A proud day for the club today. There were a number of club members there today to support our nature photographers and we really enjoyed a day of great photography.
Below is a photo of the club members that were present today.
Tomorrow evening we have our photoshop hour starting at 7pm please bring your laptops with you.
This will be followed by a talk about long exposure photography and using filters for seascape photography in preparation for our weekend in Dingle next weekend by John Hooton and finally Theresa Collins will show us some of her images from her portfolio. I am sure that the members competing in the Nature competition today will bring their images and awards with them to show you! See you all tomorrow.
