Having recovered from a recent bad ‘flu, I was on the road again last night.
The good people from North Meath Photographic Society invited me to give a presentation of my work at their club in Kells. Myself and my husband Bryan received a very warm welcome from the members there. Although I know many of the members through facebook, this was the first time I had actually met them.
I showed them a selection of my seascapes taken over the past 4 years since I started out on my photography journey. Apart from showing people a selection of beautiful locations here on the east coast, my main wish from these talks is to inspire and encourage people to develop an interest in seascapes. There is a huge enjoyment to be had from creating creating beautiful images, and it really is a tonic for the body, mind and soul to spend a few hours by the seashore and immerse yourself in the waves breaking on the shoreline, and breathing in the lovely sea air .
The talks usually last about 2 hours First of all I give a digital presentation , and show about 50 images. I explain my thoughts behind each image and also talk about the technical side of things. I also bring about 30 mounted prints with me , and talk about my printing too.
This is my second last talk of the year. I have one more in Clones at the end of May, and I am looking forward to meeting all the members there too .
It has been a busy few months with the talks. Over the past few months , since September I have given a presentation of my work at all the following clubs around the country : Mallow Camera Club, Sutton Camera Club, Swords Viewfinder Camera Club, Raheny Camera Club , Celbridge Camera Club, Carlow Photographic Society, Kilkenny Photographic Society, Dublin Camera Club, North Meath Photographic Society .
It is a huge honour and a privilege to be invited to all these clubs to show my work … I enjoy meeting fellow photographers, showing my images and sharing my knowledge with others.
