28 October 2016 Clarkston Hall
Tonight we had a special presentation from Gabriel O'Shaughnessy of Dundalk Camera Club. Gabriel is held in very high esteem both nationally and internationally as a photographer of the highest order as his distinctions demonstrate, FRPS, MFIAP, FIPF, EFIAP/b. Gabriel is equally held in the highest esteem as a judge of photographic competitions.
The evening brought together several photographic clubs to hear Gabriel talk about his photography, how he creates his images and about the drive to create the vision he has in his head. As well as discussion regarding techniques used in the production of images and his 'Passion For Prints' -the title of the presentation, Gabriel gave many anecdotal accounts of his journey to excellence as a photographer. In his final comments for the evening as he addressed the assembled audience Gabriel suggested that pleasing yourself as a photographer and enjoying taking images was the most important part of the craft.
Many thanks to the committee of Eastwood Photographic Society and particularly Hazel Gordon for a fantastic evening and for being the driving force behind bringing Gabriel to give this presentation.
Image Exchange with Eastwood Nottingham
Many thanks to Jim McCreery, club editor of Through The Lens and assistant secretary for organising and presenting our fourth annual exchange of images with our namesake down south. Eastwood Nottingham have a membership of around 30 members who submit images to ourselves annually for an evening of critique in a very friendly manner likewise we submit the same amount of images to their club for comments.
On display were a wide variety of images from both clubs and a generous description from the authors which came in the form of aperture, shutter speed, iso, post processing and a general description. A few of the images supplied were from their Walking Wednesday event. This is were members of their club get together every week to go on location and hone their skills.
Once again thank you Jim for an entertaining evening
