March 31st – League Competition Judging

This Tuesday, March 31st is league competition judging! This month we have not one, but two competition judges, Malahide Camera Club’s Ita Martin and Tony Murray both LIPF.  Ita and Tony are longtime friends and joined Malahide CC together.  They say two heads are better than one, so were looking forward to meeting both judges on Tuesday! A reminder also that April’s Oneshot competition theme is Architecture and entries are to be in on Tuesday, April 7th and the winner will be picked by last month’s winner John Sexton! IPN’s Photofest Ireland 2015 is taking place on Sunday, April 26th from 10am to 6pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel’s Conference Centre in Santry.  Photofest is Ireland’s largest photography and imaging trade show and will include trade stalls from the biggest names in photography equipment and accessories including Nikon and Canon.  There are also seminars and lectures by Irish and international speakers.  Admission to Photofest is FREE WITH TICKETS ONLY!!  However your free tickets can be ordered through the website photofestireland.com.  Whether you’re buying from the trade stalls or attending the seminars it is a great day out!

Our guest speaker this week, Tuesday, March 10th is Carl Cutland FIPF from Portlaoise Camera Club.  Carl does spectacular things with water droplets as you will see by the amazing images on his website!  Carl got his Associateship with the IPF in May 2012 and then just a few months later succeeded in achieving his Fellowship in September that year!  Carl will be showing us his work including his FIPF panel and will also be explaining the techniques and equipment needed for taking his unique water droplet images.
