February Club Meeting

The next meeting of Rainbow Camera Club will be held this coming Thursday, 12th February, in our usual venue of The Cabin, Rossinver, Co Leitrim (beside the football pitch) from 8pm to 10pm. I hope to see as many of you there as possible. New members are always welcome.
There are a number of things happening on the night. These will include:-


It was decided at the January meeting that we shall hold photoshoots monthly on the Sunday after the monthly meeting. That means that our photoshoot this month shall be on Sunday, 15th February. We will need to decide on a location and time for this at the meeting.

Regina and Mary have offered to look into suitable places where club members might want to consider as a possible club weekend away later in the year. Hopefully they will have one or more suggestions for us to ponder at the meeting. Of course, if any other member has any ideas or suggestions please feel free to suggest them as well at the meeting, or email them to me and I can bring them up on your behalf. 

Club member Regina Magee has offered to give us a talk this month on the topic of Printing Photographs. I am sure this will be of use to all of us, and look forward to hearing her advice.

I have been contacted by a committee member of the North West Camera Club, based in Ballyshannon, asking whether we would be interested in joining with them in a Print Challenge. Basically it would involve each club producing a pane of eight A3 prints, one from each of eight different themes, and then getting in an independent judge to choose the winner in each of the individual categories. The winning club would be the one with the highest number of winning images.  He suggests this could become an annual event.
If we accept the challenge, they have already chosen their four themes (Decay, Street Photography, Contradiction, and Circles [Shape]). It would be up to us to choose our four topics. Perhaps there could also be an Open theme as well, so that there would be an odd number of themes?
A member of the North West Camera Club hopes to come down to our meeting  this month to talk about the idea and answer any questions or concerns.

The motivational theme for this month's meeting is "Emotion and/or Freedom". A slideshow of the images that members have sent in will be shown after the break at this month's meeting.Full details of the monthly motivational themes for 2015 can be found  here and the slideshow from the January 2015 Open theme can be seen on the club's YouTube page here.

Finally a reminder that membership fees for 2015 are now due. Fees are unchanged from last year, and are €25 for the year (€10 for junior members). If you have not already paid, please try to remember to bring your fees to this month's meeting.
