Club outing Ennis

Posted by on Apr 25, 2015

Colin passed on the map for the outing in Ennis this Monday coming. Unfortunately I will be working but I will be thinking jealous thoughts while you are all out taking photos. I hope everyone enjoys themselves and I look forward to seeing the photos from the trip.

Everything is kicking off at the Hands sculpture at Ennis Cathedral at 7.30pm.

A lovely sunny evening

Posted by on Apr 16, 2015

Well I hope everyone is taking full advantage of the great weather we are having. I arrived home from work this evening to see lovely strips of light flooding through the picket fence in my front garden and I knew it was time to take out he macro lens and shoot some daisies. For any of you who do not know, daisies are my favorite flowers for photography. Simple, ubiquitous and easily overlooked, daisies are fascinating. From the wonderful contrast of their golden centers against the green grass to the repetition of their pink tipped petals, they form a blanket of photographic possibility across the whole lawn. Below are some of my photos from today. I would encourage all of you to get out and roll in the grass a little too. You never know what wonderful images lie hidden in your lawn.

Bridges Assignment

Posted by on Apr 15, 2015

Well folks I just realised that I will not be here for this mondays meeting. I will be off working in Sweden. As you might expect, this came as a bit of a disappointment since I just spent the last 3 hours out taking pictures of bridges so instead of waiting I thought I would post my 3 shots here and maybe someone might get some ideas from them (possibly on what not to do :-) ) . Anyway, I hope you are all out in this lovely weather and I am sorry I will miss all of the great shots on monday.

Hopefully the colours are not too out of whack ( I really need to calibrate my new monitor )

Posted by on Apr 4, 2015

Herbert Knowles proudly passed on this information for all of us as his son in law Simon McGuire, who created and manages the yearly Limerick Film Festival, invites you our members to attend some or all of this years events. Anyone with an interest in cameras is welcome to attend any or all of the events from April 23rd to April 25 incl.

All events take place in the Millenium Theatre which is on the Limerick Institute of Technology Campus. Admission to all events is free. Guest speakers will give talks at some of the events. Whelan’s Cameras are sponsoring the festival and they will be running events in their lecture space over their shop.

The final event, on the 25th April is the Millenium Theatre 6th Annual Limerick Film Festival Awards Show, at which clips of the winning short films are shown. The awards are then presented. This will be hosted by Patrick Hogan.

All are invited to the After-Festival Party in the George Boutique Hotel in O’Connell Street. Finger food will be provided.

This would be a great chance for members of the camera club to have another get-together.

Full details of the Festival are available on www.limerickfilmfestival.net

Thank you Herbert for passing on the invite and I hope you all take the time to drop in on the festival for a bit of networking and perhaps some inspiration.
