A vist from Paddy Barker of Barker Photographic

This Monday 7th March, we have a visit from Barker Photographic owner Paddy Barker. Barker Photographic Ltd. Is a Cork based Importer and Retailer of Quality Photographic products and Camera Accessories – virtually everything for the Professional and keen Photographer. He has built the business over two decades by providing great products, coupled with good stocks at keen prices and friendly efficient customer service. Amongst other subjects, Paddy will talk to us about the various types of photo paper and the differences it makes to your printed image. This is a very fitting subject after our recent nights on taking photos (model shoot), editing photos (photoshop for beginners etc) and now printing you images, which sees the whole process through from start to finish. Printing is something we haven’t been able to spend much time on recently so please make sure to support our club on this night. it’s sure to be interesting and informative.
