We are NOT meeting in the Maldron Hotel on Tuesday the 14th. Instead Mark Pollock will lead us on a walkabout in Tallaght. This will afford members the opportunity to get to know the local photography spots and also take photographs to put forward for consideration for our 2020 Calendar. Meet at the car park at Molloys Bar at 7.30pm.
One Shot and Party
We have a slight change to this month’s one shot. We will have it at the party on the 24th May. Please print your entry and bring it along on the night for Paddy to judge. The theme is “Composite Photo”.
A big thank you to Andrew and team for all the hard work in preparing the panels and giving up their time to present them in Mullingar over the weekend.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday.Read On

This Tuesday we have 3 things going on in the club:
1. We are having an EGM to vote on two proposals (agenda sent by mail). Remember this is your club and these are your decisions to make so please come along on Tuesday to vote.
2. If the EGM finishes early we will have a members constructive criticism session! If you have any photos that you think maybe you would like to enter in the league but are unsure about them, bring them along on USB and we will show them onscreen. You can talk about them or keep it anonymous, it’s your choice. Bring in a max of 10 images, depending on how many are brought in we might limit how many are shown
3. Tuesday is League Entry night so don’t forget to bring your printed and digital images. Information re labelling of images in post dated 16th April.

This Tuesday at our weekly meeting in the Maldron Hotel we welcome Paul Stanley Stanley FIPF EFIAP/s EsFIAP. Paul is a member of Dublin Camera Club and has been involved in photography nationally and internationally for more than 30 years. He also serves on the IPF committee and was a founder member of Peoples Photography.
Paul is going to talk to us about how the IPF Distinction process works so this will be of benefit to anyone going for distinction whether for the first time or not. He is also going to show us some successful panels.
Notice of upcoming events:
Tuesday 22nd April:
EGM to put forward two Proposals to the members – see attached for Agenda. We would appreciate it if as many members as possible attended this EGM. Remember this is your club and these decisions are ultimately yours. Members will be asked to vote on both proposals on the night. If you have any questions you would like to ask before the EGM please feel free to ask a member of the Committee.
Members Constructive Criticism
Following the EGM we will have a members Constructive Criticism session. The idea of this is that members bring in some photos on USB that they would like critiqued and show them onscreen. Members in the audience can put forward their Constructive if they have some. So, if you have images that you’re not sure about bring them along and we’ll show them. This can be done anonymously if you would prefer.
Monthly League entry night
Please have your prints mounted and ready and your projected resized and named correctly. Instructions below:
Printed images must be presented on mounting boards of 20×16 inches (51×41 cm).
All submissions should have a completed competition entry label affixed to the back. Please affix the label to the Upper left hand corner on the back of the image so the judge knows which way up the image goes
Digital images should be submitted in jpeg format resized to 2,400 pixels on the longest side with a resolution of 240 dpi. This will allow the club to add the image to a database from which it can be considered for entry into future IPF club competitions.
Please send images to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before entry night or bring them along on USB on entry night
Members are asked to adhere to the following naming convention:
e.g. 12345-Advanced-Sunrise-Mono Print
