Killarney
Camera Club
Everyone has enjoyed the clear skies and full moon last week, but for Killarney Camera Club it was an extra bonus. We had planned a club outing for the fist meeting in October, but we never imagined to be so lucky with the weather. Last Thursday evening we headed up to Ladies View in Killarney to shoot the stars. For many of us it was a new experience, but with the guidance of the more experienced members we all managed some super shots.
The key to getting night photography right is getting the ISO right for the conditions and understanding your camera plays a huge part also. The great thing about the club is that people are so willing to share information. If anyone is interested in joining the club then email secretary@killarneycameraclub.ie for more info.
