Slater Mill Historic Site Field Trip Sept 30th
Registrations open Sept 14th-You must pay for the event to be registered*
Slater Mill (1793), on the banks of the Blackstone River, is the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. This water-powered textile mill was the first successful cotton spinning factory. We will have a one hour tour of Slater Mill, Wilkinson Mill (1810), and the Sylvanus Brown House (1758) where you can scope out what you might want to photograph. Following that, we will be allowed one hour to photograph inside all three structures following the tour. Check out their website here http://www.slatermill.org/
If anyone wants to visit the gift shop in the Wilkinson Mill or see the excellent visitor's center across the street, do this BEFORE the tour since the site closes at 5:00 pm. Exterior shots can be taken before or after.
Suggested Equipment: A mid range telephoto lens would be perfect and a wide angle lens would result in some creative images. There is plenty of natural light but you can bring a flash and tripod.
