How do you take your photography to the next level?
A good place to start is to see the winning entries from all other camera clubs and the 'winners of the winners', as 'starred' by the 3 NIPA judges. Viewing these prints and projected images allows you compare your standard, and that of your club, with the standard displayed by other clubs throughout Northern Ireland. This a worthy exercise and can only help improve your photography.
Note the early start of 7.30pm rather than the usual 8pm. This is to allow Catchlight Camera Club to clear up and vacate the premises by 10pm.
The next NIPA Event is the Round Two Adjudication Evening of the Inter-Club Competition, sponsored by Camera Jungle. It will be held on Wednesday 26th November 2014 at Catchlight Camera Club at 7:30 pm. Arrive at 7:15 pm if you want to take some time to view the prints.
The venue is Finaghy Community Centre, which is on the 1st corner on the Left, on Benmore Drive off Finaghy Road South.
