NECCC Inter-club Color Print Competition – Spring

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Uncategorized

Well, the results are final and Hockomock finished near the bottom of the Class A twenty-one clubs – not bad considering we only submitted for two of the three competitions!!! We totaled 193 points from the two competitions we entered (we joined the inter-club just after the Fall judging).


In the Winter we finished with 94 pts. good enough for 7th place! We managed to better our standings in the Spring with 99 points and a fifth place finish! Even if we just managed to duplicate our lower results of 94, we would have taken home the 2nd Place Red Ribbon!


Our big winner was Bernie’s “Cedar Waxing Snack” impressed the judges for 26 pts. and a 3rd Place Ribbon!

Model Shoot 2017

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Uncategorized

Thanks to Jeff the T., George, and Carl we managed to have three set-ups for this year’s model shoot. Jeff came through with five beautiful young people who offered to be our models. About fifteen members took advantage of this opportunity to capture these young people and also to pick the photo minds of both Jeff and George.

A little a twist was added this year as we had a set of identical twins in the mix – Tanisha and Tayesha. Also in attendance were Jackie, Tim, and Alayna.


Here a few early processed ones. . .

Rich Hinds at the WBPL

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Uncategorized

New club member, Rich Hinds, has had an exhibit of his work on display at the West Bridgewater Public Library for the past few months. He was a seed to share his photography with interested townspeople and others. About a dozen of us came to hear his talk.


Rich has used HDR (High Dynamic Range) to improve those images that had both bright highlights and dark shadows. The resulting HDR image compensates for both extremes and give an all-over better picture. Many of his shots came from the nine years he spent in the LA area. Slowly he is adding New England scenery to his portfolio.


Rich will be moving on to the Bridgewater and East Bridgewater Public Libraries over the summer.
