Tuesday, Febrary at the TPS

This Tuesday, we are running our first meeting of Photographers Anonymous.  Members, please bring along your images on a USB stick, cd or dvd, and we will show them to the other club members.  No names will be mentioned (unless you want to) and perhaps our other members might comment or critique the images being shown.  It should be a fun, casual night with plenty of time for tea and coffee along the way!

TPS Updates

At Tuesday’s TPS meeting, were going to take a look at IPF Distinctions and what makes a successful Distinction panel.  I would like to ask all of our IPF distinction holders to bring in their panels if possible and perhaps to say a bit about how you put the panel together. It is also One-Shot Competition time again.  This month’s theme is Excitement and will be judged by last month’s winner, Kevin Maguire.  For the first time one-shot entries can be submitted digitally on disc or USB key.  Kevin will view the images on the club laptop in private and choose a winner.  We can then view the entries and announce the winner who will choose and judge next month’s theme! Ireland’s greatest Roller Derby team, the Dublin Roller Girls Vs Belfast Roller Derby and bonus bout, DRG Reserves Vs The Dockyard Destroyers at the National Basketball Arena, Tallaght.  Doors open at 1pm, the first bout begins at 2.30pm and the second bout is at 4.45pm.  Our very own Sharon Lunney (AKA Annie Cleave’er Bitz) is part of the DRG team.  This would be a good opportunity to try your hand at sports photography and Sharon has offered the following […]
