Shoot With Me

 

We have renamed ‘Walk With Me’ to ‘Shoot With Me’ as we believe it better describes what this activity is about.

The purpose of the Shoot With Me (SWM) is to bring old and new members together, to share learning and to get members out shooting. The idea is that some of the members (between 12 and 16) volunteer to lead a small group of fellow photographers in a project of the leaders choice.

(The project could be anything. Portraits, Still Life, Landscape, Seascape, Silhouettes, Macro, Musicians, Pets, Killiney Bay, Reflections … The list is endless.)

SWM May 2017 – Processing with Free Software

SWM May 2017 – Moon Shots

Shooting the moon is quite a challenge. Apart from being very weather dependent, there is also the challenge that a full moon happens only every 28 days. Even a crescent moon is only available a couple of times a month. Some of us did brave a cold 5am start in...

SWM May 2017 – Bokeh Effect

The BOKEH team ingeniously used the bokeh blurring effect on distant out-of-focus point light sources, to integrate them into the main image, thus creating an interesting combination of the "real" and the "fanciful". Team members were:- Tony Jobling (leader), Ann...

SWM May 2017 – Drogheda Port

Drogheda offers lots of photo-opps in a very small space, from medieval structure to industrial and Victorian viaducts and a river with widely varying tidal water levels. It rained a lot which made for challenging photography, but we did bump into local camera club...
