1605 Daniel Bray Highway (Rte. 29), Lambertville, NJ
This is a great place for HDR and macro photography! We will have the entire place to ourselves (no public), with tripods!
This Farmstead museum is chock full of things: kitchen, a general store, farm equipment, a barber shop, dentist and doctor paraphernalia, you name it. It has all of the details for macro and is perfect for HDR. We will have the place to ourselves, with tripods, for six (previous sessions were only 3.5 hours). You are not registered for this event until we receive your payment.
We have posted a couple of images from our last trip there: http://www.breaphotosgalleries.com/Locations/Holcombe-Jimison-Farmstead/and also there are photos posted in the Meetup photo album and in the past meetup to this location.
We will provide everyone with an over view of the various photo ops and compositions to look for! We have been there many times so we can help you make the most of your experience. We will help people with their camera settings for the first hour. After that Tom and I will be shooting, but we will point out some tips on exposure, HDR, bracketing, composition, etc. We will have the entire place to ourselves (no public), with tripods!
FYI. There is a bathroom on the premises and it is an easy place to get around and you can even even work out of your car rather than carry your camera bag. There are tables in the administration office (heat or A/C) if you need a snack or a rest. We will eat lunch inside around 12:30 (bring your lunch, not much fast food around, some decent restaurants for after the workshop, but nothing that you can run out and get during the day)
Please note that all of our workshops require the participants sign a liability waiver. Download it here; then print, read and sign it. Some venues may also require a location liability waiver.
"The Museum property was once part of John Holcombe's "Plantation", according to his will of 1742. In 1968, the Farmstead was donated to the Hunterdon County Historical Society In 1984, the property was deeded to the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead, Inc. The Museum is housed in the restored three story bank barn that was built into the hillside to make both floors accessible from ground level. Livestock were kept on the lower level, crops above. Today, some of the exhibits arranged in the barn cover the tools and equipment used by the farmer to raise and harvest the crops that provided fodder for livestock and commodities to sell. Other displays cover the domestic chores of the farmer's wife in the preparation and preservation of food and the making of clothing. Early examples of now common implements and appliances give the visitor a sense of passing time. The Museum's volunteers and Trustees have restored the property and added outbuildings for the Post Office, General Store, Blacksmith Shop, Carriage Shed, and Print Shop."
