Wanting to travel with the perfect combination of weight, size, and versatility, Zachary took his Fuji X100S, Nikon Df, and three fast prime lenses. One of the highlighted stops along their trip was Galway. A bustling city filled with university students on the Irish west coast. Here are his photos as well as tips to getting the right shot:

Tip: When shooting with the X100S at night don’t be afraid to crank up the ISO.

Tech specs: ISO 5000, F/2.0 @ 1/60sec

The Irish countryside is made up of rocky grasslands. Sheep and castles are sprinkled throughout the landscape.

If you ever get a chance, visit Ireland. Its sheer beauty and friendly citizens make the journey well worth it. Medieval castles, hearty cuisine, sleepy villages, and bustling city pubs make up Ireland’s character.

And oh, bring an umbrella! 😉
