elcome to the boards.ie photography forum’s first magazine publication. The magazine started out as a challenge with the

intention to be published from start to finish over the course of 24 hours. This you will appreciate has been a considerable feat in terms of organisation and production - to begin the 24 hour period with nothing and finalise a publication before the end of a full 24 hour day. The photographers involved have gathered through the boards.ie photography forum and represent all styles and skill levels. The forum is a fantastic place, for anyone who loves photography, to hang out and chat/debate/and share photography related matters. Through the forum cool projects get organised such as this magazine, an annual photobook publication, photography expeditions and periodic exhibitions. The day of the 24 hour project itself - the 24th of July, 2010 was far from favourable in terms of weather conditions however at least in some parts of the country the sun shone for a time in the latter part of the day.

I would like to extend sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to the production - to all the boards.ie users that assisted with the thought process on the forum in the lead up to the day and to those photographers who spent time on the day taking images and contributing those image(s) to the publication. I salute you all. In particular a special mention and thanks goes to boards.ie user Chorcai (Chris Collins) for the tireless efforts in designing the publication. The final production is a credit to Chris and appropriately displays the photographers work in an elegant design which emphasises the photographic endeavours of the day. Whether you are consuming the publication by reading/reviewing it on-line or have partaken in any part of the lead up, shooting, design, production, or publication, I sincerely hope that you enjoy the fruit of the labour. If you are not familiar with the boards.ie photography forum and if you have an interest in photography then why not drop by to http://photography.boards.ie and say hello - we’re a friendly bunch and there is always a welcoming atmosphere. Keep shooting, keep smiling, and above all - love photography. Best, AnCatDubh (Tommy Kavanagh)

The time lord Markham Nolan Boards.ie: Markham

On the way down to the Festival of World Cultures, my grandfather needed his watch fixed. We went into Madden’s Jewellers, an olde-world shop on Georges’ St, where the proprietor did the business for €7. There and then. That’s service.

Aimee Philip Hennessy Boards.ie: Buzz Lightyear I took a trip today to Dublin Zoo with my family and my brothers two children. Aimee, my brothers daughter can be a serious child and gives some wonderful looks. I caught this one of her hanging out of her buggy. She’s a curious two year old.

Contemplating Philip Hennessy Boards.ie: Buzz Lightyear Harry the large Silverback Gorilla. The gorillas at the zoo are a part wonderful intelligent species who shall shortly be moving to the African Plains area where they shall have better living conditions. This move is part of the ongoing redevelopment of Dublin zoo aimed at improving the lives of many of the larger African animals and allows for many of them to be located together in an environment that more accurately mimics their traditional habitat. www.pix.ie/buzzlightyear

The friendly joyrider Keith Gaule Boards.ie: Thecageyone

Isn’t it strange? The only people to ever give you a wave when you’re out photographing, are the chavs/ little boy racers and dodgey geezers! Note the cracked windshield.

I often find when I head out to take pictures, that I forget to eat beforehand. Silly! And the hours can fly by just looking for something to photograph. The sun came up today so I had an ice cream swirl. Chocolate, strawberry icecream with chunks of wafer and strawberries ... Mmmm.

Skylight sunset Keith Gaule Boards.ie: Thecageyone

Just as I put the kids the bed, and went to pull the blinds down in one of the rooms, I was blinded by the sunset reflecting off the Skylight from the kitchen below. Had to run and grab the camera! It’s a disease I tell yis!

