Christmas Fun Competition

This year Celbridge Camera Club devised a new creative and fun end of year competition with categories for non-advanced and advanced working members of the club.

Over the year I’ve been playing with techniques and learning new post processing tips from many sources, Club talks, fellow club members, online videos, and even visiting the National Gallery for inspiration at one point.

Well, my quest for new skills and knowledge paid off last night when I won the Advanced Best Portfolio panel, Best creative image, and Judges choice.

Chritmas Fun Panel 2015Not my usual selection of images and neither SciFi image was possible with out contribitions from my very creative niece Caitriona Whelan, and location finding by my brother Thomas.

A great end to my photography year in which I achieved my goals and felt my photographic skills and creative output has hugely increased in a short space of time.

If you are struggling photographer or creative with a need to master new visual mediums, joining your local (or not so local) photography club is a great way to push yourself to find your visual voice.
