All Seeing Me: Weekly Photo Challenge Night-time

§ September 26th, 2014

Been a while since I did one of these so it’s time to get the finger out and take part again. Night-time can be fun and is always a challenge for the photographer. I’ve chosen two shots both of which use long exposure on the tripod but they achieve very different results.

First up is a night-time view of Dublin City taken from a very unusual spot. I was also lucky to have a bright full moon partially obscured by the clouds. The bright dot below and left of the moon was Venus or Jupiter I think.

So in the night-time shot above there is no movement present unlike my second offering.

Fireworks!

You can have great fun with some wire wool and a willing volunteer!

§ September 25th, 2014

Just a little bit of fun from The Croke Park Classic; an American Football squad have up to 53 players and normally there’s groups of players together on the sideline. Here JJ Worton of the UCF Knights waits on the sideline at The Croke Park Classic in Dublin, Ireland. The UCF Knights were beaten by Penn State in a thrilling American Football match.

Mallow Camera Club: Susan Brown Talk in Mallow Camera Club

§ September 23rd, 2014

Mallow Camera Club is delighted to welcome renowned UK photographer Susan Brown FRPS to give a talk on Monday night next, 29 September.

Susan is acclaimed for her superb land and seascapes and especially the use of long exposures in both colour and monochrome.

Susan’s philosophy on photography is summed up in her statement on her website:
‘The eye does not always see things the way the camera does. I consider photography to be the art form of painting with available light.  Changing intensity, colour and direction of light results in a change of mood of the same elements. I respond to the intrinsic power of light that continuously alters shape and form. Further changes can be made by exposure and shutter speed, tools uniquely available to the photographer. Some of my images encapsulate a moment in time. Others are ethereal, dreamlike and considered, so requiring planning and long time exposures to see beneath the ‘seen’ image.’

Take a look at Susan’s work by visiting her website http://www.susanbrownphotography.co.uk

The talk will take place in the Mercy Centre Mallow, at 8 p.m.  Everyone welcome including photographers from other camera clubs.  Admission: €5

Mallow Camera Club: Bill Awarded Fellowship of the Irish Photographic Federation

§ September 21st, 2014

Congratulations to club chairman Bill Power who was awarded his Fellowship of the Irish Photographic Federation (FIPF) in Drogheda on Saturday last.  Bill’s panel of toadstools got unanimous approval from the judges, and the adjudicators’ comments afterwards were very complementary of the quality of the images and the presentation of the panel.

Bill expressed thanks to everyone who helped and supported him in the run up to his submitting his Fellowship panel for adjudication.  He said he especially wanted to thank club members who gave him constructive advice and assistance during the week in the run-up to the distinctions sitting.
