Sometimes shoots require I spend a night away from home. This was the case a couple of days ago when I travelled to Blarney to see a video of an event I photographed back in June. Although I wasn't working as such, I decided to take some social shots to submit to the Southern Star. Where to start? The committee, of course!
I like to get a variety of people at these type of functions, just to give the editor a good few pics to choose from. Remember, if it doesn't get published, I don't get paid!
As I wasn't working in an official capacity, I didn't take a ton of pictures - I love my job, but it is nice to have a break occasionally!
The event was held in the Blarney Castle Hotel, which I photographed a few months ago for its new website, which I'm told will go live very soon. It's always satisfying to see one's work on a new website, it makes the hours of shooting and processing all worthwhile!
I blogged about one of the shoots at the hotel a few months back, but I'm going to tell you all about the second shoot I did in next week's blog post, so watch out for that one! In the meantime, here's a taster of what's coming up...
