Our creative night at Carlow Photographic Society.

Members got to pick a theme from a hat in December and had approximately four weeks to come up with a printed photograph. This made for some interesting photos for the judges to judge on the night.

Congratulations to Charley Callinan for his winning image, it was a powerful image and a worthy winner. The committee and the members would like to thank  Michael Blade Sabrina Olivia Dunny  and Joe  Rattigan for their excellent judging on the night.

Congratulations to Carlow Photographic Society member Sabrina Olivia Dunny of Sabrina's Photography for being one of the Top 3 finalists from thousands of entries in the TV3 Ireland:AM Monthly Camera Club Competition, where the theme for the month of January was "Family". Sabrina's beautiful photo capturing a very special moment between Mother and Child, which can be seen below and you will all agree is a truly wonderful shot!

What an amazing experience, well done Sabrina you were fantastic! We wish you continued success on your Photography journey and a big thank you for mentioning our now nationally famous Camera Club on the big screen!

A Few words from MIke on the Creative Challenge. 

Everyone is going to be busy over the holiday period but when the festivities are over get out your cameras and be creative. My 'Challenge' is an attempt to encourage your creativeness. Entries have to be mounted prints and either colour or mono. No more than 2 prints per person. They have to be in on 10th January for the critique on 17th but, if that puts too much pressure on you, I could acceptentries even on the 17th. Cepta will bring in mounts on the 10th. Your prints should be labelled with the 'challenge' and your membership number. As an incentive the best picture will earn the photographer a copy of Steve McCurry's book 'Reading'. Its a beautiful book of this American photojournalist's shots taken around the globe of people in the act reading. Let me know if you haven't yet got a challenge from the 'hat' and I'll pick one for you. I think I pulled a short straw myself with 'Panning'. A Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all.
