TPS Meeting Tuesday, 10th September 2019

This Tuesday we will have our annual “Show and Tell”. This is a night where members get an opportunity to show some of the photos they’ve taken during the summer. It’s also a chance to share new places/things/methods for us to shoot. About 20 photos each would be great.

It is also the 2nd Tuesday of the month which means “One Shot” night. We’re trying something a little different this year: instead of the winner picking the theme each month, we have set all the themes for the year. The thinking behind this is that members will have a more time to work on their entries. The winner will still judge the following months competition and get a prize of a 20 euro printing voucher in Harvey Norman, Rathfarnham. This month’s these is “Abstract”. BTW in case you didn’t notice the list of themes is at the bottom of this and all emails….so no excuses… Looking forward to seeing you all with your photos!

End of Season!

Party and Awards
It’s that time of the year again!! Time to party and find out the results of the League. On Friday 24th we will have our end of year party and prize giving ceremony in Molloys, kicking off at 20.30. There will be a change to “Photographer of the Year”. This year there will be a photographer of the year in each section – so 3 trophies. There will be prizes for the winners in each of the 3 sections of competition in Novice, Intermediate and Advanced divisions. Fridays party will be the highlight of the year and is always a great night so pencil it in to your diary!!

One Shot
We have a slight change to this month’s one shot. We will have it at the party. Please print your entry and bring it along on the night for Paddy to judge. The theme is “Composite Photo”.

We are looking for volunteers to organise a stall for TPS at Tallafest on 22nd June. Unfortunately they’re not supplying gazebos or tables this year due to insurance reasons so we’d have to arrange that ourselves. If you’re interested let me or any of the committee members know.

No Meeting
We are NOT meeting next Tuesday night. (If you’re free/bored feel free to organise a get together through the WhatsApp outings group).

Tuesday Outings
Our Tuesday outings will kick off on the 28th. More on that next week!

Meet at the car park at Molloys Bar at 7.30pm.
