About Carrigaline Photographic Society
As a result of a notice in the parish newsletter the Carrigaline Photographic Society was formed in November 1985.
The Society was set up to promote photography as an art form. In recent years the majority of members now use digital medium but there are members producing Black and white prints, colour prints and slides as well as members processing and printing their own work.
Being a Photographic Society, the emphasis is on producing photographic images, therefore, intending members need not be concerned about type of equipment used or indeed the need for expensive equipment.
At monthly meetings Society members present their work for critique and, when the opportunity arises, the work is exhibited to the public. Beginners are welcome and instruction is given, but most members learn from the interaction and exchange of ideas between members. Weekend field trips, and day trips, are organised, as are short workshops by Society members.
Society membership is open to anybody over 18 years. If you are considering joining CPS we would invite you to come along to one of our open nights in March or September to find out what the Society is all about.
The Society meets in St. Mary's Hall beside the Church of Ireland on the Currabinny Road, Carrigaline on the last Wednesday of each month at 7.45pm.
