Unfortunately we will not be going ahead with the inter club competition on Tuesday as planned. Clondalkin Camera club contacted me on Thursday to say that they were really struggling to get images for Tuesday and that they would have to pull out. We contacted Palmerstown to see if they would like to go ahead with Tallaght & Palmerstown but they said they would prefer to wait for the 3 clubs to be ready.
So we will postpone the inter club until the new year. Hopefully all 3 clubs will be in a better position to enter after Christmas.
So on Tuesday we will be looking at some club members successful Licentiate panels.
The Irish Photographic Federation awards distinctions on three levels – Licentiate, Associate and Fellow, in ascending order.
The Licentiate is the first of these levels and requires a panel of ten images to be presented. The panel may be general subject matter or in a specialist category and must demonstrate competence in key areas of camera skill.
We will look at what makes a successful panel and how a panel should be displayed and also highlight some areas that might cause a panel to fail.
Just a quick note regarding images for the shield competition.
We still need novice & intermediate members images for the National Shield the closing date for which is later this month. Can novice & intermediate please bring along images (B&W and Colour) on Tuesday evening as we had planned for the inter club as we still need them for the shield.
This Tuesday we will be having a beginners night for new members at the club. We have quite a few new members and it will be a chance for you to ask any questions regarding competitions, preparing images for competitions, salons etc. or any other topics that you want covered.
We can look at how to cut a bevelled mount board for displaying images and how to save your images in the correct format for the monthly league competitions.
If you have any topics you would like to see covered please email me.
See you on Tuesday

Summer is drawing to a close and the evening’s are getting shorter but don’t worry as this means our weekly meetings resume in the Maldron Hotel every Tuesday evening. We meet at 8pm every Tuesday and we have a busy schedule between September & Christmas.
We will have guest speakers who will talk about and show their photography, we will have practical nights and we will have of course our competition nights where club members are encouraged to enter their photographs to be judged by an independent judge usually from another camera club.
We are also hoping to run a beginners course in photography after Christmas for new members and any other club members interested in attending.
Membership for the year will be €75 and there will be a €2 cover charge on the night.
So looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday night and any new members are very welcome. If anyone has any queries please send an email to this email address.

Due to bad weather we were not able to head to Carton House last Tuesday so we will be trying to head to Carton House this Tuesday and the forecast at the moment looks good for Tuesday evening.
For our last outing we will meet at Molloys at 7.30pm and hopefully the weather will be kinder to us and we can get out to Carton House.
This Tuesday we will be heading to Carton House in Maynooth. Located 20 minutes from Dublin Carton House is a 1,100 acre parkland estate with lots of interesting photo opportunities. There is the iconic picturesque boathouse and the Tyrconnell Tower as well as Carton House it self which is a fine example of a Georgian Mansion.
The grounds and parkland with its lakes and waterways will make for some nice shots also.
We will meet at Molloys at 7.30 sharp and can car pool if necessary.
