DPC PORTRAIT WORKSHOPS
Following the relaxation of government regulations around covid, the club was able to restart in-house meet-ups, and this was done in style with two portrait workshops. These workshops were particularly important to help newer members put into practice their learning over the past two years as well as reconnecting older friendships. Over the course of the workshops we had six models with well over 25 photographers in different groups over the two days. Participants were shown how to ‘read’ light for natural light sessions and then how to apply the same techniques with studio strobes. Models were styled in various outfits while photographers learnt how to pose them. This was open to all club members with thanks going to the committee for organising.

CLUB MEET-UP & PRESENTATION AFTERNOON
As noted on our instagram account, we had a great turn out for our first awards ceremony since 2019. We had great celebrations as we had 3 years of awards to get through. Thank you to all our members for working with the club, continuing to craft their images, learning and coming together in unique ways. Some would say that we became closer as a club with new ways to communicate and share. As a club, we're stronger than ever before. We will also be sharing our 50 years as a club this year. Roll on the new season!
DPC MEMBERS SEEK THE KILKENNY RIPPER
Yet again members of the Drogheda Photographic Club and others they could rope in dressed up in their glad rags as they hit the town of Kilkenny over the first weekend in April. Participating in the CluedUp Murder Mystery provided plenty of photography opportunities of unsuspecting attendees, including Miss Marple, Kojak, members of The Great Gatsby. With no time to lose, members carried onto Ducketts Grove in Carlow to continue with portraits against its grandiose backdrop.
