Nature Group Page

Welcome to the Dublin Camera Club Nature Group’s web page

The DCC Nature Group is a special interest group for members of Dublin Camera Club.  We share a love of Nature and Wildlife photography and we are at all different levels in the club some very Novice and some very Advanced, most somewhere in between.  With Covid restrictions in place we meet on Zoom on the 4th Thursday of the month.  Over the year some meetings will have invited speakers on specific nature topics while other meetings will be members discussing issues around Nature & Wildlife (N&W) Photography.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting is on 22nd April at 8pm. 

Agenda for Meeting

  1. John Bainbridge on Flying Insects – how and where
  2. Elaine’s trip to Japan and the Snow Monkeys
  3. Seasonal Nature shooting locations
  4. Viewing of images submitted – images either taken in last 8 weeks or based on a theme of “Zoos and Wildlife Parks”
  5. Structure of Nature Group night – feedback and ideas for future
  6. Gallery

Future Meetings

We are working towards a structure for regular monthly meetings, i.e. those involving just the members of the club

  • How to and Where to a short instructive/educational item on the “How to and Where to” of a particular type of N&W
  • What's Hot now? suggestions of what is in season to photograph and what is coming up in the coming weeks/months. In time this will include possible locations to visit, as a group or alone.
  • A Travel Tale a brief illustrated story of a member’s trip to photograph N&W images – volunteers needed.
  • Image sharing the practice of image sharing, members sending in images for sharing and discussion. 

Our Gallery

We have, in addition to this web page, a gallery for nature images which is now live with images submitted by members..  We are inviting members to keep submitting images for possible inclusion in the gallery.  The gallery will present images which will be updated on a regular basis and will include only images which are either Nature or Wildlife.  The current theme of the gallery is Birds however other themes will emerge over coming weeks.  How to submit - CLICK HERE

What is Nature or Wildlife photography?

Most members just want to enjoy photographing nature and wildlife but there is a precise definition of what is Nature or Wildlife photography (they do differ) and what you can do to an image in post processing to enter it in a competition under either heading. If you are entering competitions in either genre then these definitions are necessary.  These are set out by FIAP/IPF HERE  and endorsed by Dublin Camera Club for any of its competitions under either category.  An easy to understand interpretation is on this LINK
