So here is the summer and festival season gets underway.
The road signs all pointed out to Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath… campervans and tents ready thousands set out for a weekend of good vibe music, fun and of course, drinking and who knows what..
The lineup was grand, with the likes of M83, Django Django, Little Dragon, Spiritualized, St Vincent and WhoMadeWho.
I could only attend the Sunday gigs, maybe next time I will take my tent too and stay the whole weekend
Here follow some shots, on assigment for State.ie :
The new Nikon D800 is a superb HD-SLR.
Released in 22nd March 2012 I was lucky enough to get one of the first productions units and have been taking it thru its first paces.
A more in-depth review is due, but for now here is one capture from this weekends gig in the O2 Dublin.
For now I can shortly summarize it as the most powerfull HD-SLR available, which is challenging to shoot with, given its 36 Megapixel sensor resolution.
Photos come out really good straight-out-of-cammera (SOOC!) and the video capabilities are un-matched in this segment.
Labrinth was the supporting act for Drake, in a ‘quasi’ sold out O2. The performance was good and the crowd was having a good time.
Here is one my favorite photo from the gig, taken with the Nikon 14-24mm @ f/2.8 1/160 ISO400, Auto-WB (shot in .JPG configured to optimal quality, sRGB):
And here is a 100% crop (400px wide).
Nikon 24-70mm @ f/2.8 1/100 ISO800, Shot in Jpg, Quality priority, Large size / Fine.
