Fermoy Camera Club’s latest competition was titled “Windows, Doors, Knobs and Knockers” There was a huge selection of photos exploring all aspects of the theme on the night. Suzanne Merrigan once again was the overall winner with a beautiful image of a woman in a window. Second place went to Una Finn with Catherine Sheehan third and George O’Keefe fourth. Michael Howard Snr won Grade 2 with Louise Howard winning Grade 3. Our judges on the night came from Blarney Camera Club.
The last two “Fun Fridays” saw the club out and about in different areas, FCC Fun Fridays are casual get togethers where any members who are available get together to take photographs and discuss various topics of photography thereby learning from each other. We travelled to the Viaduct for one evening which saw lovely light helping create some lovely images. The May Bank Holiday weekend was a wash out but fortunately The Fermoy Heritage Conference was taking place so a large group of club members attended that. The club were very pleased to be involved with the Heritage Conference where we had Historic sites displayed in a photographic exhibition
On Sunday the club went for an afternoon Outing to Lismore to see the Horse drawn Carriages run. These magnificent animals and their stylish carriages made for great photos with the castle as a backdrop. The weather was a bit broken and unpredictable so we altered our plans to take in St. Cartage’s Cathedral. Overall it was another great weekend filled with “Fun with Photography”
At our next meeting our guest speaker is Michael O’Sullivan. Michael who lives in west cork is a member of Cork Camera Group as well as holding the Presidency of the Irish Photographic Federation, the governing body of all camera clubs. Michael specialises in lighting for his photographs. He works a lot with models both indoors and outdoors creating very gothic and darkly creative images.
