At Fermoy Camera Club’s meeting last week members were treated to a very enjoyable talk and presentation by award winning sports photographer Eddie O’Hare. Eddie who is the Sports Photographer for “The Examiner” and “Evening Echo” papers gave a very informative and inspiring presentation of his work to a very appreciative audience on the night.His photos extracted oohs! Aahs! Sharp intakes of breath as well as laughter, as he showed us the thrills and spills of a multitude of different sporting disciplines. Eddie was extremely generous with his time, answering all manner of questions regarding equipment used, techniques used, plus all things in between. It was a great lead to the club’s next competition which is titled “Sports/Hobbies”. This should show who was paying close attention to Eddie’s advice and tips!!
In other news FCC’s Fun Friday Tours have reached their end for another year. It was another great season of “fun Fridays” which saw club members out and about over the last sixteen Friday nights taking photographs, sharing knowledge and techniques while having some serios Fun with Photography!
The club has returned to holding two meetings a month again with the first meeting of the month comprising of either a talk or a workshop, with the second meeting concentrating on our monthly themed challenges.
Members will not be hibernating for the winter as plans are well underway for an exciting new project which will be a major celebration of the club’s first five year’s existence. More details of this huge extravaganza will be released later but hopefully it should be something worth waiting for!!
