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.

Team Turner and Sensor Cleaning

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in News

 

We kicked off HDP’s Season Nine programs with a most interesting one – “Cleaning our Camera Sensors!” We are all aware of not only the expense of getting it done professionally but the perils of trying to do it on your own! For many of us, we rely either on the self-cleaning options on our cameras or the rocket blower device. Team Turner – Jeff and Lily – helped to lessen the burden on both concerns.

After taking a test shot, most of us were surprised to see the little dust spots on our LCDs. Here is where Jeff and his first assistant, Lily, sprung into action. Equipped with a toothbrush, Lily was assigned the task of cleaning the outside of of our cameras. She brushed away as the members were awaiting Jeff’s final touch on the inner workings. 

The senior Turner painstakingly swabbed the sensors and gave it a thorough wipe around the lens contacts and mounting. Many of us were surprised at the amount of gunk Jeff found there!

So for a mere $5 and a little bit of your time, we all left with a sensor ready to capture our next shoot WITHOUT the little dust spots!

 

Thanks, Jeff and Lily!
