All members have access to the CPS website’s albums, where they can post their photos for others to see. Those who also use facebook can post their pictures in the CPS Group there, so which to use? Both have advantages and disadvantages.

  • Ease of Posting: It is probably a bit easier to put a picture on our website, as you can upload up to 20 pictures at a time
  • Visibility: Only CPS members can see pictures posted in our group on facebook, while anyone can see pictures posted in the albums, unless you (or the administrator) specifically restricts them
  • Discussion: With the latest album system, it is easy for members to rate or comment on a photo, and if you have several you would like opinions on, the website is easier. There is, or will be, a mechanism for exchange of comments between the website and facebook
  • Picture quality: You will generally get higher quality results in pictures on the website
  • Organisation: Everyone gets their own album in the gallery and there are generally separate albums for various projects. Within their album members can create sub-albums, so pictures can be organised into various categories. In the facebook group all the pictures go into one big album (generally).
  • Permanence: Facebook isn’t. The webpage is.

If you had pictures in our previous Gallery system and would like them transferred to your new album, let me (Austin) know. It is a simple operation but does require admin rights.

Lots have things have changed with facebook since we first set up so that posts here would be echoed to our facebook group, and various settings had fallen into disrepair. To get it going, it seemed simplest to start from scratch, so today’s question is – are we there yet, Sabrina?

The dream team!!

The Nationalist 13 February 2017

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!
