Deise Camera Club Activity in August

Great to see so many members at the meeting full of ideas and adventure after spending some time

abroad or travelling the roads of Ireland over the last month. We look forward to enjoying many

more photos of your travels and seeing the sun really does shine for more than a few hours here and there! This summer you gotta grab your chances, drop the dishes and go exploring! Rain, mist and clouds do make sensational images also but we have a whole winter to do that…well at least the rain is warm this time of year!!

CLUB MONTHLY COMPETITION

The theme for August was HOLIDAY/TRAVEL. Wonderful selection of different takes on the theme. Congratulations to Irina Duane who came 1st with ‘Nun Other than a Tourist’, Joint 2nd place was shared between Noreen O’Brien with ‘Siesta by the Sea’, Mary Herlihy with ‘Bonita Burano’ and Jim Kennedy with ‘Views of Vietnam’.

Next month, September we have two categories again: monthly theme is THREE and the Quarterly is SEASCAPES

Brilliant challenge to make us think and compose an image with a theme like THREE! Any concept is acceptable once it depicts the theme. Useful to note that ABSTRACT is coming up for the October monthly challenge.

NEXT CLUB MONTHLY MEETING

Our next meeting will be on the second Tuesday as usual, 13th September at 7.30pm in Town Hall Theatre, Dungarvan. New members are always welcome to join us and see what we get up to! REMINDER to members to check out emails and text for upcoming club events, trips away and Ed Tech nights. Membership is now due also!

July Update including Monthly Photographic Competition

Another great attendance of members at the monthly meeting of Deise Camera Club. We also wish to extend a warm welcome to Treas and Bernard joining us for the first time, looking forward to sharing our interest in photography with you! Inspite of the less than sunny summer weather members have been out and about taking photographs. There are a huge variety of summer festivals, open gardens, music events, sporting engagements and of course the always available road trip along the coast or climbing the mountains so members are certainly not short of places to go and photos to capture! Any events are always a means to challenging ourselves to try different skills and achieve another level of understanding about light and composition as well as just enjoying the company of like minded people! Keep an eye out for information on club trips over the coming months! CLUB MONTHLY COMPETITION July’s theme was CELEBRATIONS. Congratulations to John Foley taking 1st place with ‘Champagne Lady’, Joint 2 nd place shared between Mary Herlihy with ‘When Three isn’t a Crowd’ and John Murphy with ‘A Very Precious Gift’.
