On the night we had a magnificent turnout for the occasion and we are extremely grateful to the library for providing some delicious cakes and buns that was washed down with tea and coffee by the guests. The club wishes to thank the County Librarian Tommy O’Connor for providing the Exhibition space and a big thank you goes to Grace O’Donnell for giving the club time from her busy schedule to perform the Opening.
This weekend the club will be helping the Fenit Seabreeze committee to document their festival; we will be providing people to photograph all of the activities happening over the two days that the festival runs. The events to be covered at the festival include, the All Ireland Stone Skimming Championship, An Air Display, Farmers Market, Dog Show, Tug of War, Terrier Racing the Grand National Donkey Derby and a big programme of Maritime and Heritage Talks.
This week I will also briefly mention the Exposure Triangle which is made up of the ISO Setting, the Aperture and the Shutter Speed. The photographer will use a combination of these settings to achieve the optimal setting to take the photograph. Increasing the ISO will increase the amount of grain in a picture and an increase will also decrease the shutter speed required for a correct exposure assuming the aperture remains fixed. Shutter Speed will determine the about of blur in a picture, faster shutter speeds are required to capture sharp images of moving objects. The aperture controls who much of a picture is in focus. Low aperture numbers give a shallow depth of field and the higher the number the more of the picture is in focus.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 14th of June at 8 pm in the Ardfert Golf Club.
