Everett and Stone Mills Photography Workshop
The Stone Mill Photography Workshop provides an opportunity to explore and photograph an architectural icon of America’s Industrial Revolution. Its stone construction and slate roof make it unique among the surviving mills in Lawrence. In this workshop we will also have access to the Everett Mill and its classic stairwells.
In the morning, you will be treated to access to these two historic mills. Steven Perlmutter and Robert Lussier will guide you through the stairwells, open spaces and funky corners of these two historic buildings, as well as exploring the exterior from various angles. You can choose to shoot on your own, or receive individual instruction along the way.
- Setting Quality: JPEG vs. RAW
- Making ISO, Aperture, & Shutter Speed settings understandable
- Getting the right exposure
- Shooting brackets: The how and why
In the afternoon, you;ll have the option to continue photographing this unique space, or retreat to the classroom for
- Adobe Lightroom
- File management
- Processing RAW files (in Lightroom and Adobe Raw)
- High Dynamic Range processing demo
The level of instruction will be dictated by the knowledge of the group.
Yes. Lunch will be provided before the afternoon session. Probably pizza.
What to bring
This workshop is geared to all levels of photographers. So bring your camera, your imagination and your desire to learn some photography and a bit of history. If you own a DSLR bring it. If you own a point and shoot, bring it. We’ll work with you.
Additionally you may want to consider:
- A variety of lenses. If you have a DSLR or other interchangeable lens camera system, you may want to bring a variety of lenses. Wide angle works wonderfully well in these buildings, but the only limit is your own creativity.
- A sturdy tripod. Some sections are not well lit. A tripod will keep your camera steady for longer exposures and for shooting brackets.
- A shutter release cable. It will help eliminate camera shake on that tripod mounted camera..
- A laptop computer with photo-editing tools. We will be conducting demos in the afternoon, but you can also work on your own images. Computers will be securely locked in the classroom during shooting hours.
What to Wear
Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. The mill spaces we will be shooting are old. Very old. With old, comes dust and dirt and grime.
We’ll meet at the Everett Mill
