13th Sep - Basics & Distinctions

Last night was the first proper session of the this season and we kicked things off with a packed session.

Basics

Karen McCrea gave a great presentation on the basics of photography.  For those that are still struggling with the juggling act you might find this cheatsheet useful, it's a handy resource for your camera bag and was found here.

Distinctions

Donal McCann  FRPS then gave a fascinating talk on distinction panels, specifically RPS and IPF distinctions.  We were treated to a selection of club members who displayed and discussed their distinction panels;

  • L Panels: Helen Weir   LRPS & Melissa Gordon  LIPF
  • A Panel: Brian Bennett  ARPS

Finally Ross McKelvey  ARPS DPAGB BPE2 discussed PAGB and FIAP distinction routes.

Information

Here is a handout detailing RPS assessment dates throughout 2012/2013.  

Housekeeping

The Committee would like to extend its thanks to everyone that helped to setup and clear away the room.  As you can see, with such a large turnout that help is invaluable in ensuring that we kick off and finish in good time.  There'll be plenty to do throughout the year and we'd ask that people pitch in as and when they can.  Thank you.

Success at Athlone

Fantastic results from Martin Courtney AIPF, Melissa Gordon LIPF, Jaime Valente LIPF and Dermott Sweeney LIPF, registered under Imagemakers who were successful on Saturday 19th May 2012 at Athlone. Commiserations to David Donnelly, Ryan Wilson and David Reid at their attempt of the LIPF and also to Ross McKelvey who bravely attempted the FIPF.

Well done to everyone for their hard work and efforts. Images of the panels are due to appear over the next few days.
