League Competition Judging – March 29th

It’s time for March’s league competition judging this Tuesday, March 29th.  This month our very special guest judge is Michelle La Grue AIPF.  Michelle is a member of Malahide Camera Club and also an active IPF Council Member.  We had Michelle with us earlier in the season talking about her photography and showing us her wonderful images, so are delighted that she has agreed to judge our competition for us this month. Our meeting begins at 8pm sharp at the Maldron Hotel, Tallaght. Don’t forget that Tuesday, April 5th is entry night for the one shot competition.  April’s theme is “Movies” and was chosen by March’s one shot winner, Ben Russell. On April 5th, we will also be taking entries for the portrait competition.  Entries can include shots from our recent studio lighting night with models Marta and Michaela.  This competition will be judged by member, John Coffey, who is generously offering the winner a prize of two free hours of studio time in his own photographic studio, Edge Studio, right here in Tallaght. Best of luck to all entering our competitions 🙂
