Tomorrow night we have the second part of our focus on portraiture photography. As discussed last week the members will be split into 2 groups. The first group will arrive just before 7.30 and the shoot will start at 7.30 sharp. Please do not be late as the guys will be busy and will want to make sure everyone gets enough shooting time. The set up will be 4 models  and 4 different light set ups. The second group will arrive at 8.45 and this will give the guys enough time to have a quick cup of coffee and begin the second shoot at 9.00. As above please arrive on time and prepared for the shoot. Try to think of some ideas for the shoot and if you have a prop you would like to use by all means bring it along.

TPS Meeting Tuesday 4th April

This Tuesday Michelle Le Grue from Malahide Camera Club will be giving a talk and a demo of some lighting equipment. Michelle runs a company called Nicelight which sells all sorts of lighting equipment from outdoor flash systems to light wands to modifiers, triggers & receivers, in fact they cover everything to do with lighting. Michelle will be giving a talk and a demo of some of the equipment. I think Michelle will have some items for sale on the night that might be of interest so if anyone is thinking of investing in a flash or lighting system it might be an idea to take some cash on Tuesday. Here is a link to the Nicelight website https://nicelight.eu/   I know  that at the recent Photographer of the Year finals where Nicelight were a sponsor they sold out of some of their Speedlight’s amongst other items. I know lots of people in the club are interested in this type of photography so it should be a great night. Don’t forget the about the April “One Shot”. The theme this month is “Foodie Still Life” and will be held on the 17th of this month. Paul Maxwell won the March round so […]
