The March theme for the Palmerstown Camera Club competition was ‘perspective’, challenging members to look at and think about photography in a different way. ‘Rosie’ won the Advanced Colour category and also won photograph of the month and was taken by Noleen Kavanagh.
‘Shadows’ taken by John Dunne and won the Intermediate Mono, John recently moved up from novice. And lastly ‘Tower’ an image of the Howth Lighthouse, taken by Liam Kelly, who is a new member of the club in the Novice section.
On 21st April the Club will have presentations from Robert and Sharon Prenton who are based in North Wales. They have their own home studio and are surrounded by one of the most photogenic landscapes in Britain. They are best known for combining their studio work with the waterfalls, lakes, castles, mountains and beaches that are a short drive from their home. They are both multi award winning national and international photographers whose images are exhibited all over the world.
If you are an adult, who is interested in photography, then this is a great opportunity for you to attend a friendly presentation where you will see how the Prentons take and process their photographs. You can learn a lot and ask questions. It is suitable for all adults from beginners to advanced. You can attend our Zoom meeting from your own computer. Free admission for one or two meetings to see how you can benefit. Palmerstown Camera Club holds its monthly club competition online and the next one is on Wednesday the 28th April 2021 by Zoom at 8.00pm. An independent outside judge gives each image an evaluation and highlights its good points and tells us how it could be improved. They have three categories – Mono, Colour and Open (Mono or Colour) for each of the Novice, Intermediate and Advanced groups. The judge also picks the Image of the month. They learn a lot from the monthly competitions so members are encouraged to enter.
