Field trip: Waterwork Museum Brookline

Display Event Calendar

The event will be held on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

We will visit the Waterworks Museum of industrial equipment. The museum is open late only on Wednesdays, making for good low light imagery as it gets dark early in November.

There is a suggested museum donation of $5-10 to be settled by the visitor. Because attendance and space are limited, we ask that you please sign up only if you are sure that you can make it, and please keep your RSVP updated if plans change.

Suggested equipment: camera with wide angle lenses and a tripod, the lighting is low, but please be considerate of others and not block walkways or stairs. Medium zooms work well, too, to reach the equipment that is fenced in. Experiment with fisheye and tilt-shift lenses. Shoot at low ISO and long exposure to utilize your camera's full dynamic range, you need to accommodate very bright lights and deep shadows. HDR will also work well here.
