This summer during my ramblings with the dogs and the camera, I discovered a secret spot. Just by the side of the road but with a magical feeling to it that is simply unmistakable. A magnificent #Vintage Point with a great view of Lough Corrib, snuggled among the wild Connemara vegetation.
I am also entering this image for the #VintagePoint project organized by Light
But I think the magic atmosphere of my secret place among the wild grasses of Connemara is pretty well captured here:
- always have the camera with me
- take all photos in manual mode so I have control over the light and the aperture measurements.
- always shoot in RAW
Basically, My process is as follows: I walk by, I see something that captures my imagination, the image develops in my mind, I grab the camera, set the settings, take that photo, when I get home I process the RAW file, work on it a little (checking the histogram, adding a bit of contrast if needed, sometimes changing the white balance according to the light conditions), I don't really like too much alterations or edits and that's it really...
I secretly call it Where the fairies go to dance
