January 2019 Notes

New Year, new adventures! Firstly we wish all our followers, friends and family a very happy new year and thank you all sincerely for your continued support of us and Déise Camera Club. We look forward to showing you the results of our endeavours as we chase those illusive images we all wish to capture. Members are eager to set the pace and not even the winter weather has stopped us!


The theme for January was ABSTRACT and indeed we had a few moments when we just hadn’t a clue what was in front of us! Perfect result as this is the idea behind this theme. Abstract photography is a means of depicting a usual image in an unusual manner through close-up, manipulation or creative means.

Congratulations to John Murphy taking first place with ‘Crystal Vase’, 2nd place Angela Feldon with ‘Wildflower Garden’ and Mary Herlihy taking 3rd place with ‘Steps’.

Images included below.

Theme for February is FOG/MIST, not so difficult at the moment! Upcoming will be EYE[S], LOOK UP and SILHOUETTE.


Massive Congratulations to Frankie Lloyd who received an Associateship Distinction recently with the Irish Photographic Federation. This competition takes an enormous amount of talent and dedication to even be considered for approval. Frankie had it in spades! Concentrating his entry on the subject of flowers he set about creating his fifteen chosen images and what an explosion of colour and artistic creativity he produced! Fantastic award Frankie … richly deserved!
