April 2018 Meeting update

We had a very informative club meeting again this month in The Park Hotel Dungarvan. Many excursions were discussed with the highlight being the club away trip later in the year. Reminder to members to secure your place as soon as possible, we want to make sure you all get a bed!

CLUB COMPETITION

Congratulations to three members who shared first place with April’s theme ODD ONE OUT.

Brigid Coffey with ‘One of the Girls’, John Murphy with ‘The Changeling’ and Noreen O’Brien with ‘Kiwi Spritzer’.

The monthly theme for May is BLUE HOUR, that lovely blue light seen before sunrise and after sunset. You’d be surprised that despite all the wet weather, we have been getting some beautiful early morning and late evening light also. So fingers crossed for some more seasonal weather soon during the day also!

We have some interesting upcoming club competition themes that can be explored from now on so members will be busy searching for creative images depicting SIGN(s), ABOUNDANCE and MULTI-COLOURED to mention just a few! Thinking hats on gang!

MEMBER PRESENTATION

Club member Noreen O’Brien gave us a very interesting presentation showing her photographic interest in capturing a wide variety of genre. She likes telling stories by linking images together in album style. Thank you Noreen!

NEXT MEETING

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 8th May 2018 in The PARK HOTEL, Dungarvan at 7.30pm.New members are always welcome to call in and see what we get up to!

March 2018 Update

We had a very busy March meeting in The Park Hotel with lots of activities to discuss and prepare for. Members are looking forward to the longer daylight hours to remain out later chasing those wonderful images portraying all aspects of our countryside.

CLUB COMPETITION

The competition theme for March was MONTHLY: ANIMAL (one animal)  and QUARTERLY: OPEN COLOUR.  Another fantastic array of images to try and chose just three from but chose we had to!

Congratulations to John Murphy with ‘Watchful’ taking first place in the monthly competition, ANIMAL.  Angela Feldon came 2nd with ‘Shadow Walker’ and Mary Herlihy taking joint third with both her entries consecutively ‘My name is Nova’ and ‘I’m Frozen’.

Congratulations to Denis Ryan 1st place with ‘Parkland’ in OPEN COLOUR, 2nd John Murphy with ‘Always Smiling’ and 3rd Mary Herlihy with ‘Caoimhe’. Well done to everyone… great competitions!

April’s theme is ODD ONE OUT. Another interesting theme to try and negotiate around! Go for it!

May’s theme is BLUE HOUR, image must be taken at that magical time of day!

MEMBER PRESENTATION

Club member Angela Feldon gave us a very interesting presentation of a selection of recent images from her trip to Italy. It was inspiring to see the style of images Angela has a way of seeing and capturing that brings us to the centre of life in her chosen destination. Thanks Angela!

NEXT MEETING

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 10th April in The PARK HOTEL, Dungarvan at 7.30pm.New members are always welcome to call in and see what we get up to!
