This Tuesday we will be looking at preparing images for the monthly league competition. We have had some new members joining in recent weeks and Tuesday night will be for the new members to explain how to prepare your images in line with the club rules on competition entry. So we will look at re-sizing images, we will look at saving images with a view to printing and we will also look at some basic edits that will improve your image.
We have had a couple of nights showing how to mount images onto the mounting boards so will briefly explain this process and can have a demo of cutting a bevelled mount board.
This Tuesday we have Gerry Kerr of Celbridge Camera Club as our guest speaker. Gerry judged one of the monthly league competitions last year and did a great job that night. Gerry was awarded his Fellowship by the IPF last year for a stunning panel of images and Gerry will be talking about the panel , how he put it together and the thought process behind it. Its sure to be a fantastic night so be sure not to miss it.
On Tuesday we will also have the one shot competition. The theme for this month is “Pets” and it will be judged by last months winner Paddy Sayers. Remember the winner of the one shot will receive a canvas print from Harvey Normans (proud sponsors of the one shot) so get you camera out and get snapping!! The one shot is a digital image competition only, no prints. You can bring your image on the night on a USB stick. Please have the image ready and easily accessed on the USB stick.
This Tuesday is the monthly league competition judging night. Our guest judge is Joe Doyle AIPF AFIAP from Malahide camera club. The meeting will start at 8pm sharp. Its sure to be a great night. Good luck to everyone who has entered.
This Tuesday our very own Steve McGrane (LIPF) will give a talk on his photography. Steve specialises in Landscapes & Seascapes and is usually up at the crack of dawn trying to get that super sunrise that will make a cracking photo. Steve will talk about technique & equipment and where one might go to try and get a good landscape/seascape.
Steve also uses filters such as neutral density and graduated filters and will explain how to use them to help get a better image. It will be a great talk and if anyone is interested in trying this type of photography be sure not to miss it!!
