Driving from Cork to Kerry this afternoon, the weather cleared and we stopped for a walk in the grounds of Muckross House. Following a path on the promontory into the lake, we suddenly came on this view. Too good to miss. Quality not great (taken with an iPhone4) but as usual the best camera is the one you happen to have with you.
Bill Eppridge, the great Life photographer who got the famous picture of Senator Robert Kennedy after his assassination, has died at the age of 75. Today’s New York Times has assembled a lovely portfolio of his pictures which reminds one how good he was.
Fascinating video, reporting this research. As all photographers know, to get really good images at the moment you need really good lenses (and, of course, good digital sensors). And really, really good lenses are very, very expensive. So just imagine the astonishing impact this approach could have if a way can be found of commercialising it.
