October 2018 update

Wonderful weather, despite Storm Callum who brought fantastic coastal opportunities for photographs, while staying well back from danger of course! Check out those autumnal colours bursting through everywhere, just beautiful!

Members continue going out together eager to capture the changing of the seasons. We have had a busy few months and look forward to more trips and competitions ahead.


Huge congratulations to club member Kieran Russell   who was listed among the finalists in the ‘Clean Coasts Love Your Coast’ Photo Competition recently.  This is the ninth year of this competition, capturing the essence of the Irish coast under five categories depicting  Coastal Heritage, Coastal Landscape, People & the Coast, Wildlife & the Coast and Underwater. Super image Kieran!

Great images put forward by everyone again, well done!

Theme for November is AGING. Another interesting theme that we are looking forward to seeing how members interpret this in images. Upcoming will be Vignette and Textures.


Last month Luke O’Brien gave us a wonderful presentation of a sample of his work. Luke expertly captured some great sporting moments and we were also treated to some Australian landscapes as well as a selection of local landmarks.

This month Jim Kennedy presented his fantastic collection of amazing landscapes. We enjoyed some beautiful images from trips abroad as well as wild life photos from closer to home.

Thanks to both members, and indeed all who have made presentations already, it is interesting to view the different genre and styles of each individual. A wonderful teaching and learning experience!


Our next meeting will be on 13th November at 7.30pm in The Park Hotel, Dungarvan. New members are always welcome! Reminder that if you are interested in learning more about photography that night classes are available in Dungarvan, check out your local colleges re same.
