Tom & Elmarie talks plus Groupies

Many thanks to Tom and Elmarie for their talks on Wednesday last.

Tom (who now holds the CCC record for the shortest talk ever) showed us iconic images by Albert Watson. Known primarily for his incredible portraits of celebrities and models, Watson also dabbles in Landscape. Tom’s favourite image was an advertising shot for Fashion House Falke. Members can find the slides from Tom’s presentation here.

 

Elmarie chose a beautiful image taken by Rohan Riley. It’s of the trees at Myross Retreat Centre, Leap taken in 2016. Then Hurricane Ophelia struck and Elmarie showed us from a nearby vantage point what devastation was caused.

The rest of the evening was spent organising ourselves into groups for excursions between meetings. Patricia is the co-ordinator of the Clonakilty group, Kathleen for the Leap- Rosscarbery group and Geoff for Skibbereen

Photographic topics were chosen by each group and the hope is that come June 12th we’ll be sharing with each other what we’ve achieved.
