HDR and Macro at Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum

HDR and Macro at 

Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum

This Farmstead museum is chock full of things: kitchen, store, farm equipment, you name it. It has all of the details for macro and is also perfect for HDR. We will meet on Sunday at 12:30. Tom and I will be providing instruction on composition, exposure, HDR, etc. for the first half and then we will also be photographing this wonderful place. We have posted some images in thephoto album from our last trip there.

"The Museum property was once part of John Holcombe's "Plantation", according to his will of 1742. In 1968, the Farmstead was donated to the Hunterdon County Historical Society In 1984, the property was deeded to the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead, Inc. The Museum is housed in the restored three story bank barn that was built into the hillside to make both floors accessible from ground level. Livestock were kept on the lower level, crops above. Today, some of the exhibits arranged in the barn cover the tools and equipment used by the farmer to raise and harvest the crops that provided fodder for livestock and commodities to sell. Other displays cover the domestic chores of the farmer's wife in the preparation and preservation of food and the making of clothing. Early examples of now common implements and appliances give the visitor a sense of passing time. The Museum's volunteers and Trustees have restored the property and added outbuildings for the Post Office, General Store, Blacksmith Shop, Carriage Shed, and Print Shop."
