The night shoot to Mallow Castle was a great success despite a shower which threatened to end it prematurely.The rain shower coupled with bright moonlight made for great images of the stone walkways. Around 25 photographers took part on the night.
Following the cancellation of the night shoot last week we are giving the night shoot another go (weather permitting).
Plan B will be a competition using Images Straight From The Camera no manipulation in Photoshop etc.
If time permits Sean Murphy will show the basics of video editing. As most SLRs and mobile phones can now capture video in high definition it is good to to be able to edit and present your videos properly.
Blackwater Photographic society recently took part in the SACC 2014 Interclub competition in Kilkenny. This competition is open to all clubs affiliated to the SACC. This was our clubs first competition. We entered all three panel competitions (Colour Print, B&W Print and Projected panel). We finished up 7th overall and 4th in the black and white out of 12 competing clubs which was really great for us, especially considering our club was formed just a short 7 months ago. Thank you to all our members who submitted their work for the competition and also a special thanks to everyone who worked on getting the panels competition ready, there were a few very late nights involved but worth it in the end.
