson learned though, if possible within acceptable bounds of safety, I will be taking more shots on my drive’s to/from home.

Strange Lights in the night, originally uploaded by eibrandr.

Took this shot last night as I was trying out time lapse/star trails.

No idea what the red light is, I have no recollection of seeing a plane, or other flying implements in the sky.

What I find interesting is that a plane would have left a straighter line (or at least I would have thought so), and also the other lights on the plane fuselage may have shown up.

Any suggestions welcome!

I was little surprised to see cats at the dog show, but it takes all sorts I suppose!

So over the last while, I have been wanting to re-design my site with more of an emphasis on photographs than anything else.

To that end, I’ve create the following site http://photography.eibrand.net

It showcase different types of images, and feature glimpses of ongoing projects (look out for the mannequin series…)

Hope you enjoy it, all feedback is welcome.
