This Tuesday Neil O’Reilly LIPF will give a talk on wildlife photography. Neil will offer advice and tips on how to improve your wildlife and nature shots and the equipment used to get decent nature and wildlife shots. Neil will also look at some locations around Ireland where there is a chance of seeing some interesting wildlife. We are also hoping to make a trip this month to Avoca whenever we get a good weekend. Avoca is a great spot for seeing Red Kites. Red Kites are a large bird of prey that were pushed to extinction here in Ireland back in the 1900’s. They were re-introduced to Ireland 10 years ago and are now thriving and Avoca is probably the best place in Ireland to see these magnificent birds. It is also a very picturesque village with plenty of photographic opportunities. More on this to follow when we decide on dates etc.
This coming Tuesday our guest speaker is Rodney O’Callaghan. Rodney is a landscape photographer based in County Cork and has been taking photographs since 2006 when he purchased his first digital camera. Rodney’s photography has evolved over the years and now runs workshops here in Ireland and abroad. Rodney will be talking abut his photography and will show us some of his images and share his tips on how to improve your landscape and seascape photographs.
This coming Tuesday we meet back in the Maldron Hotel for the first time in 2018. We also have our first guest speaker of 2018, Stephen Crozier of 360 DPI. Stephen is an expert on all things printing and will be sharing some tips and advise on how to get the best prints from your images. Taking a picture is one thing but printing a high quality image is not as easy as it seems. Stephen has printed TPS panels in the past, most recently the shield, and has always done a fantastic job. Many photographers would also get their distinctions panels printed by Stephen as they trust his knowledge when it comes to printing. Its sure to be an interesting talk and no doubt Stephen will have plenty of tips on how to get the best out of your prints.
