This week we will have a workshop on NIK Software. This is editing software and is still available for free from Google. It’s called Google Nik Collection and can be downloaded for free.
As it’s a plug-in, it’s not stand alone so, you will need to have either Lightroom or Photoshop installed on your computer. All those things done ( Nik Collection and Lightroom/ or Photoshop already installed) you can bring along your laptop to the meeting and follow the instructions, tips and tutorials on the night.
Please have your laptop fully powered as there may not be sufficient power sockets available.
Congratulations to club member Eugene Canning LIPF on his success at the recent distinctions sittings in Portlaoise. We look forward to seeing Eugene’s successful panel in the near future.
We had another successful and very instructive studio lighting session in the club on Thursday, 9th March. Thanks to Derville, Ned and Mark for all their work in setting up the studio and for their help and guidance during the night. We were fortunate to have a good number of models on the night and thanks to all those who volunteered and patiently posed during the evening. Special thanks to Derville’s nephew, Ultan Conroy, for being so accommodating on the night.

This is a very interesting series that started tonight on BBC 4. Came across it by accident. Leading photographer and picture editor Eamonn McCabe will tell the remarkable story of Britain in Focus: A Photographic History. From the delicacy of Julia Margaret Cameron through to the satire of Martin Parr, Eamonn will look behind the lens to find out more about the artists and technology responsible for some of the most iconic images in British history and how a new generation of Instagrammers will shape our future attitudes towards photography.
“I’m writing in hopes of interesting either your camera club, or an individual in it to participate in providing photographs for a children’s picture book. The book is intended to provide comfort to children who have been traumatized.”
