Future Indoor and outdoor meeting suspeded due to Covid-19
In respect of the ongoing Covid 19 situation, the club will not be holding any club meetings indoors or outdoors until ease of restrictions from government are announced. I'm sure we're all in agreement that it's the sensible thing to do.

Outing - Kilmacanogue Light trails
Untill the end of March at least, we will be suspending all indoor activities, but hope to continue with some outdoors instead. Obviously these meetings are discretionary as everyone's situation is different.
This Thursday 19th of March, we will be meeting at 8.00 pm by the road bridge in Kilmacanogue to photograph some light trails of traffic etc.

Speaker - Joanne Murphy - CANCELLED
On Thursday night we have Joanne Murphy who is a professional food photographer giving a talk. Over the course of her 20 year career, she has worked with some of the biggest names in the Irish food business such as Darina Allen and Neven Maguire. She has also photographed many cookbooks and worked with brands like Bord Bia, Glanbia, Lidl, Dunnes Stores, Monart and Pink Lady. We hope you can make it down as it's sure to work up an appetite for food if not for photography.

Outing to the Octagon
On Thursday night we will be going to the Octagon Ruin in the Glen of the Downs to do astrophotography, light painting etc. So if you intend to come, do bring along torches, coloured lights, sparklers etc.
It is advised to bring very warm clothes and hiking boots or the like as it might be a bit soggy in place underfoot. Head torches (if you have them) are also a good idea to see where you're going.
February 27, 2020
On Thursday we will be getting to vote on each others image which was themed Weather.
The first challenge of the year to photograph something that expresses a New Year / New Decade is for submission as a file on a usb stick by tomorrow.
Please also bring along an image for critique/feedback if you like, as there may be some extra time for this.

Speaker - Dermot Byrne
On Thursday we will have Dermot Byrne visiting us to give a talk. He is a professional wedding and fashion photographer who has won the IPPA photographer of the year award in the past. This should be an interesting and inspiring talk, especially if you have an interest in these areas of photography.
February 13, 2020
On Thursday we will be holding an evening where members can get portrait shots done for Profile pictures etc. So if you're looking for that portrait that helps set you apart, do come along. You can dress up if you like (e.g. business portrait or just for fun).

Outing to Vartry
On Thursday we will be doing Light Painting in Upper lake at Vartry. Light painting is using torches or any other brightly coloured lights to light up areas of a subject at night to get some interesting effects. These nights are always fun, so do wrap up and join us. Keep an eye on WhatsApp for confirmation of destination and potential car pooling at the club. If you do wish to car pool, please do not be shy of mentioning it on WhatApp.
