Thurles Camera Club

Last week February 19th the chairman welcomed some new more new people in attendance. We had a large gathering that was eager to see an area of photography that was being aired in our club for the very first time.

Paddy Lane who is employed with Star Systems very kindly agreed to give a session on Time Lapse Photography. In his introduction Paddy explained briefly how he first developed his interest in the photographic business. His employment is currently in the video end of photography. During his session he explained all the various stages and answered the many questions in very informative style for everyone. Indeed he was requested to run his power point presentation for a second time during the course of the evening.

The session has generated has instilled a lot of interest in many of the members who are now intending to give this side of photography a go. It requires a lot of preparation, time and patience, but if executed properly the end results are very rewarding

Paddy joined us for some light refreshments afterwards and continued to share his experiences with us.

.Our thanks to Paddy for a wonderful evenings show and look forward to another session in the near future.

In conclusion the chairman once again on behalf of the offered his sympathy to Jim Troy on the recent sad passing of his sister Phil who was also an aunt to another of our members Antoinette O’Dowd.

He also wished Paddy Loughnane, Tim Murray, Christy Bracken, Teresa O’Dwyer and Eamon Brennan the very best of luck in the National Nature Finals that are being held in Hotel Kilkenny on Sunday February 23rd and hoped they would bring more glory to the club.

A further reminder that we put back our “Faces/Portraiture “competition until March 19th so as to give members a chance to submit images from the various St. Patricks parades that will be taking place..

On Wednesday Trevor O’Toole will be giving a session on metering so don’t’ forget the cameras.
