Thurles and Environs Camera Club

Last week April 2nd the chairman welcomed Jim Finn F.I.A.P a former chairman of the club who visited us to judge the entries of our Faces/Portraiture competition..

He had a big task as there were over 100 images consisting of colour and black & white.

Prior to the judging the chairman congratulated Mark Fitzell and Cliodagh Blake whose images that were successful at the recent TV 3 competitions on display. Mark’s portraiture image won the March competition while Cliodagh got runner spot in the February competition

Prior to the judging Jim gave us an insight into his own portraiture photography which consisted of some brilliant varirty. During the judging he gave a brief commentary on each image and answered the questions that arose.It was a very informative evening especially for our new members.

The results are as follows:

Established section

Colour: 1st Eileen Quinlan, 2nd Siobhan Kennedy and 3rd John O’Loughlin

Black & White: 1st Emma Mills, 2nd Sarah Morris and 3rd Jim Freeman

New members section

Colour: 1st Dick Walsh, 2nd Aislinn Cronin and 3rd Mark Fitzell; Black & White: 1st Mark Fitzell, 2nd Aislinn Cronin and 3rd Dick Walsh.

On Wednesday Trevor O’Toole has kindly agreed to do a session on Raw/Jpeg. These two methods offer a varied difference in the way images can be later worked on and this session should be of a major interest to all members.

All members are encouraged to get images of the River Suir /its environs. We look forward to receiving images in both colour and Black & white to be submitted by April 23rd . Our last competition being Landscape/seascape to be submitted on May 14th so keep the camera clicking.
