Our next meeting is to take place this Thursday the 7th of April and our photo theme for the meeting is Macro, which is a photographic term from close up photography. You don't need any special equipment our members use everything from a basic point and shoot camera up to the very latest Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras. Guests from all over the county are always welcome to attend, in fact our members come from all over North Kerry and Tralee.
The club is undertaking an outing to Valentia Island on Sunday April 17th weather permitting, we plan to meet in the Royal Hotel in Knightstown at 11 am sharp and we will kick off proceedings with some light refreshments. The days itinerary is full, we plan to visit amongst others the Slate Quarry, the Dinosaur Footprints, the site of the first transatlantic cable entry point, the Dolmen Rock on Geokaun Mountain, Fogher Cliffs and Portmagee where more refreshments are in order.
At our meetings we cater for beginners and advanced photographers, we cover topics like photo composition, camera techniques, use of flash, portrait photography, landscape photography along with family photography and how to take a great flower shot. We also do practical workshops at our meetings where we get to use studio equipment and we also do slide shows of members work from time to time.
