Photographic miscellany

Many thanks to Dave, Charlie, Anne, Mel and Nicholas for their contributions at our meeting on Jan21st.

Dave’s talk on Sports photography was fascinating, many of his photos made you feel like you were at the event. It was informative of Dave to include those that didn’t work for him – look around the viewfinder for those damn pylons!  Dave will try to let us know of forthcoming events which will be put up on the calendar but as he said there are GAA matches on everywhere all the time! If members know of an event and are keen to go then email around or let us know via the contact page.
