Club Notes – Wednesday 6th Feb 19

Last Wednesday night the 6th of February we had former member and Thurles Native Debbie Hickey in with us to give a presentation on her work.

As well as being an established photographer Debbie is a big music and concert fan which led her into current field of concert photography. She showed us a slide show of her favourite gig photos and also handed round prints of the photos and finished with a Q & A session where she informed the members present of how to deal with low light and her preferred settings and also talked about getting into concert photography so once again a big thanks to Debbie for her time on the night.
Debbie can also lay her hand to all types of photography such as Studio, Wedding, On Location, Products, Portraits, Concerts, Events, Corporate, Macro, Headshots, Portfolios, Photo Manipulation, Photo Restoration.
