A night amongst the Flowers

A very big thank you to Photographer Niamh Whitty for her visit to Blackwater Photography Society on Monday night. Niamh’s genuine, honest and very insightful journey on how she combined her love of flowers and photography to create her unique and award winning images was wonderfully narrated by the artist herself and had us all captivated. She also chronicled her various accreditation excursions, detailing the dedication, time and effort involved. This impressed everyone and even scared a few of us.
Thanks again Niamh for a genuinely lovely evening.

Also – thanks to everyone involved in organising the evening especially Jerry Creedon for proving the great lighting.

Geraldine’s prize from the Irish Examiner Readers Photography Competition 2015

A very big congratulations to BPS member Geraldine Dennehy on coming runner up at the Irish Examiner Readers Photography competition for 2015. Geraldine’s photo, taken at the Millstreet Horse show, was a real fast grab that is guaranteed to make you smile. Ger won a handsome money prize and a bottle of Champagne for her image.
We’d like to thank the Irish examiner for sending us a picture of Geraldine (and her daughter) receiving her prize in the Irish Examiner offices. Well done Geraldine.
