Our guest speaker Brian Malloy gave a very informative presentation on B & W photography.

Brian shared tips and techniques he uses to make his Street photography stand out. Black and white is his preference but he shared other ways to capture an image that grabs the viewer and pulls him in.  Thank you, Brian for an excellent presentation.

Something new! We'd like to ask the members to start promotion a new hashtag on their social channels when posting images.

First field trip of the season!

Join us for our first field trip of the 2019-20 season! We'll be exploring the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge in Boston on Friday evening, October 18th. The iconic bridge offers a ton of opportunities for just about every type of photographer. Sunset is about 6:00 but we'll have a few people there starting at 5:00ish for anyone who can make it that early and enjoy the golden hour. We'll stay through the blue hour and into dark for everyone who comes later or wants to try out night photography. 

There are 2 parks that offer great views, Paul Revere and North Point Park. Car pooling is recommended. Near Paul Revere Park you can find paid parking near the "Residence Inn by Marriott Boston Harbor" or, if you're lucky, on the street nearby.

North Point Park is across from the Museum of Science and there is usually plenty of parking in their garage. You may also get lucky and find on street parking on Museum Way or Education Street. 

Other photo opportunities nearby include the skate park next to North Point Park and the classic view from Portal Park next to North Station (see attached picture). The walking bridge connecting the 2 parks and the new "Gahden" also have some interesting looks.

Please register and let us know about what time you hope to arrive. We can establish a couple of meeting locations and times so no one gets lost! To register got to www.hdpcameraclub.com then click on "Calendar" and find the event. Click on the event and you will be brought to the event page. At the bottom there is a button to go to the registration page.

Thank you,
