First Monday Event December 2014

First Monday Event December 2014

Our First Monday Event December 2014 will be at the Beckwith Mansion & Estate, 213 W Main Street, Palmyra, New York, 14522.

Here are the details:

When:  December 1st, 2014, 9am-11am
Where:  213 W Main Street, Palmyra, New York, 14522-1027
Who:  Anyone with a camera who would like to take pictures of Elizabethe’s extensive Christmas Village
What:  Bring your camera and a tripod is HIGHLY recommended.  This will be natural light, and you may bring a small hand-held light (like a flash light) to add accent lighting to the scene.  This miniature village consists of small houses and props that are of an era now past.
Why:  Because it is that time of the year when we break out decorations like this!

So, come create your own Currier and Ives style picture, and do it indoors where it will warmer.

Someone asked about lens size.  I would say a normal (5omm equivalent) would work well.  A wide-angle is not recommended as these are small houses (about 6x6x6 inches).

This will be a time to put on your creativity cap.  Think about how you might make these houses look “real” (like life-sized houses).  Just think… you may take a picture that will be your Christmas card for next year.
