This week in the Maldron Hotel member Mark Pollock has agreed to show his photographs following a lot of interest after his “Show and tell” after the Christmas break. Mark has some fabulous photos of the Irish Air Corps in training and at work. We have a mine of talent in our club and unfortunately sometimes we only get to see a little of that at our Monthly League competitions and if you happen to be following someone on Facebook or Flickr etc… We have tried over the last couple of months to showcase that talent by getting our own members to show their work. The support for this has been great with the numbers of members turning up on these nights, and we sincerely thank you for this. It is very important that we support our own as well as outside photographers that we get to speak.
Monthly League Competition
Remember tomorrow night is also hand in night for February’s Monthly League Competition. Please have your prints mounted and ready to be handed in to Andrew and bring your projected entries along on USB. Please also email digital copies of your printed entries to email@example.com. We ask you to do this so we have a pool of photographs to choose from for National Competitions that we enter as a club.
Showcase Gallery on Website
Speaking of showcasing our clubs talent…..We are setting up a gallery on our website to do just that! The showcase will have two divisions Advanced and Non-Advanced and will have a number of photography categories. We are calling on all members to submit, up to three of their favourite photographs for each category. Categories are as follows:
· Landscape / seascape
· Nature / wildlife
· Portrait / studio / people
· Close-up / macro
· Street / culture / travel / cityscape
· Black and White
Photos should be provided, in digital form, on club night, until the end of February. Please include your membership number and title in the file name. Photos should be taken within the last two years and you must be a paid-up member to participate. If you have any questions please ask Alice who is co-ordinating the initiative or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A beginners workshop will be run in Tallaght Library on March 30th from 10am – 4pm by Alice O Brien. Anyone interested can talk to Alice at the club or email email@example.com
See you tomorrow at 8pm sharp.
