TPS Meeting Tuesday 9th January 2018

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.

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.
