'INNER EXPOSURE' ~ The Unsung Song Within
Members of the Carlow Photographic Society are very excited to have collaborated with Local Composer, Elaine Nolan, creating our 'Inner Exposure Exhibition'.
This project should have been apart of our Annual Exposure Exhibition but in light of recent events, our Exhibition has been put on hold for the foreseable future. However, Elaine very kindly worked tirelessly behind the scenes in recent months on this 'Inner Exposure Exhibition' so we could do a Virtual Exhibiton to showcase these beautiful works of art.
Combining photography to individually composed pieces has turned into a fantastic creative audio visual exhibition of work.
'Elaine Nolan is that rare multi-dimensional artist who moves easily from heavenly fine art to the meditative Earth below. She is a classically trained musician and singer, as well as an award-winning author.
Hailing from Co Laois, Ireland, Nolan was also prima cellist in the Celbridge Concert Orchestra, and has appeared with the Carlow Youth Orchestra and the Kildare County Orchestra. She is also a pianist and plays classical guitar and is learning the viola. She's sung as a soprano and a tenor with the Carlow Choral Society, the Wexford Festival Singers, and the Celtic Philharmonic Choir and recorded four albums as a member of the Irish Philharmonic Choir and performed with the group at Carnegie Hall.
No strict classicist, however, Nolan’ latest release is To Sleep Beneath The Stars , an album of earthy and graceful meditation music that's soft, compelling, and perfectly human. As a composer, she is daring enough to mix her classical and Celtic influences with electronic sounds (Cel-Techno, anyone?), a feat that would prove difficult to do effectively for most musicians. Nolan, however, pulls it off with her usual elegance and grace. She has performed her debut work “Non Nobis”, a 3-part soprano work in April 2011, followed by her debut concert September 2012 and more recently “A Rebel’s Heart”, a 1916 Commemoration concert as part of Kildare County Council’s Commemoration Programme.
She is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin and the Open University and has won the Cecil Day Lewis Literature Award. Her latest book is the sci fi tale Evolved 2.0: Vortex and was released in March, 2017. Other titles by Elaine include Red Hot Summer and Of Heroes And Kings . Each novel, of course, has an accompanying soundtrack composed by Nolan, as well. She is also studying to become a Sound Healing Practitioner.
The connecting thread running through Nolan’s body of work is her ability to make fine art that conveys her basic humanity to her audiences. No ivory tower recluse, her realness and emotion both expand beyond the bounds of the classical crowd and take up residence in the hearts and minds of any and all who encounter her work, whether musically or in print. Her stock in trade is the immediacy of the culture she creates and is exactly the kind of stuff of which careers are made'.
We look forward to presenting 'Inner Exposure' over the coming weeks.
We would like to acknowledge the Carlow Arts Office, Carlow County Council for their continued support to the CPS.

