TPS Meeting Tuesday 11th October

Hi Folks,
Unfortunately we will not be going ahead with the inter club competition on Tuesday as planned. Clondalkin Camera club contacted me on Thursday to say that they were really struggling to get images for Tuesday and that they would have to pull out. We contacted Palmerstown to see if they would like to go ahead with Tallaght & Palmerstown but they said they would prefer to wait for the 3 clubs to be ready.
So we will postpone the inter club until the new year. Hopefully all 3 clubs will be in a better position to enter after Christmas.
So on Tuesday we will be looking at some club members successful Licentiate panels.

The Irish Photographic Federation awards distinctions on three levels – Licentiate, Associate and Fellow, in ascending order.

The Licentiate is the first of these levels and requires a panel of ten images to be presented. The panel may be general subject matter or in a specialist category and must demonstrate competence in key areas of camera skill.

We will look at what makes a successful panel and how a panel should be displayed and also highlight some areas that might cause a panel to fail.

Just a quick note regarding images for the shield competition.

We still need novice & intermediate members images for the National Shield the closing date for which is later this month. Can novice & intermediate please bring along images (B&W and Colour) on Tuesday evening as we had planned for the inter club as we still need them for the shield.
