This coming Tuesday we have Daragh Muldowney as our guest speaker. Daragh’s interest in photography originally developed, when he completed a Scuba Diving course in 1992, where he was awe struck by the experience of being under water. Life under the sea seemed like another world, where he made an instant connection with the elements. Shortly after Daragh bought a Canon camera and the rest as they say is history. Daragh has travelled far and wide from the Sahara to Iceland and has captured stunning images from these contrasting landscapes and Daragh will be showing some of these images with us on Tuesday. No doubt it will be a great talk. Here is a link to Daragh’s website Tuesday is also league entry night so be sure to have your images ready for Tuesday. As we have a guest speaker please have your images mounted and labelled prior to bringing to the club as we do not want to disturb the speaker. Digital images can be sent to can you also please email a digital copy of your print entries. We need to keep these images for possible selection in future IPF competitions.