Saturday – 24/7/10 09:35 - Out of bed. Feel wrecked. Have no idea what to do with the theme. Going to get a cup of tea. 10:10 - Keep on thinking of Rome for some reason. Rome wasn’t built “in just one day”. Thinking of perhaps a shot of Drogheda. Maybe a tag line of “Rome wasn’t built in a day, but Drogheda looks like it was”. 10:30 – Mooching about Boards. Have a horrible feeling everyone will submit a brilliant photograph to the magazine, and my contribution, if there is one, will be so poor it will actually take away from other people’s work. 11:15 – Bin lorry drove past (on a Saturday?). Was thinking of perhaps a series of shots, showing food in a supermarket, to it being ate and the wrapper etc. Being thrown in the bin and collected by a lorry. 11:18 – Realised I don’t have a bin lorry and doubt Tesco would like me photographing their store. 12:14 – Just got a text from Chorcaì. He seems fairly upbeat for someone whose head must be wrecked looking at design templates and such. I’m about to head out the door. 12:25 – I’m in a shop around the corner from my house. Cameras are soaked in the weather. Not happy. May turn back. Still can’t think of anything. 12:40 – I’m heading back home. Seen some flowers on my way to the shop that were soaked. May photograph them. “In just one day” it was all bright and lovely, but the rain ruined it. 12:55 – I’ve been asked by an elderly gentleman in a car if I’m making a (photography) book. He seemed quite enthusiastic about the idea of a photo book on his hometown. When I mentioned the internet he left. (Also to note, I’m fairly certain there are some photobooks about Drogheda already out there). 13:10 – The state of this neighbourhood. Filthy. Often see people planting flowerbeds and such and the next day they’re ripped up and danced on. 14:00 – I’m home and at the computer. Took a photo of a bedraggled flowerbed. No doubt it was destroyed, “in just one day”. I hope other people are struggling as much as me. Might submit it. Chorcaì has a good interpretation of the theme. Whatever you plan to do with your day – photograph it. 14:36 – Finished post-processing an image. Think I may have went overboard. Will send two versions of it to the Gmail address. If it gets put in, they can decide which version is nicest. 15:13 – Time to get some food into me. Will get this emailed in now. Have quite enjoyed the challenge. My photographs are not at all worthy of getting into the magazine, but I’m genuinely curious to see what other’s will come up with. Kudos to An Cat Dubh and Chorcaì for putting so much effort into this.

Random Thread Random Day! Rowan Lacey + Kyle Tunney Boards.ie: theboat + Kjt

Today Rowan and myself decided to challenge ourselves for the 24hr boards magazine. We decided to do something different. Armed with a red fullface helmet, the other photographer as a model and given five shots to tell a story. I was very interested to see how different our ideas would be.

Today in the Office Darren Carr Boards.ie: dakar

Project Description: I am fortunate enough to be the subject of an ongoing photographic documentary project by Sinéad McDonald as part of her Digital Media degree course, focusing on my work as a Veterinary Surgeon in mixed practice in Sligo in the North West of Ireland. It has opened my eyes to the fact that most of us go through our working days with no record of our day to day existence to look back on. The farm side of my work takes place against the backdrop of a changing world. The kind of old stone buildings that will probably show up in photographs as ruins under a dramatic stormy sky in the near future are still pressed into service by a generation of older farmers. Airy concrete sheds make life easier, but I like the rusty, crumbling charm of older buildings while they are still working structures. My iPhone provides me with an unobtrusive way to record my day’s work, without the upheaval that my SLR would cause. The best camera is the one you have with you. My ‘office’ changes all the time, I’m a lucky boy!

TTV - Through The Viewfiner 24/07/2010

Tonight I attended an TTV Takeaway night, as part of the Trans Festival in Belfast’s Waterfront Hall What is that i hear you ask! TTV stands for Through The Viewfinder, and is involves using one camera, normally a digital SLR to take photos through the viewfinder of another camera, an old TLR camera for example. This gives the photos a distintive square black border with colour and focus distortion which is different depending on the camera used. The results are interesting to say the least. It gives a very unique view and feel to a photograph. This is partly due to the contraption - that is the technical term used to combine the cameras. It is essentially a cardboard tube to block any light except what comes throught the viewfinder of the second camera.

97


The TTV takeaway night, was the last night of the largest TTV exhibition anywhere in the world, and was the work of John Baucher aka Moochin Photoman on flickr - a belfast artist and TTV convert. John has a great way with people and will talk to anyone, which enables him to photography anyone and everyone, from high society, Royality, ‘Celebs’, Tourists, Friends, Actors, Street Performers, Homeless, Street drinkers, right down to politicians!. His exhibition included around 1000 photos, mostly portraits taken over the last year or so. But what about the takeaway part? Well that was the best part - the last night was the Takeaway night where everyone was encouraged to take what they wanted, and keep it. A great way to end the exhibition - I wish they were all like that! Check out the technique - There is a TTV group on flickr and plenty of help for anyone willing to try it. Thanks,
