HDP First Annual Model Shoot

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in News

 

Thanks to Jeff Turner, the club was able to hold its first model shoot at the club’s meeting place. Jeff, Jim, and George all brought in their lighting set-ups and were ready to fire away when the members showed up. Jeff asked four younger adults to be our evening’s models.

About twenty members and one non-member took advantage of the expertise available from Jim, George, and Jeff. The four models were switched out between the three stations every fifteen minutes.

2016 OSI Workshop

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in News

 

 

In the past HDP has conducted an in-house workshop to assist members in the selection process for the Greater Lynn International Salon. The GLI held its last salon last year so we just changed our focus to the Ocean State Salon!

 

Several members brought in their laptops with various post-processing programs – Lr, Ps, or El. Interested members were then assigned according to their preferred program. Each potential entrant brought about ten images to be reviewed by his/her group. At the end of the evening everyone should have left with their final four selected and with tips on how to improve upon them.

 

Here are a some shots from those stations. . .

Holiday Social 2015

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in News

 

Another fun evening as twenty members, three spouses and two of their children came together at the East Bridgewater Public Library.

 

Lynne, Ron, and Laura did an exceptional job of planning and setting up for the event! Pizza and salad arrived right on time and those attending started to line up for the food. After the munching ended, it was time to drag out the numbered tags and start the Yankee Swap.

 

A few items managed to exchange hands a couple of times before being taken home by someone with a low numbered tag.

 

Phil the N opened up his swap and was a little confused as to what he had – the items were all in Japanese! No problem, as Paul’s daughter, Hannah offered her bilingual talent and explained what he had.

Our other non-adult was also our youngest member, Lily. She and Hannah managed to entertain themselves throughout the evening.
