Just a reminder that this Monday evening the club have an evening shoot in Doneraile Park. Meeting at 7pm sharp in the car park opposite the main entrance. New members are most welcome to come along and experienced members will be there helping out with camera settings etc. See you there…
Blackwater Photographic Society would like to thank Cork County Council for granting us €200 from the 2021 amenity grant. The money allocated went towards buying new studio equipment and will be a great asset to the club going forward.
Congratulations to the winners of our latest club competition held on our Facebook Page. Thanks to all Members who entered and also a huge thank you to our followers and the general public for their contribution in voting for your favourite.
Some Incredible news today as one of our Members Kieran O Mahony received his Associate distinction from the Irish Photographic Federation this morning. Kieran submitted a panel of 15 images on birds, printed and digital which also had to include a written statement on what he wanted to portray in the panel.
The following is what Kieran had to say about his panel……
This panel is to demonstrate my great love and passion for birds. Over the last few years I’ve enjoyed traveling to various locations both at home and abroad spending countless hours observing the different species in all types of weather. On each occasion always trying to improve both my photography skills as well as my field craft and understanding of each bird’s behaviour and the environments in which they live. On some occasions a very careful approach with a camouflage ghille suit worked but at other times a pop up hide and a much longer wait was required, especially for the more easily spooked and wary birds. Photographing any wildlife takes patience and indeed many days are not that productive but when everything comes together the results are so rewarding. Most of the bird images on my panel were taken in my local area.
We at Blackwater Photographic Society would like to invite you to sit back and watch our online exhibition. Due to restrictions we cannot showcase our work as prints, so we would like to share digital images of the work from our members ranging from Novice to Advanced.
We welcome you to share this presentation across your social media and if you would like to learn more about our club please email firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively by message to our facebook page.
