Congrats to Rich as his “Swan Lake Dahlia” took home the “Botany Medal!”

Alas, all good things must come to an end and 2015 marked the final time that the GLI will be held. This is an individual competition where those interested may submit four images of any genre.

HDP takes this event one step further by conducting a workshop for our members to get assistance in the selection process. This year we had twenty club photographers assigned to the five computer stations which were managed by more seasoned members. We try to assign interested members  to a station depending on which editing program they use. A mini-image study then transpired with members getting support and suggestions on how to improve upon an image. At the end of the night those who came with ten images left with their Final Four


2013 Annual Greater Lynn International Workshop

If it’s January, it has to be the Greater Lynn International workshop at HDP! Once again we set up five stations with members who are more experienced in submitting for this salon. Interested members were asked to bring in eight to ten potential images to be reviewed at their station. Counting in the station masters, we had about twenty-one HDPers entering the 2013 competition. Here are a few of the members who were there and who was doing what. . .
