TPS Meeting Tuesday, 5th February 2019

This Tuesday at our club meeting, member Karl Bergin will be giving us a talk.  This time though instead of showing us how to take and edit portrait photographs he is going to speak about his own photography journey.  Given the high standard of Karl’s photography I’m sure this is going to be a very interesting talk….

February One Shot

The theme for February’s One Shot is “Emotions” and will be judged by January’s winner, Brenda Sheridan on Tuesday 12th February.  Bring your entries on the night on USB and give them to Maureen.

For our newer members The One Shot is a themed, fun competition that we run every month.  You can enter one photo portraying your interpretation of the theme set.  There are no rules apart from you must bring your entries on a USB to the meeting by 8pm on the night and hand it to a committee member (usually Maureen).  The One Shot is judged on the night and the winner sets the theme for and judges the next One Shot.  The winner also receives a voucher for Harvey Norman’s in Nutgrove.  

Showcase Gallery on Website

We all know that we have a huge amount of talent in the Club so it’s time to show it off.  We started with the exhibition in October and now we are planning on setting up a showcase gallery on our website.   

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

·       Sports

Photos should be provided, in digital form, on club nights from now 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
