Club members will have pictures for sale at the exhibition, these were taken locally, as well as further afield in locations as diverse as Africa and Australia. We will have landscapes, people and events in our catalogue along with wildlife and domestic animals, so please come along and support the club.
Our meeting of June 2nd was held on the sun drenched Banna Strand, local photographer David Hogan kindly ran a workshop on out flash photography for the club members, he also provided us with two drop dead gorgeous models for the shoot. Andrea Collins who recently represented Kerry in a national modelling competition and newcomer Natalie Herbert-Dennehy made up the other half of the duo.
The club got to use professional studio gear on the shoot and we all came away with stunning photographs of the models and the location looked as good as any scene that one would see on a deserted Caribbean beach. One of the techniques that we mastered on the night was getting a sunburst behind the models shoulders, this is very difficult to achieve without the powerful lights that David brought along on the night.
On Thursday the 9th we had a club outing to the picturesque pier of Meenogahane which looks out over the Shannon Estuary and Loop Head in the distance. We were blessed with a glorious evening light and came away happy with both the landscape and wildlife shots we took on the night.
Our next meeting will take place on Thursday 16th of June and we will have two themes at the meeting to judge. The first them is flowers postponed for the June 2nd meeting and the second them is action\movement. There are three more meetings after this to round off the club year and the themes are Self Portrait, Summer and an Open Competition.
