Fermoy Camera Club members were out in force recently photographing the Fermoy Triathlon..
This event which for the first time was a round of Triathlon Ireland's National Series is a great testament to the hard work and dedication put in over the years by the members of Blackwater Triathlon Club.
In preparation for this event Fermoy Camera Club held a workshop on sports photography with the emphasis on Triathlon.This workshop was led by one of Triathlon Ireland's official photographer's Gordon Thomson
Gordan specialises in capturing those moments which tell the stories from each triathlon he attends both at home and abroad. At the workshop members were shown the various techniques required to capture the action shots.
Gordon explained camera settings as well as lens choice for every aspect of triathlon photography. All agreed at the end of the workshop that it was extremely beneficial and FCC would like to thank Gordon for his time.
On Saturday it was time for members to implement what we'd learnt from the workshop which is a tough task considering the speed at which these amazing triathletes move at!
Overall all it was another very enjoyable Outing for FCC members filled with Fun with Photography.
