Hopewell Furnace in Manual


The event was held on Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM.

A visit to the historic village of Hopewell Furnace. It is one of the finest examples of a rural American 19th century iron plantation. The buildings include a blast furnace, the ironmaster's mansion, and auxiliary structures.  It affords some wonderful photographic opportunities both outside and in. This outing is intended to be a "theme" outing.  The theme is shooting in manual mode. The idea being that we all get out of the aperture priority, shutter priority or even that "P" mode, and really make that camera do what we want it to.  No one is required to shoot manual, but  the varying locations should make it interesting if you are up to the challenge. There will be "mentors" available for assistance if anyone needs it.

We will be car pooling from the Panera Bread on Swedesford Rd in Exton.  Car pool leaves at 8:15AM. Or you can drive on your own and meet us there at 9:00AM at the visitor's center.
