Huge Congratulations to Nuala Grogan who received an Honourable Mention in the Mono Section of the IPF National Shield today with this stunning image ‘Soft Light’ 🌟
26 clubs entered with 8 images per panel, a fantastic achievement.
A very proud club today, well done Nuala 😊
Congratulations to all the clubs for such a wonderful exhibition of work today and to all the winners.
A huge thank you to Andrew Magan and all in the Kilkenny Photographic Society who hosted today’s event and to the Irish Photographic Federation for providing such a great day of photography for all the clubs to get involved with.....until next year 📸
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.

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. She then lead us through into her powerful and very striking monochrome images which she chose to work with for her panel. With an amazing skill of processing such fantastic and very impactful monochrome images, we can see why, absolutely superb photography.
On behalf of all in the CPS we would like to extend a huge thank you to Helen and wish her every success in her continued photographic journey 📸

IPF Photographer & Nature Photographer of the Year Competition
The National Finals of the IPF Photographer of the Year Competition take place in February each year. The finals are a culmination of regional qualifying rounds from our five regions (SACC, Mid-East, Mid-West, and North-East). The regional qualifying rounds take place between November 1st and January 31st each year. This competition was previously known as the IPF National Print & Projected Image Competition.
This competition is for photographers, both amateur and professional, who are members of clubs affiliated to the Irish Photographic Federation. Its purpose is to allow the se photographers showcase their work and compete with their peers and given the very high standard of work submitted, especially that of the award winners, it’s one of the highlights of the Irish Photography calendar. Each image is scored by three international judges. This is done live and open to the public and draws large crowds from all over the country each year
John & Noreen Hooton
Members of the Carlow Photographic Society would like to extend a huge thank you to John Hooton and his wonderful wife Noreen for such a fantastic presentation given last night. It was wonderful to see such stunning images printed on such beautiful paper and view them in reality, described with such passion and humour.
They have very generously given a signed copy of his latest book ‘Ireland The Way We Were’ towards Ross McKelvey’s Fundraiser Day this Saturday for Suzanne Behan’s Sarcoma Treatment Fund.
A beautiful gift to give out on the day, thank you John and Noreen