Huge congratulations to all 5 Shield Finalists in the Austin Kinsella Perpetual Shield and thank you to our judge for this competition, Bill Power FIPF, EFIAP/p, MPSA, ARPS who gave excellent feedback on each image entered by all members.
We had our first ever virtual meeting through Zoom for the judging of the final 5 members through to second round of this competition. We extend a huge thank you to our Competition Secretary David Lawlor LIPF for going ahead with this competition during these current restricted times, in turn, taking on a lot of extra workload behind the scenes, provided a great night for members to tune into.
Huge congratulations to Mary Tierney Byrne, worthy winner of the Shield and to our four other finalists, Patrycja Hodera, Joe Rattigan LIPF, Jenny McCullough and Sabrina Dunny LIPF.
While we have not being able to attend the regular Wednesday nights in the Seven Oaks, we have been keeping busy working on a little personal project.
An idea, suggested by Nuala Grogan, has presented for a very interesting and heartfelt collection of work by members who submitted an image alongside a few words of a personal 'Precious Possession'.
Here's a little video preview I put together of the collection, for a full viewing of each individual piece, click on the link below in our gallery of images. Enjoy!
The Southern Association of Camera Clubs had to hold their Interclub Cup and Shield Competition virtually this year in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic. Huge credit to all involved in doing such a wonderful job in getting all the images judged and presenting it all in such a lovely format for all the clubs to log in and view.
Such an unexpected but delightful result for the Carlow Photographic Society being the overall winners of the Shield, we couldn't be prouder. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all members who entered images and extra special thanks goes to David Lawlor, our Competition Secretary, for taking on the bulk of the work in getting all sent in successfully. We are absolutely delighted and look forward to celebrating when we all get to see each other in person in the future.
Congratulations to Blarney Photography Club on winning the Club Competition, inspiration for us all. Well done to all the clubs who entered and the individual winners, a fantastic selection of photography and a lovely virtual exhibition for all to view by the SACC. Thank You!
Congratulations Alphonsus McCarron AIPF
The Carlow Photographic Society couldn’t be prouder of fellow CPS member Alphonsus McCarron who was successfully awarded his Irish Photographic Federation Associateship today in Portlaoise.
This beautiful body of work presented by Phonsie shows his absolute love for seascapes. The hard work, dedication and commitment given to capture such stunning pieces of photography on many an early, cool breezy morning was worth waiting for those words from Bob Morrison today.....”Your Panel Succeeds”.
Huge congratulations to you Phonsie from all in the CPS, so deserving, we couldn’t be prouder!
Charley Callinan Honoured by his fellow CPS Members
Last week, at our AGM, we had a very special presentation to make to one member of the Carlow Photographic Society.
It gave members of the CPS great pleasure to see our founding member, Charley Callinan, presented with the Irish Photographic Federation Peter Slattery Memorial Award.
The Carlow Photographic Society was founded by both Charley Callinan and Stephan Nolan in 2003. Having both moved to Carlow, both former members of Tallaght Photographic Society, they decided to put an advertisement in the Nationalist to see if other like minded people would be interested in meeting to form a club and the rest as they say is history!
Charley is an honorary and still very active member of the club. He has an in-depth knowledge of photography which he freely shares with members, be it on composition, exposure, which type of lens to use, the list goes on. Charley’s experience with photography goes right back to the fantastic days of a roll of film and developing and seeing prints come alive in the darkroom.
He likes to keeps his fellow members and the committee on their toes! The endless hours, days, weeks, years he has given to the Carlow Photographic Society is something we have all gained from photographically, individually and socially. Many friendships made, many a joke to be heard, many a laugh to be had.
The IPF Peter Slattery Memorial Award is a special award given to a member, who in the opinion of their club, has contributed significantly to the workings of the club over the years.
It gave Gilbert Smyth, being his last official job as Chairperson, great pleasure to present Charley with this special medal on behalf of all the members, for all his 17 years of hard work and dedication to the CPS.
Thank you Charley for founding such an amazing club and for being such a huge part of our photographic family which you created in 2003 and here’s to many more years ahead to look forward to!
Congratulations Gilbert Smyth LIPF

Another great night for our club last night. We had the pleasure of welcoming Joe Doyle from Malahide Camera Club and we would like to extend a huge thank you to him for judging our third League Competition of 2019/20 season.
We had two themes for Joe to judge, the Colour theme was Boats/Trains/Planes and the Black & White was Creative.
Joe gave each image great constructive criticism and little tips here and there to improve our photography. The top scoring images of the night were very deserving, some stunning photos judged last night.
We were then treated to a little presentation of Joe’s work, from his early days of photography right up to his much more developed style of architectural photography he did for his IPF Associate panel along with some salon work incorporating some of his portrait work. Lovely seeing first hand, thanks again Joe and we look forward to welcoming you back next season for your new presentation.

A Great Night with Helen Hanafin FIPF, EFIAP/s
It was lovely to welcome Helen Hanafin FIPF, EFIAP/s to our club last night for a wonderful presentation on her journey to attaining her recent Irish Photographic Federation Fellowship panel 'The People of Napel'.
Helen presented stunning vibrant colourful images all capturing the people of Napel in their natural environment.

With an amazing skill of processing such fantastic and very impactful monochrome images, we can see why, absolutely superb photography.

A Great Editing Workshop with Lawrence Timmons
Last night Carlow Photographic Society members were treated to an excellent night with Lawrence Timmons. All eyes were glued to the screen as Lawrence gave us an excellent presentation on Photoshop. He started off showing members how to set up Photoshop from the default settings and over the night he covered contrast black and white conversion and much much more. One thing that stood out for members was Lawrence’s process on sharpening an image. Who could believe that pushing the slider to 500 in unsharp mask can give you a beautiful sharp image.
From all the members of Carlow Photographic Society we would like to thank Lawrence again for a fantastic presentation. If you are interested in photoshop or photography we would highly recommend Lawrence as his passion for both are on another level.
