Currow native, Tralee resident, Joni Hartnett is a member of Castleisland Camera Club.
Joni is the eighth member of the club to be included here in our weekly feature on the work of the members.
In her biography, Joni revealed that she has always had a passion for photography and an admiration for the work of other photographers.
Gift of a Camera
“After my recent retirement I was gifted a camera and as a result I am getting some great experience,” said Joni.
“Being part of Castleisland Camera Club has been of immense benefit. A lot of tips and encouragement is given, along with commardship and outings which are most beneficial to my learning process.
Focus on Nature
“I love to focus on all things nature, whether its flora, fauna or landscape. If something is aesthetically pleasing to me then I will capture it to the best of my ability.
“I look forward to each season of the year and what it brings to the countryside.
“To capture a landscape during different seasons can be amazing in terms of colours and the wildlife is remarkable to see.
“In my opinion the creativity, imagination and an eye for detail are the key factors to making good photographs great,” said Joni.
