2. Set Subject - Shadows - September 2017


Shadow photography is challenging. Look beyond the norm, and discover the shape and form of shadows, and the difference they make to a scene. Include the source of the shadow, or don't include it - make a creative decision about how you want to present the image, and what the subject is. 

Submit your images by Monday 18th September 2017.  

3. Ballina Photography Workshop 

Harry has asked that you all give him the Raw images (or jpeg) of the Kyra portraits. Please bring them on a stick to the outing, or to the next meeting. He wants all the images, please. 


Please RSVP if you wish to attend the Coedmore Castle outing.
See you at the outing - Sat 26th August 2017 at 9am
