The Next Meeting of the Rainbow Camera Club will be held on Thursday 13th June in our usual spot of The Cabin, Rossinver, Co Leitrim from 8:00pm to 10:00pm. In the first part of the meeting Sligo-based photographer Peter Wilcock will be giving us a talk. Peter was a sports photographer with several UK newspapers, and is also a City & Guilds registered photography teacher. He was also the teacher of the class that produced the Timepiece photography exhibition on "Rossinver/Garrison Past and Present" that launched in the Gillaroo Centre in Garrison last Sunday week, and is now currently on display in the Ballagh Centre, Rossinver.
A reminder that the Motivational Theme chosen at last month's meeting was "Boats". Members are encouraged to interpret this theme in any way they see fit and to submit up to three photographs taken since the last meeting on this theme to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the slide-show to be shown in the second half of next week's meeting. Ideally resize your photos to 1024 pixels on the longest side. Please send them by midnight Monday 10th of June. There is a YouTube tutorial showing how to resize your images using Picasa. It is very much the same as the demonstration that given by Martin at the end of last month's meeting, and was put together by a member of the Boyle Camera Club, who also have monthly 'motivational themes'. The link is here.
Also a reminder that the 25 euro Annual Membership Fee (10 euro for junior members) for this year is now overdue. If you have not yet paid please try to rectify this at next week's meeting. And if you are having a problem paying it all at once, please talk to a committee member and we can arrange some sort of easy payment plan.
A Joint Photo Shoot with Boyle Camera Club has been arranged for Sunday 23rd June (time to be confirmed). They want to come up to our area, and have suggested that they would like to visit Fowley Falls in Rossinver (further up the road from The Cabin). Put this date in your diaries, and please come along if you are not doing anything else that day.
Finally a copy of the slide-show that was shown last month of the "Sky" motivation pictures members sent in has been put online on the Rainbow Camera Club's facebook page, and you should be able to view it by clicking here.
