This Tuesday we will be having a still life and table top photography night so bring your cameras. We will set up some props and take some shots and try to get some interesting images. So if you have something you think will make an interesting shot and it is small enough to fit on a table bring it along.

If we have time we can maybe have a look at some of the shots taken on the night.

Well done to Damian Rosinski who won Octobers one shot competition themed “Connected”, Damian will now pick the theme for Novembers One Shot competition. I will send on details once Damian decides the theme.

Tallaght Photographic Society meet up every Tuesday over the summer and visit somewhere of photographic interest. From the Dublin mountains to Bullock Harbor there are lots of great places to see (and photograph) around Dublin. We meet up at Molloys car park in Tallaght Village at 7.30 each Tuesday  before heading off to our chosen location and we can carpool if anybody needs a lift.

To find out more about the destinations and to see some of the pictures from these trips please keep an eye on our facebook page.

TPS AGM Tuesday 16th May

 The National Club Finals were held in Mullingar this weekend where Tallaght came Joint 8th in colour and 10th in B&W. We did reasonably well considering we had not entered for a while and it was the first time for all who were helping select the images. Congratulations to Catchlight Camera Club who won the overall event with 2 fantastic panels of images. Next year we will try and improve on these positions which means we need lots of great images from all club members.
 
There was a distinction sitting also and I am delighted to say that Alastair Thacker was awarded his LIPF. Congratulations to Alastair, the standard was very high and its a great achievement. Hope fully when we meet back in September we can have a look at Alastair’s panel.
 
Our meeting this week in the Maldron will be our annual AGM. This is an important meeting for the club. Much will be decided about the club and the direction we will take next year. Please attend if you can, decisions will be made that affect all club members and if you are not there you will not be heard and will not be able to give your opinion. So please do attend if you can.
 
The following week will be the end of year party. This will be held in Molloys pub in Tallaght Village on the Friday evening so there will be no meeting on Tuesday. There will also be the prize giving ceremony and the awarding of the Photographer of the Year, the person who has achieved the most points over all the monthly competitions. It will be a great night so mark it in your diaries.

AGM & End of Year

There is no TPS meeting in the Maldron this week, in fact we are coming to the end of the TPS season. We will break for the summer at the end of May and instead of meeting in the Maldron we will meet up on a Tuesday (weather permitting) and begin our summer trips to places of photographic interest. More on this to follow!!
There is no TPS meeting this Tuesday but the committee will be meeting to prepare for the AGM which will take place on Tuesday the 16th of May in the Maldron. The AGM is an important meeting for all members and if you can attend you should. Much will be discussed and decided about the next TPS season which kicks off in September.  Decisions will be made that affect all club members and if you are not there you will not be able to voice your opinion so please do attend if you can.
So just to remind you again, there will be no meeting in the Maldron this coming Tuesday and the next time we meet up will be for the 16th for the AGM and then the end of year party on the 26th in Molloys pub in the village.
Finally, the National Club competition takes place in Mullingar next weekend. There is also distinction sittings and lots of things going on of photographic interest. It will definitely be an interesting day and TPS has entered 2 panels in the competition. So if anyone is around next weekend it is worth attending as it gives you an idea of the fantastic standard of photography from all over the country and the very high standards that are need to achieve successful distinctions.
