The Lonaconing Silk Mill is the last intact silk mill in the United States. Located within the highlands of western Maryland in the small community of Lonaconing, the silk mill closed in 1957 and remains completely preserved. Despite this, it is listed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.
The Abandoned Lonaconing Silk Mill hands-on workshop is designed for entry level to moderately experienced photographers. Learn the basic operations of your SLR/dSLR camera, composure, what f/stop, shutter speed and ISO are and how they relate to exposure, the basics exposure bracketing and high dynamic range, the use of remotes and tripods, and introductory flash and lighting setup.
We will move about the silk mill during the four hours, allowing you to experiment and learn how to best use your camera. You will make mistakes – but we will be there to answer any and all questions and help you become a better photographer! After the event is over, a dedicated forum will be set up so that you can post your photos for critique and commentary by Abandoned.
