TPS Meeting Tuesday, 19th February 2019

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 tpscompeitions@gmail.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
· Sports
· 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 info@tallaghtphotographicsociety.com

Beginners Workshop

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 info@tallaghtphotographicsociety.com

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….

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.
